/INS. Moisture in buildings is a big problem in the construction industry. Trapped moisture, either due to external intrusion or condensation from within, causes dampness, damages structures and can lead to mould that has serious health implications. Walki has developed a new, unique membrane that prevents humidity from getting to the structures of the building. Walki®Active is a dual-purpose, vapour variable membrane made from PP non-woven and a functional film layer. The variable water vapour barrier property makes Walki®Active ideal for circumstances where there are big variations in temperature and moisture.
