Drip Stop anti-condensation roofing is a way of dealing with the condensation on uninsulated metal roofs in a simple, economical way.
When the temperature and humidity conditions reach the dew point, moisture condenses on the underside of the metal roof. If there is a lot of condensation, drops of water form and start to fall, causing damage to the contents below.
The roof panel with Drip Stop anti-condensation felt provides a medium for trapping this moisture in the specially designed pockets formed in the membrane. Drip Stop holds that moisture until conditions go back below the dew point and it is released back into the air in the form of normal humidity.
It is easy to clean using a hose or pressure washer
Dripstop works effectively only when the building is sufficiently ventilated. It is recommended that ventilation at the eaves and ridge should not be obstructed by closing these points with profile fillers. This is so air can flow through these points and the membrane can complete it’s cycle of absorption and release, as demonstrated in the diagram below.
Dripstop is recommended suitable for use on Roof slopes > 10 Degrees
Dripstop is not recommended as a solution for condensation control where prevailing conditions of excessive dampness exist.
