When the walls of your home get wet from wind driven rain, it decreases the thermal resistance of the walls and can
result in increased heat loss, contributing to higher energy bills. Water acts as a thermal bridge causing heat to transfer away from the property, reducing the energy efficiency of your home.
Future Shield is a highly water repellent wall coating which improves energy efficiency by keeping walls dry.
When rain comes into contact with coated walls, the water forms droplets that simply run off the surface, reducing the water
absorption of the walls by up to 96.3%
Independent tests have demonstrated that brickwork treated with
Future Shield were significantly more energy efficient than untreated ones. The thermal image on the front, was taken during independent scientific testing and shows a 6⁰C difference in temperature between sections of the wall treated with Future Shield and the untreated centre section.
Moisture in the walls of your home can not only cause heat loss it can cause a host of problems for your house, your health and your pocket too.
By keeping your walls dry, you can help to prevent;
• Penetrating damp
• Structural damage caused by sulphate attack
• Cracking caused by frost
• Accelerated decay of building materials
Protect your home from the damaging effects of
the weather and give yourself peace of mind.
FUTURE Shield does not restrict the ability of your home to breathe. Independent testing (BS EN ISO 7783:2011) demonstrated the coating had little effect on air and moisture escaping. Unlike some stone and brick sealing products, it does not block the pores of the masonry by coating them with a thin film.
Treated masonry remains clean and attractive - dirt is washed away with rainfall. The lack of moisture in the walls helps to deter the growth of unsightly moss, algae or lichens.
