HIGH PERFORMANCE AIR & MOISTURE BARRIERS
We’ve been protecting buildings since Art Nouveau was nouveau. For 125 years, we’ve been helping buildings stay drier and last longer.
It was the 1890’s, when Art Nouveau first started inspiring architects everywhere, that we started developing protective barriers for buildings. Today, DELTA®-VENT SA is the only air and moisture barrier with a complete line of application accessories, ensuring every building is 100% sealed. With DELTA®-VENT SA buildings stay dry, save energy, and last longer. A lot longer than Art Nouveau. No one knows protection like we know protection.
