User-friendly and sustainable

According to the manufacturer, ThermalDrain is a user-friendly synthetic protection board that is more durable than fiberglass and provides excellent drainage. It is also said to be the only protection board that provides an R-Value in addition to containing 70% post-consumer recycled content.

ThermalDrain’s patented design provides consumers with a flexible, easy-to-bend protection board that is environmentally friendly and will not irritate your skin, GMX reports. It is designed to be used in conjunction with spray-applied waterproofing.
