Emecole Dimple Board for Exterior Drainage provides waterproofing protection around the foundation by preventing ground water from making contact with the wall. The added dimple design provides air gaps that allows for back side drainage to occur, minimizing the moisture content that could otherwise be subject to wicking up through the footer and through the interior cove (where the wall meets the floor). The Dimple Board also adds a layer of protection from water in the event the foundation cracks, either due to shrinkage, ground movement or other concrete defects.

The Dimple Board is suitable for use on poured foundations or concrete block in residential foundations and shallow light commercial foundations. May be used as a standalone waterproofing solution or in conjunction with Emecole Water-Stop, our liquid applied exterior waterproofing membrane that forms a seamless, smooth and continuous moisture barrier. The combined use of Emecole Dimple Board and Emecole Water-Stop provides the most comprehensive exterior waterproofing protection while offering homeowners the ultimate peace of mind.

The Dimple Board is secured via Emecole Dimple Board Connector Plates, which fasten along the seams of the board.
