What is Hollow Kick Molding Vapor Retarder System ?

layout.jpgHollow Kick Molding is a linear through floor drainage molding installed at the Cove Area where the basement floor slab abuts the interior side of the foundation wall, creating a floating slab. It directs water through the floor and into the drain tile pipe eliminating the possibility of water accumulating on the floor. It also ensures proper air displacement, which will free the water flow through the sub slab piping. It also conceals and protects the drainage opening with an attractive cove plate molding.
