We’re not satisfied yet, though. And that’s what keeps us innovating. In fact, we’ve recently upgraded our patented DryBrick damp removal system and created two new products.
SmartDry™ is the new international trading name of the renowned Dutch company Dry brick Systeem Vochtbestrijding b.v, which was established in 1982. During the last three decades, this company has become the European market leader in non-chemical damp proofing.
In 1979, Henk Schrijver invented a damp removal system that used natural airflow to draw moisture out of the walls of a building. Following installation of the Dry brick System in her property, an asthma patient noticed a significant improvement to her respiratory health. Her doctor wrote a paper on the case, which was presented at the medical conference for Asthma diseases in 1979 in London. This proved Henk’s hypothesis and the system went into production.
Our motivation is simple: create the most effective system at combating damp in the most sustainable way possible.

Green damp proofing
Damp is the natural movement of moisture, and it requires natural solutions to keep it at bay. Nobody wants to breathe in nasty chemicals or expose their family and pets to harmful sealants. That’s why the active component in our products is air. Just air.
This isn’t a new fad. We’ve been treating damp using natural principles since 1979. Damp proofing the green way, long before sustainability was even a consideration to most homeowners and building contractors.
