Dr!pStop is the absolute BEST WAY to handle condensation in uninsulated metal buildings; it fights condensation without insulation. Specially designed air pockets store condensation and hold it overnight, then it evaporates back into the air as humidity. Since Dr!pStop arrives on the jobsite already installed, it is not only safer, but it saves the time and labor costs of installing insulation. It also protects the steel by adding another layer of protection from the corrosive elements found in livestock confinement.
