SP work widely with all kinds of barriers and we offer our quality labelling system, the P-mark, for those products.

There are a lot of different barriers to keep water out in a building. Some of the barriers e.g. the ones in bathroom walls are also to stop water vapour to avoid condensation inside the walls. In low energy buildings the barriers are to stop air flow.
