Delta Membrane Systems Limited has announced the release of its new 44-page, full-colour, Podium Deck Brochure.
The new brochure presents design and build philosophy, project detailing and specification/selection of the correct waterproofing and drainage protection systems for podium decks, buried roofs, blue roofs, green roofs, warm roofs, cold roofs, hybrid roofs, car parks and terraces & balconies.
Divided into key sections, the Podium Deck brochure features an array of easy-to-read text, technical drawings, detailing and 2D graphics. Successful podium deck and buried roof waterproofing design lies with choosing the most appropriate combinations of structure and waterproofing system to achieve pre-determined performance levels and criteria.
In order to design out risk of failure due to less than adequate workmanship, damage or defects on site it is also important to consider practicality and ease of installation, the phasing of the construction process and the scope for testing and certifying during construction. Therefore, the brochure focuses on design & build philosophy, definitions and choice of structure, selection or waterproofing, selection of drainage protection and detailed drawings.
Kevin Dodds, Director, explained, “Recent years have seen an increase in the use of podium decks, and it has been recognised that there has been a significant increase in failures. As a sustainable manufacturer, we feel duty bound to offer advice on correct design, installation techniques and the correct selection of waterproofing and drainage protection systems”.
