Design Consideration 

One of the primary requirements of waterproofing design is the prevention of water ingress and the management of water and water vapour movement through and out of a structure. This ethos is identical for any below ground area(s) of a structure. 

Type C waterproofing manages water that penetrates the external shell of a structure by collecting it in a cavity formed between the external wall and an internal lining/wall. There is permanent reliance on this cavity to collect ground water seepage and direct it to a suitable discharge point.


Careful detailing plays an important role in waterproofing design. Whichever form of waterproofing system is specified or combination of systems, consideration should be given to the correct detailing to design out potential failures.  

Type C Membranes 

Delta’s Type C Cavity Drained Protection membranes provide a successful approach to structural waterproofing. All structures, however damp, degraded or contaminated, are upgradable into a dry, fully functioning habitable space.

Delta’s MS 500 Fire Retardant Membrane is an extremely effective Type C membrane which utilises the highest grade of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with a fire classification of B-s2, d0.  

Delta Basement Drainage Solutions

Basement Drainage ‘sump pump systems‘ should be engineered to cope with worst-case scenario of water ingress.
