Waterproofing membrane combats water ingress at new build property

  • 17 Sep 2014

Contractor CCL installed the Newton 500 internal Type C Cavity Drain Membrane system to the Type B reinforced concrete box structure, working together to capture any water ingress that may occur through joints in the concrete structure.

The Newton Titan-Pro sump system, complete with full battery backup protection, was fitted alongside the Newton Acriflex via a roller to the mechanically prepared concrete on all interlinked balconies and terraces throughout the building.

Newton NuSeal-LM was then roller applied in two coats to act as a primer and vapour barrier, whilst the Newton 207 DeckDrain double cuspated drainage membrane was applied over Acriflex to protect the waterproofing layer and transport any water to drainage outlets situated within the podium deck structures.

Stone paviours were laid on a 50mm sand blinding layer to complete the terrace areas and CCL have specified Newton Acriflex Winter as one of its preferred premium podium/terrace waterproofing membranes.
