Within the waterproofing industry, one form of communication used is Technical Drawings; these are great for communicating how Delta‘s systems work.
Technical Drawings are a necessity for successful design and installation. It is easy to understand from the development stages how a waterproofing design will function and most of us as familiar with symbols, units of measurements, natation of systems and perspectives. These drawings are representations of a final design (the end-product).
We all know within waterproofing design there is not always one design to fit all, which is why Delta’s technical team are notorious for being able to think outside the box and design systems and sketches on the ‘back-of-the-envelope’ giving rough ideas whilst on-site.
These informal sketches serve to communicate a concept, offering how the idea takes shape.
Delta use both formal drafting (CAD & 3D images) and informal sketching (mainly, whilst attending site). Lots of its informal sketches are later transferred to formal drafting such as CAD and 3D, when they are back at their desks or in the office.
Delta currently offer more than 300 Technical Drawings, from External Waterproofing of Retaining Walls to waterproofing Pile Caps. That is a lot of info to house on one landing page, so Delta has categorised its drawings into 16 key areas, which are as follows…
– Type A – Barrier Protection
– Type B – Protection Integral
– Type C – Drained Protection
– Pumps & Drainage
– Combined Systems
– Damp Proofing
– External Waterproofing Systems
– Pre-Applied Membranes
– Decks, Terraces and Green Roofs
– Delta Glass Insulation
– Ground Gas Protection
– Combination Ground Gas Protection and Waterproofing
– Flood Resilience/Resistance and Recoverability
– Detailing Ancillaries
This complete library is a resource open to all. Delta’s Technical Drawings are available for easy download in both PDF and DWG files. Please note the CAD drawings are only applicable to projects within the UK and, if used in other countries, building regulations must be adhered to.
Delta is committed to building engagement and trust through the exchange of knowledge and ideas within the waterproofing industry.
Its focus is in the areas of education, skills development, best practice and solutions that span the life cycle of any structure. These are the areas where the company has strong knowledge and global expertise, and it feels it can make a real impact, not only on improving standards within the waterproofing industry but in the manufacturing process.
– Across the board range of projects, Delta provides:
– Waterproofing design (CSSW as a minimum standard of qualification)
– Able to provide principal considerations for a robust waterproofing design
– Offer knowledge on waterproofing systems available
– Have an in-depth understanding of BS8102:2009 and its requirements
– Have both desk top studies and risk assessment knowledge
– An understanding of sources of water (such as how it flows through the soil and interacts with the structures)
– Structural knowledge
– Knowledge of Ground Gases
– Geotechnical knowledge (to be able to understand the implications of a soil report)
– The ability to produce a Design Report, Method Statements and Technical Drawings
– Invest in product development
