Waterproofing Types:

Type A: Barrier Protection

  •  A barrier to water ingress is applied to the internal or external surface of the structure e.g. slurry

 

Type B: Structurally Integral Protections

  • The structure is formed as a watertight construction and requires no additional protection. Usually to the relevant British Standard and of reinforced concrete structure. BS 8007, BS 8110 and BSEN 1992 Eurocode 3

     

    Type C: Drained Protection

    As waterproofing system designers, Type C is the usually the preferred method for refurbishments and as part of a combined system for a new build property in need of waterproofing. Type C systems can be installed in any weather and groundwater ingress conditions. Other benefits include the ease of repairability and the ability to service and maintain the system.

    “Type C Drained protection type of construction is considered to be the most effective and trouble free form of basement waterproofing.

    Sump & Pumps

    The Sump & Pump system is at the heart of a Type C waterproofing system. Water enters the sump via the drainage channel before being pumped away to a convenient drainage point.
