The Newton CDM System is a comprehensive Type C Waterproofing System and will usually be suggested as one of the forms of waterproofing where a completely dry internal environment is required.
This maintainable basement waterproofing solution is ideal for both new-build basements and refurbishment projects.
The system comprises of BBA approved Cavity Drain Membranes, Drainage Conduits, Sump Chambers, Pumps, and associated Control and Telemetry Systems.
British Standard 8102:2009 defines Type C waterproofing as 'drained protection' where water leaking through the structure is accepted into voids and air spaces, created by cavity drain membranes that are strategically placed to the inside of the structure, depressurising the incoming water and safely removing it from the property.
A combination of our decades of basement waterproofing experience with our industry-leading products, the Newton CDM System is certified to the BES 6001 standard for responsible sourcing, and includes a range of BBA Certified Cavity Drain Membranes.
These membranes, coupled with the bespoke sump and pump configurations, backup systems, telemetry and ancillary options, makes it the most reliable and maintainable waterproofing solution for any habitable space below ground.
For more robust waterproofing protection, BES 8102:2009 recommends combining two or more Types of waterproofing. The Newton CDM System can therefore be combined with Newtons Type A Solutions Newton HydroBond or Newton HydroSeal, and/or Newtons Type B Solution Newton HydroTank.
Professional waterproofing designers should always consider using more than one type of waterproofing to provide enhanced protection to the structure and achieve the necessary environmental grade.
