An Overview of Basement Waterproofing

We stock a wide range of basement waterproofing and basement tanking solutions. We specialise in waterproof membranes from brands such as Platon, Newton and our in-house Platinum brand, and offer all of the membrane plugs, fixings, tapes and ancillaries required to complete the installation of a basement waterproofing membrane. We also offer a number of other solutions for basement waterproofing including basement tanking slurry systems and basement drainage systems.

When to Use Basement Waterproofing Products

Our basement waterproofing and tanking products are suitable for use on the internal surfaces of walls and floors of cellars, basements and other areas below ground level. If you are looking for a damp proofing product for above-ground walls or floors, take a look at our collection of damp proofing products.

 

Basement Waterproofing Regulations

BS 8102: 2009, the code of practice for the protection of below ground structures from water from the ground, defines three types of waterproofing system – Type A (Barrier), Type B (Structural Integral) and Type C (Drained). Any of these, or a combination of two or more systems, may be specified in a Structural Waterproofing project.

To make life easier for the specifier or contractor who ideally will be looking for a single point of supply and support, Platinum Chemicals supply a comprehensive range of products for both 'Type A (Barrier)' and 'Type C (Drained)' Waterproofing.

 

Please contact us if you require any Technical advice on Structural Waterproofing.

Choosing the Right Basement Waterproofing Product

Type A waterproofing and basement tanking products work by blocking water from entering the building, whilst Type C cavity drainage systems redirect the water to an appropriate drainage point.

 

  • Basement Waterproofing Membranes

     

    Since the introduction of the British Standard for water proofing structures below ground (BS 8102:1990, subsequently replaced by BS 8102: 2009), the use of cavity drain membranes has become the most popular form of structural waterproofing in the UK. Our systems can easily deal with aggressive ground water conditions, where basements are liable to flooding, or indeed where simple dampness, contamination or salting problems are prevalent.

    Platinum Chemicals offer an extensive range of membrane types from shallow studded 'slimline' profiles (Newton 601 Slimline Membrane) to 8mm studded membranes (Newton 508 Cavity Drain Membrane; Platon P8 Cavity Drain Membrane) to deep 20mm Cavity Drain membranes (Newton 520 Cavity Drain Membrane) which allows a wide variety of situations to be dealt with providing tailored solutions. The final choice of membrane is determined by two factors: 1). The finish required and 2). The anticipated flow rate.
