Basement Tanking Systems
Rocksure Damp Proofing can provide cellar and basement tanking systems which are installed either to the positive pressure side or negative pressure side of a substrate. When the hydro-static water pressure pushes tanking applications onto the substrate, positive tanking pressure is applied. In case of negative tanking pressure, the cellar and the basement tanking system gets installed to the opposite side of the wall and this makes the hydro-static water pressure pushes the tanking application of the substrate. Although the process is difficult to achieve due to its comprehensive specifications, our specialists offer a seamless service according to your requirements.
In the tanking process of basements and cellar internally, products like asphalt, self adhesive membranes, liquid applied membranes, everything requires a supporting block or vertical brick work lining that normally filled with cement and sand mix. Damp Proofing Cellar and Basement systems can be applied to both floors and walls.
Whenever there is a hydro-static water pressure possibility, the floor must also be tanked to achieve the water light integrity. If the continuity cannot be completed or different systems cannot be tied together, the system can stay vulnerable to water access.
The most traditional method of water proofing is cementation tanking and epoxy systems that work as an alternative to cavity drain membranes in certain installations. Cementation systems are the best for contracts where limited areas needs treatment or drainage is quite hard to achieve. With cellar and basement tanking systems, cavity drain membranes can be used for such cases where there is flat soffit with no drainage falls or the head room is limited.
Surfaces that are treated should be correctly prepared. It should be free from all loose materials and contaminants and should be in a sound as well as solid condition. From application to floor products, each should be applied directly to the structural slab. In case of wall applications, products should be inserted between a sand and cement render coat. No matter what, special attention should be given to wall and floor junctions.
The use of fillet seal is large. It is a pre-packed, cement based and a polymer modified product used as a floor and wall junction seal during waterproofing. For a smooth transition between a horizontal and vertical surface fillet seals work really well. It minimises the risk of leaving gaps or holes unsealing during waterproofing.
