Hyload Protection Board

Application

Suitable for use with domestic and commercial projects of all sizes. For installation directly over damp proofing membranes (DPMs) and structural waterproofing membranes. Can also be specified as temporary protection to finished work - consult manufacturer for details.

Description

Tough, flexible polymeric board for protecting membranes against the damage caused by pedestrian/ vehicular traffic, and abrasion caused by backfilling.

Features and benefits:

  • Rot resistant - provides permanent protection.
  • Resistant to contaminants including the alkali attack contained within normal soil conditions.
  • Flexible, robust and easy to cut/ fold.

Applications:

Suitable for use with domestic and commercial projects of all sizes. For installation directly over damp proofing membranes (DPMs) and structural waterproofing membranes. Can also be specified as temporary protection to finished work - consult manufacturer for details.

– Horizontal:

  • In normal conditions, the board should be loose-laid with butt joints onto the area to be protected.
  • Joints must be over-taped using self-adhesive vinyl tape.
  • This reinforces the joint and helps to secure the board in place whilst also preventing aggregate fines being washed down on to the protected surface.

– Vertical:

  • Can be temporarily secured to the vertical surface using Hyload DPC Jointing Tape.
  • Three strips of tape should be positioned parallel to the longest side and equidistant across the board. Remove the silicon release paper and press the board into position.
  • These methods are sufficient to hold the boards in position whilst back-filling.
