Application

Waterproofing , tanking, lining planters, civil engineering and temporary protection (internal and external). For exterior of basements and subterranean structures.

Description

Protection and drainage layer with geotextile fabric bonded to one side.


Features and benefits:

  • High density polyethylene (HPDE) with polypropylene geotextile material.
  • Waterproof membrane manufactured with an egg-box shaped profile to prevent abrasion and puncturing of tanking membranes and allow water to drain vertically down the side of the structure.
  • Geotextile fabric allows water to pass through to the HDPE membrane but keeps soil and particles in place, avoiding hydrostatic pressure on the structure and waterproofing system.
  • Resistant to chemicals, roots, mould and bacteria, but requires protection from UV.
  • Harmless to drinking water.
  • Can flex and be shaped around awkward areas and details without compromising the seal.
  • Folded around the catchment system laid beneath which will pump or drain the water away.

Fixing

Wall fixing.

  • Individual sheets can be fixed together either using double sided tape or with fixing studs and nails.
  • The studs are specially designed to fit into the cups. They have a hole in the middle to drive the nails or screws through and will seal the membrane around the nail fixing so no water will go into the pierced area.
  • A cover profile can be fitted to the top edge of the drain, ensuring ventilation of the air gap and prevents particles or water clogging the cavity.

Accessories

None.

Protecto-drain tape.

Bituminous double sided tape for bonding sheets together and to the structure.
