What is Structural Waterproofing?
Structural waterproofing is a common term used to describe the act of waterproofing any structure. More specifically, structural waterproofing is a term applicable to any waterproofing construction project occurring below ground level.
Waterproofing Techniques – Type A, B and C
The British Standard 8102:2022 defines three types of waterproofing, Type A, B and C, and advises that two, and in some cases three, of these types should be used to achieve the desired grade of protection in a below-ground structural waterproofing project.
• Type A (barrier) protection – Northern Remedials can provide protection against water ingress by a barrier membranes applied either internally or externally to the structure.
• Type B (structurally integral) protection –Northern Remedials can offer the structurally integral sealing of joints and protrusions to provide a watertight, reinforced concrete structure.
• Type C (drained) protection –is a combination of products that are internally applied to provide a maintainable cavity drain waterproofing system.
