Installation of Newton 503 membrane with cavity drain system. Membrane mechanically fixed with newton Multi plugs to vertical wall which provide screw fixings through the membranes whilst maintaining water tightness.
We fixed horizontal battens to the multi plugs which enable us to install plasterboard to the walls. This formed the backing structure for the attachment of the kitchen wall units and cabinets. The fixed battens to the multi plugs also served as a void to run services for electrical wiring for the kitchen work top plug sockets.
Installation of the condensation strip is then fixed to the base of wall membrane to capture condensation built up at the forward facing side of the wall membrane which condensates at the dew point behind the the boarded structure to fix the kitchen units.
The next phase is to install the base drain set into the concrete slab to capture water rising from the water table also capturing falling condensation and water ingress from the walls.
A horinzontal membrane is then laid atop the base drains and the right angle connection sealed with water seal tape.
The base drains then drain via gravity to an external soakaway in the garden. No requirment for a mechanical sump pump to minimise installation and maintenance costs over the life span of the system.
A dry usable room ready to install a new kitchen. A successful basement waterproofing system provided to the client with a 10 year warranty (subject to annual maintenance).
