Newton Waterproofing Systems
As specialists in damp proofing and structural waterproofing solutions, here at Newton Waterproofing Systems, we can offer many high quality basement waterproofing products.
Our Newton System 500 is our highly effective basement waterproofing solution including a fantastic waterproof membrane product range. Offering full technical support, our team of waterproofing experts can design and adapt technical drawings to create the best waterproofing solution for your basement environment.
When waterproofing a new-build basement, we recommend you follow suggestions contained in BS8102:2009. The standard advises on the types of waterproofing available and confirms the grade to be achieved:
We offer the following type of waterproofing for new-build basements:
- Type A (Barrier) protection – A barrier to water ingress is applied to the inner or outer surface of the structure
- Type B (Structurally Integral) protection – The structure is formed as a watertight construction and requires no additional protection
- Type C (Drained) protection – Water entering the structure is received by planned cavities or voids and safely removed
There are number of products and processes available when you need to waterproof an existing basement. We will help you choose the right product to gain the level of waterproofing you require for the intended use of the basement.
When waterproofing an existing basement, the two main options include:
- Attempt to hold water back by applying a barrier (tanking) to the walls and floor of the basement
- Install a cavity drain system (drained cavity) which receives and then discharges water ingress
In addition to basement waterproofing, we also specialise in concrete waterproofing using an innovative range of products. Our concrete waterproofing range consists of 301 Aquaproof metal waterbar, designed to provide instant protection to injectable waterbars and construction joints. The flexible polymer, Newton FlexProof- XL, can also be applied to construction joints as an additional effective waterproofing method.
For both refurbishment and new build projects, we supply proven structural waterproofing solutions. Our portfolio of products covers all aspects of structural waterproofing, from lift shafts or swimming pools to flat and inverted roofs. Our Newton System ranges provide innovative solutions for your structural requirements.
Drainage is an essential requirement to ensure a primary waterproofing membrane is not in constant contact with ground water. Our Newton System 400 drainage membranes have been developed to help reduce or remove the ground water pressure to the tolerances of basement structural designs to challenge this potential problem.
Pumping ground water from a cellar or basement ideally needs to be done quickly and efficiently to hinder structural damage. We have an extensive range of high performing clean, ground water pumps designed for many automatic or manual pumping requirements. We also offer a range of specialist pumps for dishwasher, waste and sewage.
We are specialists in damp proof membranes. We offer the best solutions tailored to meet your damp proofing demands. Our Newton System 800 range of damp proofing membranes has been used to treat damp in Windsor Castle, the Houses of Parliament and London Underground stations. A well as being quick and easy to install, our membranes have numerous other benefits all listed on our website with detailed information.
