Balcony Refurbishment – Montrose Court, Nottingham
Montrose Court, a residential apartment block located in Nottingham required refurbishment work to the second level balcony. Set above occupied dwellings, the balcony’s existing asphalt waterproofing had begun to crack and required a new, seamless overlay system. The existing substrate was suitable to accept Proteus Waterproofing’s Pro-BW® (Fully Reinforced) overlay system, a waterproof covering incorporating Pro-Aggregate EM, to provide a skid-inhibiting finish to allow foot traffic.
Prior to the installation of Pro-BW® (Fully Reinforced), repair works were carried out to the outer perimeter, to provide a suitable termination point. The gully and outlets were also checked to ensure no blockages were present. After the repairs to the existing asphalt had been completed and cured, a layer of Pro-Sealer WB was applied to seal the deck in preparation for the Pro-BW® system. The Pro-BW® Base was first installed and Pro-Aggregate EM was applied, providing a durable and hard finish. The system was then completed by applying Pro-BW® Resin.
To minimise disruption to residents, particularly on communal walkways which may also form the fire escape routes, the waterproofing system needed to be low odour and fast cure. Pro-BW® (Fully Reinforced) is cold applied offering a fast cure and a return to service of the communal walkway within 2 hours from installation. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with approved contractor to ensure the system was installed to a very high standard.
Pro-BW® (Fully Reinforced) is a high performance, rapid curing protective waterproofing membrane for balconies and walkways making it ideal for refurbishment where structural movement has occurred. Pro-BW® (Fully Reinforced) reduces installation time from days to hours. Suitable for a variety of external applications, Pro-BW® (Fully Reinforced) can be installed on concrete & asphalt for communal and private balconies, walkways, staircases and pedestrian ramps. As it is a cold applied installation, the system meets health and safety criteria by minimising risk to both operatives and members of the public.
