Product brief:

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.

Key Requirements: Quality Control

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.

Key Requirements: Health and Safety

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.

Key Requirements: Long Term Performance

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.
