Spreadeagle Place, a block of residential flats in Ingatestone required refurbishment works to the communal walkways, as the existing waterproofing was in poor condition, causing water ingress to the retail outlets below. As the substrate was suitable for an overlay, Proteus Waterproofing specified Pro-BW® Plus a fully reinforced, fast cure system, allowing a return to service within two hours from installation.
High Performance Waterproofing
As the walkway provided the residents with access to their properties, a rapid cure coating was required to minimise disruptions. Being a fully reinforced, hard wearing system, Pro-BW® Plus could cope with the structural movement on the building. Pro-Aggregate EM was incorporated to provide a skid-inhibiting finish to allow foot traffic and offer a durable finish. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to ensure the project was completed to a high standard.
When working on communal walkways, which may also form the fire escape route, the waterproofing system needed to be cold applied and fast cure. Using Pro-BW® Plus removed the risk of fire to the building and low noise application allowed the Proteus Approved Contractor to complete the work safely and meeting all health and safety criteria, ensuring disruptions were kept to a minimum.
Long Term Performance
Pro-BW® Plus 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® Plus reduces installation time from days to hours. Suitable for a variety of external applications, Pro-BW® Plus 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. Pro-BW® Plus is BBA Certified and manufactured in the UK.
