Terrace Refurbishment, Putney Vale Estate
Putney Vale Estate, a local authority residential block in the London Borough of Wandsworth, required a waterproofing coating with a durable skid-inhibiting finish as an overlay to the communal walkways. Suitable as an overlay so avoiding the removal of the existing asphalt, causing disruptions to the residents, Proteus Waterproofing specified Pro-BW® Plus a fully reinforced, fast cure system, allowing a return to service within two hours from installation.
Key Requirements: Quality Control
As the communal walkway provided the residents the sole means of access to their properties, a rapid cure coating was required. Being a fully reinforced coating, Pro-BW® Plus could cope with the thermal and structural movements of the original asphalt covering. 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.
Key Requirements: Health and Safety
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.
Key Requirements: 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 may occur. Pro-BW® Plus reduces installation time from days to hours and is suitable for a variety of external applications. Pro-BW® Plus can be installed on concrete and asphalt on communal and private balconies, walkways, staircases and pedestrian ramps. As a cold 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.
