Waterproofing: Steps, Newlands, Wilmington

A private residential building in Wilmington required the newly casted concrete steps which gave access to the terrace area at the rear of the building to be waterproofed.

Product brief:

To meet the client’s request, Proteus Waterproofing applied Pro-BW® Plus a fast curing, cold-applied system to protect the newly casted concrete steps.

Key Requirements: Quality Control

Pro-BW® Plus, a reinforced and seamless system was specified to ensure the complex detailing was fully encapsulated and waterproofed to eliminate the water ingress and extend the life of the steps by 25 years. Once the area was watertight, decorative slabs were applied. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the Proteus Approved Contractor to complete the project to a high standard.

Key Requirements: Health and Safety

To minimise disruptions, particularly in residential buildings, the waterproofing system needed to be low odour and fast curing. Pro-BW® Plus offers a return to service within two hours of installation and as it is cold applied, it removed the risk of fire to the building. This allowed the Proteus Approved Contractor to complete the work safety, meeting the health and safety requirements and minimising risk to both operatives and members of the public.

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 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. Pro-BW® Plus is BBA Certified and made in the UK.
