Choosing the Right System
Two different waterproofing systems are available, with the correct choice being driven by a number of factors.
Structural Waterproofing System
The Structural Waterproofing System(SWS)is designed to be both highly effective and simple to apply. SWS Slurry Powder is simply mixed with water and applied to the prepared masonry surface using a block brush or trowel. The applied product forms an extremely strong chemical bond with the masonry, blocking the passage of water, and becoming an integral part of the structure.
SWS Slurry is complemented by ancillary products to deal with floor/wall junctions, high salt levels and other commonly found situations.

Cavity Drainage Membrane SystemStructural Waterproofing System
The Cavity Drainage Membrane (CDM) system provides an exceptionally fast, convenient method of waterproofing walls, floors and ceilings on new build and refurbishment projects. The membrane is attached to walls and ceilings by means of special sealed fixing plugs. While on the floor there is normally no need for any form of fixing.
CDM can be covered with plasterboard, dry lining, screed or a floating timber floor. If any free water enters the cavity behind the membrane then a drainage facility, possibly incorporating a sump and pump, will need to be built in.
