Heyen Structural Waterproofing Solutions
Water is collected in the cavity between the external wall and the cavity drain membrane and diverted to a suitable drainage point. Cavity drain membranes are loose laid on floors and fixed to walls using special plugs and sealing materials.
This system is used extensively in conservation projects and new builds where a second form of waterproofing is required, there is often little or no preparation required to the substrate.
Once the membrane has been fitted, wall surfaces can be dry lined or plastered directly. Floors can be screed or a floating dry board system can be installed.
According to BS8102:2009, a waterproofing expert should be consulted at the outset of a structural waterproof design.
Working with Heyen from the start of a waterproofing project means we can provide the specification and materials to comply with the recommendations of BS8102-2009 right through to the end.
Sourcing all your materials from Heyen means that there are no non-compatibility issues when a combination of systems is used.
