Platon Waterproofing Membranes
Platon basement waterproofing membranes can be used for a wide variety of applications including:
- Existing basement waterproofing
- Cellar conversions
- Structural waterproofing
- New Build
Unlike conventional cementitious tanking systems, Platon waterproof membranes allow water into the building and then control it to a collection point before it is removed. The Platon waterproof membranes work alongside the Platon drainage system which is installed at the base of the waterproof membrane to collect the water that penetrates into the substrate and drops down behind the waterproof membrane. Once the water is collected in the drainage system, it is diverted into a natural soak away, sewer, or a Platon sump system to be evacuated from the building.
Platon studded waterproofing membranes are manufactured from high density polyethylene. They are impermeable, water repellent and resistant to the normal chemicals found in building construction. As well as being waterproof, the membranes are also a good barrier against contamination in the building substrate. The studs form an air gap against the underlying layer in the construction.
