Structural Waterproofing

Waterproofing Techniques – Type A, B and C

The British Standard 8102:2022 is the ‘Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water Ingress. The British Standard 8102:2022 defines three types of waterproofing: Type A, B, and C, which are used in structural waterproofing. The standard explains how to waterproof retaining structures using the three types of waterproofing, and provides guidelines for designing and implementing effective waterproofing systems.

Professional waterproofing designers should consider using more than one type of waterproofing to provide enhanced protection of the structure.

Type A waterproofing systems are integrally bonded to the structure, while Type B systems are partially bonded, and Type C systems are non-bonded.

Each type of waterproofing system has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of system depends on the specific project requirements.

Examples of structures that require structural waterproofing include those that use self-healing membranes and reusable injection hose systems.

Benefits of Professional Structural Waterproofing

Protection and Cost Savings

Waterproofing commercial buildings can contribute to energy efficiency by reducing air leakage and heat transfer, resulting in lower utility costs. It also extends the lifespan of the building by protecting it from water damage, which can lead to structural issues.

When companies implement waterproofing systems in commercial properties, benefits can also include extra office and storage space as the basement waterproofing design provides a usable space below ground level.

Structural waterproofing can also increase the value of a property as future owners can be safe in the knowledge that a structural waterproofing design specialist has carried out the work and there will be no need for any waterproofing services, paying out for damp proof course or having to delay business to instruct a company themselves for structural waterproofing systems to be implemented… saving them time and money.
