Basement and Cellar Waterproofing
Ideal For New Basements and Conversions
For basement waterproofing (often referred to as tanking for cellars and below ground areas), Newton System 500 cavity drain waterproofing incorporates a range of:
- BBA approved drainage membranes for walls and floors
- drainage provision
- sumps and pumps
These work together to offer a proven, innovative and highly effective cavity drain waterproofing solution. The system is maintainable therefore meeting BS8102 waterproofing regulation requirements.
How Basement Waterproofing With System 500 Works
Newton System 500 basement and cellar waterproofing solution places designed maintainable depressurisation voids at known weaknesses in the structure so that problem water is simply captured and diverted out of the property.
Newton System 500 is one of the easiest basement waterproofing systems to understand and specify. It is recognised by the British Standard and industry experts as the “least likely system to fail”.
Four Steps To A Dry Basement or Cellar
- Wall Membrane
Choose an appropriate wall membrane to suit your wall finish. In this example, Newton 508 has been chosen for the walls and is shown with both independent metal frame dry-lining and concrete block wall coverings.
- Drainage System
Choose your preferred method of water collection. Here Newton Basedrain is sat above the slab adjacent to a spacer of 50mm of closed cell insulation.
- Sump System & Pumps
Choose the most suitable method for removing the water. Here a Titan-Pro White sump system collects water from the Newton Basedrain drainage system via two connections of Newton Floordrain. The pumps would be chosen depending on factors such as the pumping head and the type of water collected.
- Floor Membrane
Choose the correct floor membrane for your finishes and floor loadings. Newton 508 is shown here with a 65mm screed above.
