BS8102 is the main design guide for structural waterproofing in the UK. Newton System 500 is a maintainable system, so complies with BS8102 requirements. BS8102 also specifies that:
“a waterproofing specialist should be included as part of the design team so that an integrated waterproofing is created”
Therefore it is our recommendation that Newton System 500 is installed by a Newton Specialist Basement Contractor (NSBC). For a list of installers in your area please ring 01732 360 095 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
