Structural Waterproofing Solutions
FIS act as designer, supplier and consultant to provide full structural waterproofing solutions for basements and water retaining structures throughout London and across the UK including Ireland and the Channel Islands.
Good quality Structural waterproofing design makes it possible for Architects and Engineers to create and construct valuable space below ground. For high-value land, maximising Return on investment is priority and FIS make it possible to create space below ground in the form of basements and often multi-level basements. Good structural waterproofing design can also help to resolve a whole range of problems in existing buildings; from waterproofing damp basements, underground vaults, cellars and tunnels to protecting commercial landmarks, car park decks, educational establishments, water treatment plants and swimming pools.
It is important to remember that reliable structural waterproofing installation and thorough waterproofing design are both equally important for the success of any waterproofing project.
Here at FIS Products, we offer bespoke structural waterproofing design, supply and warranty solutions. As CSSW qualified designers we can take responsibility for the waterproofing design and manage your project from concept design through to installation and completion. We will instigate and maintain the quality control procedure to ensure the installation is completed correctly.
Structural Waterproofing Systems and Design
The process to designing the correct waterproofing system to create a satisfactorily dry basement can be a confusing and complex process, you will see as per above there are many different products and systems.
But the British Standard for waterproofing – BS8102:2009 makes it clear that there are three types of waterproofing: Type A being External protection, Type B as Integral protection and Type C, a building’s Internal protection.
Here at FIS, we use the Premcrete manufactured a range of waterproofing protection systems and offer a particular advantage in that we provide the complete range of BBA-certified Type A, B & C systems from a single source with a single warranty. This maintains the simplicity of design and ensures complete compatibility at all levels whilst eliminating any discrepancies that may occur when products are used from more than one source.
