The client’s requirement was for a supplier who could provide a complete waterproofing basement solution, including all the joints, pile caps and pile head waterproofing.
Fosroc’s Proofex Torchseal 4S membrane was the ideal solution due to its suitability against the local ground conditions, its durability and performance for all the different basement applications in this project and as it is manufactured from premium grade heavily modified bitumen, reinforced with a core of non-woven polyester fabric, its resistance to puncture is excellent and ideal for such a demanding project.
In addition to the outstanding technical properties of the chosen Fosroc product system, a comprehensive technical support service was given to the site team showing that Fosroc is a leader in delivering total waterproofing solutions.
Project team personnel said "The ability of Fosroc in providing on-site specialist support, practical advice and quick proposals to resolve project issues were key factors in the success of this waterproofing task."
