Bituminous Waterproofing Membranes for Healty Buildings
Global warming which is one of the most important problems of the last century negatively affects our structured areas as well as natural life.
Impacts of global warming in the form of drought, unseasonal heavy precipitation (hail, rain, snow, etc.), flood undoubtedly have negative effects both on us and on our cities and structures.
Increasing underground water due to heavy rain increases the pressurized water affecting foundations of buildings therefore preventing water ingress and sufficient drainage has become even more important.
The same can be true also for roofs. In the event of sudden and heavy rain, the water needs to be removed from the roof correctly to prevent water ingress in a building.
As for below ground areas such as foundations and foundation walls; bituminous waterproofing membranes which prevents damage of corrosion to building foundations also help to protect your building against the potential effects of an earthquake.
Bituminous waterproof membranes maintain their flexibility in low temperatures and does not rupture and have high flow resistance in high temperatures maintaining its form therefore can be applied in all climatic zones.
Waterproofing membranes which provide protection against weather conditions and other natural events can be safely used for waterproofing on flat and pitched roofs, terraces, wet surfaces, below ground areas such as foundations, basements, pools as well as on special engineering structures such as multi-storey car parks, highway bridges.
Waterproofing membranes which have been used reliably for many years to waterproof millions square meter of below ground areas and roofs provide quality integrity and eliminate insulation risks associated with application.
Bituminous waterproofing membranes which are the first waterproofing option that comes to mind offer guarantee for durability, flexibility and a long economic life and 100 percent waterproofing.
Waterproofing membranes should meet TS EN 13707 and TS EN 13969 standards which are used in all European Union countries and Turkey and have CE and TSE certificates.
Bituminous Waterproofing Membranes that are often preferred for green roof applications should be tested for root barrier resistance according to the test method recommended by FLL and certified for root resistance.
