This revolutionary new methodology combines British Standard 8102 scores with the type and quality of structure and the type of protection used. It also takes into account the competence of installation to give an easy to understand score for each project. The very highest scores qualify as Newton Protected Basements with a high quality 10 year warranty from a UK Grade A insurer.
The scoring system works in conjunction with the British Standard for waterproofing, which defines the three types of desired internal environment as Grades 1, 2 and 3. By reflecting these Grades in the scores, the Index makes it quick and easy to visually assess a design, from 0 through to 4.0.
Once assessed by Newton, designs are appointed with a scoring range, due to the fact that even within an agreed specification, the effectiveness of the waterproofing depends on the competency of the installation. For ease, these scoring ranges will also be presented on a scale.
Newton Specification Sheets are an integral tool within the Index, each bringing together key product information, NBS Clauses and 3D drawings into one complete resource.
Each Newton Specifcation Sheet also carries an Index score that is defined by the specification and the structure to which it is applied.
