BS 8102:2009 The British Standard for Waterproofing
The British Standard 8102:2009 Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water From the Ground 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).
“Having worked with the quality products from Newton System 500 range for the last 14 years we have every confidence when issuing our long term guarantee on installations. The durability and performance of the products in service have proved exemplary.”
