Weatherproofing the Arndale Centre 6m x 20m digital screen with Newton 201 Acriflex Winter and Newton Floorgum Paint. This project was highly complex, as the digital screen needed to be recessed into the building and fully weatherproofed.

The Solution

Working in association with Structural Engineers and facade specialists Eckersley O’Callaghan, designers of the iconic New York 5th Avenue Apple Store, the project involved the removal of thirty-six glazing panels, thus compromising the thermal and weather line of the building.

Working to the Engineers details, Trace Basements developed and constructed:

  • A new internal timber floor, wall and deck structure to encapsulate the area behind and above the screen;
  • This then received insulation with associated vapour barriers, fire compartmentalisation details, and;
  • Continuous waterproofing, enveloping and protecting what is now an external area behind the screen.

The Result

The requirements upon the waterproofing materials were exacting, including the satisfaction of criteria for the surface spread of flame. All were met by the Newton Waterproofing products employed, with liquid waterproofing membrane Newton Acriflex Winter, and protective waterproof coating Newton Floorgum Paint both expertly installed by Trace Basements.
