Ensure that your below-ground structure is the primary resistance against water ingress with the Newton HydroTank System.
Type B Waterproofing – British Standard 8102:2009
British Standard 8102:2009 defines ‘Type B’ waterproofing as designing the structure itself to be integrally waterproof and the primary resistance to water ingress.
Nothing provides better primary resistance to water than a well designed and well placed reinforced concrete structure, designed in accordance with BS EN 1992 with sufficient steel reinforcement to limit flexural and sectional cracking to produce watertight concrete elements. The use of correctly designed and installed waterbars at the places where the concrete isn’t, such as at joints and penetrations, will result in a ‘Type B’ structure that should be fully watertight in its own right. For more robust waterproofing protection, BS 8102:2009 recommends combining two or more Types of waterproofing. Newton HydroTank can therefore be combined with our ‘Type A’ solutions Newton HydroBond or Newton HydroSeal, and/or our ‘Type C’ Newton CDM System.
The Newton HydroTank Solution
The Newton HydroTank solution includes a selection of BDA certified waterbars, waterstops, flanges, sealants and capillary blocking treatments that are used to seal the joints and penetrations through the concrete to achieve an effective ‘Type B’ solution.
