The Benefits of Installing a Cavity Drainage Membrane from CavityTech Systems Ltd

  • Preparation
    As the damp proof membrane is mechanically fixed, there is no reliance on the system to bond with the substrate, so preparation is minimal. These membranes can also be applied to crumbly or dusty materials, which are often not suitable to receive an adhesive system.
  • Depressurising the Structure
    The studded membrane design creates an air cavity between the membrane and the substrate, allowing any moisture to move freely. This depressurises the structure, eliminating weak points and ensuring that the problem is not forced elsewhere. The most critical part of the system is the floor/wall junction, where we install suitable drainage channelling. This collects and directs any moisture to a suitable point for exit, thus creating a damp proof membrane.
  • Finishing
    A membrane installation is often finished using a dry-lining system, enabling electrical and plumbing services to be concealed. If required, we can also include insulation here to increase thermal values. As soon as the membrane/lining system is installed the basement area will feel instantly warmer and drier. Subsequent decoration can be carried out promptly.
