Proteus - Protecting Walkways and Balconies

Walkways and balconies, essential elements in many commercial and residential properties, are constantly exposed to harsh weather, making them vulnerable to water ingress. This in turn can lead to structural damage, mould growth and safety hazards.

Proteus Waterproofing offers an extensive range of liquid applied membranes specifically designed to protect walkways and balconies from water damage. Our liquid applied membranes cure quickly, are colour stable, UV resistant, and skid-inhibiting, suitable for various refurbishment projects.

Benefits of Liquid Applied Membranes

Liquid applied membranes have several benefits compared to traditional waterproofing methods, such as:

• Rapid curing, which helps to minimise disruption on site. In many cases, walkways and balconies can be reopened to traffic within just a few hours of installation

• Our liquid applied membranes are UV stable, preventing fading and discoloration over time

• Our liquid applied membranes incorporate skid-resistant additives to ensure safety for pedestrians and vehicles, particularly under wet or icy conditions

• Liquid applied membranes are ideal for refurbishment projects, as they can be applied to a variety of existing substrates, including concrete, asphalt, and timber

• Proteus liquid applied membranes are cold applied, eliminating the need for open flames or hot works. This makes them a safer choice for both installers and occupants

• Our liquid applied membranes meet the most stringent of health and safety standards. They are low odour, non-flammable, and environmentally friendly

Applications for Walkways and Balconies

Liquid applied membranes can be used to waterproof a wide range of different types of walkways and balconies. They include:

• Liquid applied membranes are well-suited for waterproofing pedestrian walkways in commercial and residential settings. They provide a durable, slip-resistant surface that is easy to maintain.

• Liquid applied membranes can also be used to waterproof vehicle ramps and walkways in car parks and other industrial environments. They offer superior protection against heavy traffic and chemical spills.

• Liquid applied membranes are suitable waterproofing solution for balconies, both residential and commercial. They provide a seamless, durable membrane that protects the underlying structure from water damage and mould growth.
