Proteus - Protecting Industrial Guttering
Industrial guttering plays a vital role in protecting buildings and infrastructure from the elements. However, these structures are constantly exposed to difficult weather conditions, heavy debris, and chemical spills, making them vulnerable to wear and tear. Over time, this wear and tear can lead to leaks, corrosion, and structural damage.
Proteus Waterproofing offers a wide range of liquid applied systems designed to protect industrial guttering from water damage and corrosion. Our liquid applied systems use polymer technology to provide a robust, seamless membrane that adheres tightly to the substrate.
This membrane effectively seals cracks, joints, and imperfections, preventing water and other contaminants from penetrating the guttering system.
Liquid applied systems offer a number of advantages over traditional waterproofing methods, including:
• Our liquid applied systems are constructed to cope with the rigorous demands of industrial environments. They are resistant to cracking, tearing, and abrasion, ensuring long-term protection for your guttering system
• Liquid applied systems form a seamless membrane, significantly reducing the likelihood of leaks at joints and seams. This is particularly important for industrial guttering systems, which are often complex and have multiple components
• Proteus liquid applied systems adhere tightly to a variety of substrates, including concrete, metal, and timber. This makes them ideal for waterproofing new and existing guttering systems
• Our liquid applied systems are resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, alkalis, and solvents. This is essential for industrial guttering systems, which may be exposed to harsh chemicals from industrial processes or environmental hazards
Proteus liquid applied systems are designed for straightforward application, suitable for complex guttering systems. They can be applied by brush, roller, or spray, and require minimal surface preparation
• Our liquid applied systems cure rapidly, minimising downtime and disruption to your business
Industrial Guttering Applications
Liquid applied systems can be used to waterproof a wide range of industrial guttering systems, such as:
• Box gutters, which are commonly used in industrial buildings and warehouses
• Liquid applied systems can also be used to waterproof valley gutters, which are used to collect and divert rainwater from multiple roof slopes
• Liquid applied systems can be used to waterproof industrial downpipes, which are used to transport rainwater from gutters to the ground
• Liquid applied systems can also be used to waterproof gutter flashings, which are used to seal the joints between gutters and roofs

Why is it important to waterproof industrial pitched/gutters?
Industrial pitched/gutters are exposed to a variety of harsh elements, including rain, snow, ice and chemicals. This can cause the roof and gutters to deteriorate over time, leading to leaks and water damage. Waterproofing systems assist in protecting the roof and gutters from these elements, potentially prolonging their service life.
What types of industrial pitched/gutters are Proteus Waterproofing systems suitable for?
Proteus Waterproofing systems are suitable for a wide range of industrial pitched/gutters, including:
• Manufacturing plants
• Distribution centres
• Agricultural buildings
• Power plants
• Chemical plants
• Petrochemical plants
What maintenance is required for Proteus Waterproofing systems?
Proteus Waterproofing systems generally require low maintenance. Simply inspect the system regularly for any signs of damage or wear and tear. If any damage is found, it can be easily repaired using the Proteus Waterproofing repair kit.
