New Build – Falcon Wharf, East Sussex
Following a discussion with the Client, Proteus Waterproofing’s Cold Melt® system was selected as this cold applied liquid product can be installed onto a timber deck, removing the risk of fire.
Prior to the installation of the Cold Melt®, Pro-Prime® SA and Pro-Carrier Membrane SA were first installed to the timber deck and upstands, not only does this give the Cold Melt® a reinforcement but also gives very high tensile strength and acts as primary waterproofing layer. Cold Melt® is completely cold applied, which removed the risk of fire and it’s zero odour were key benefits. Once installed the Cold Melt® was covered with pavers to protect the membrane, making the terrace trafficable and provide the client with an aesthetically pleasing finish.
When working on new timber framed buildings, safety is of a paramount importance. Proteus Waterproofing worked in close partnership with the Approved Contractor to successfully complete the project to a very high standard, meeting all health and safety requirements and minimising disruptions.
Incorporating recycled rubber crumb and organically grown products, Cold Melt® creates an elastomeric, seamless, cold applied waterproofing membrane. The Cold Melt® system can include inverted roof insulation and, with or without insulation, can be designed as a paved, ballasted, green or brown roof. The membrane does not become brittle with age, and is BBA Certified to last the life of the building.
