Water Proofing Treatment
Flood Guard Systems Ltd can if specified, use a water proofing treatment on building exterior
walls such as masonry to increase its resistance to flooding. Usually this will be specified
in the surveyors report carried out on all buildings being protected. It is usually specified
because there may be concerns as to the porosity of the outer wall of a building. To ensure
that the protective measures taken have the best possible chance of preventing water ingress
into a building, all possible weak points are identified and remedied, this may include
re-pointing, filling in of cracks and applying a water proof sealing agent.
Applying a water proof sealant agent could extend the time a building is resistant to water ingress, giving occupants the time to move valuable possessions or equipment to safer areas of the building, also giving the occupants time to either evacuate if possible or move to a higher part of a multi floored building.
The water proofing treatment FGSL use is a carefully designed co-polymer acrylic coating. Clear in colour and is available in three concentrations.
