Main Products & Applications:
Delta provides waterproofing products for all three types of waterproofing (Types A, B & C) as defined within BS 8102:2009.
Our ‘Type C’ Waterproofing Systems are a maintainable basement/below ground waterproofing solution for new-build basements, refurbishment and retrofit projects. The Type C System comprises of a Cavity Drain Membrane, Drainage system, Package Pump and Control System.
In principle a cavity drain membrane system allows moisture or running water to travel behind the membrane within a controlled drainage system. A cavity drain system requires minimal preparation and disturbance to an existing substrate.
In various formats podium decks have been around for many years, however they are becoming more widely used on top of basement constructions as either paved areas, gardens or terraces. A podium deck is a structural element which is essentially an elevated platform which allows for usage both above and below, these may be terraces over underground car parks, gardens over basements, balconies over terraces and patios.
External Drainage Systems are also known as external tanking, which is the application of a waterproof membrane to the outside of a basement or substructure in accordance with BS 8102:2009 (Type A).
Delta Membrane Systems Limited offer a comprehensive range of ground gas protection solutions along with its structural waterproofing solutions. From our MemTech ground gas membranes to waterproofing systems, our product range is designed to deal with all ground gas, contaminants and waterproofing related problems.

Specialist Basement Drainage – Pumps and Flood Protection
We have a team of application engineers who can assist with selection of ground, surface & foul water pump stations. This can be carried out against drawings, meetings on site & your offices or ‘via net’ viewer sessions.
We can also provide solutions for Flood prevention for both renovation and new build projects.
Damp Proofing – Above ground
Damp Proofing is the process in which methods are used to prevent water/water vapour from travelling through walls and floors from ground level up (rising damp). There are other ways damp can enter walls, but this is the most common.
Delta offer a range of physical and chemical DPC’s that can treat all types of Damp.
Structural Waterproofing – Pre-formed, Liquid Applied & Injection
Delta offer a wide range of waterproofing solutions for all types of applications. Products include pre-formed membranes & ancillary products, liquid applied systems, movement and construction joint waterproofing and injection systems. Please contact our technical team for support in selecting the right system for your project.

Delta Membrane - The Importance of Active Leak Stopping
For anyone in a non-technical sense to fully appreciate the nature and risks associated with water ingress in below ground structures, we invite you to read this paper to gain an understanding of substructure waterproofing and the importance of remedial action. Potential consequences of active leaks are numerous, from cost for remedial works to reduction in building life cycle.
Sources of external water such as a high or rising water table, river, extreme weather, tidal changes, poorly drained soil, defective drains can all result in water penetration of a structure at below ground level.
This penetrating water may have enough pressure and strength to ingress a structure, even one which is presumed to have been adequately waterproofed.
Basements and other below ground structures can leak both during and after construction. Any construction below ground will always be subject to groundwater. Groundwater will try and will seep through cracks and joints in all construction. Joints (from movement to floor/wall junctions) will always require attention when waterproofing and these are common pitfalls in project fails.
There are often miscommunications and understanding of definitions of waterproofing. It is often presumed one waterproof system is enough to ‘waterproof’ a below ground structure, leading to a misconception that the structure is impervious to ground water.
Waterproofing design should always be undertaken by a Waterproofing Design Specialist, someone with a CSSW or equivalent qualification and to be designed to meet British Standard BS 8102:2009. A Waterproofing Design Specialist will always design a waterproofing system to reduce risk, this system will combine the project requirements with best practice. The successful choice, design and construction of a waterproofing scheme rely on heavily on communication between the manufacturer, design team, installer, contractor and owner – a better understanding of advice and practicalities encourage Best Practice and ultimately openness, transparency and accountability.
Remedial work to active leaks in construction, which is exposed, are relatively easy to find and fix. If the construction is not exposed and finishing’s are in place, these leaks are difficult to find but not impossible. Use of a thermal imaging cameras/borescopes/moisture meters or visual inspections are usually enough to locate these leaks.
Depending on the leak itself will depend on the remedial work required. It is important to understand the waterproofing options available and how these will have a cost and time implication to a project.
