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.

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 Detailing Brochure – Continuity waterproofing/Reducing Risk
Delta Detailing Brochure – Continuity waterproofing/Reducing Risk
Delta Membrane Systems Limited’s new ‘Detailing’ brochure seeks to bridge best practice with techniques and products to ensure continuity of waterproofing systems and project success.
Delta’s newest edition of brochure offers architects, specifiers, developers, contractors and homeowners’ advice on continuous waterproofing solutions. In its most basic form, Delta’s newest edition is instinctive - a wet basement requires remedial works, if there is an active leak, it requires stopping – whilst it is understood that there are numerous waterproofing solutions available, are these systems and solutions continuous and able to withstand the test of time and offer durability to the structure life cycle?
The main objective of this brochure is to provide some steps that can be immediately followed in any kind of structural waterproofing project to reduce the risks, to facilitate understanding and to improve the expected results. Common defects within structural waterproofing systems are estimated to cost £25 million per annum in the United Kingdom. Delta believes that the waterproofing sector can achieve near zero defects, by adopting successful continuous waterproofing techniques along with applying the correct built philosophy whilst utilizing best practice which all will influence the success of a project.
The new Detailing brochure compliments Delta’s already, extensive collection of brochures which envelop the structural waterproofing industry, including Podium Decks, Flood Resilience, Type C Systems.
This contemporary, 48-page brochure includes BS8102:2009 Design Philosophy, photography of good detailing that showcase an array of techniques, products and how they can be incorporated to achieve a continuous/continuity waterproofing solution. Resources to anticipate defects in systems and principles to detect and manage the same.

Delta’s Technical Waterproofing Consultant, Michael Vernon on flood events
Delta’s Technical Waterproofing Consultant, Michael Vernon gives advice on minimising negative impacts from flood events and measures to rapidly recover from a flood event
Floods are part of nature. It is not technically feasible to prevent flooding, but you can take steps to prepare for a flood event, should your property be located within a flood risk area.
It is important for homeowners to firstly understand the basics about flooding and the associated risks.
Important Considerations for Homeowners when choosing materials for flood resistance, resilience and recoverability
• What is a flood
• What is flood risk
• For homes in a flood risk area, flood depth
• Flood duration
• Flood onset
• Flood annual probability
• Sources of Flood
• Availability of flood warning
• Speed of flood rise
• Velocity of flood
• Ease of Evacuation
• Assess how flood water enters property
• How flood water affects the structure during a flood event (this task may need to be undertaken by a surveyor)
Before then turning to products
• How do these products protect a home during a flood event?
• Do these products offer Flood Resilience, Resistance or recoverability (or all)?
• How are these products installed?
• Are these products readily available?
• Will these products reduce home insurance costs if installed?
• Will I be able to get home insurance if I install these products?
• Do these products meet BS85500:2015 requirements?
• Will these products protect a structure in an event of flood without having any detrimental long-term effects on the structure?
• Does this product have a BBA Accreditation?
• What is the life cycle of this product?
• Can manufacturers make easily available third-party test data?
• Do materials meet fire regulations?
• Do materials have CE Mark certification?
• Are Product Data Sheets easily available?
• Are Technical Guidance notes easily available?
• Is there Technical Assistance both on and off site?
We believe flood resilient design is not a single solution, concept or perspective. It is an approach to changing the built environment.
Whilst protecting a building from being flooded is not cheap, taking steps to protect a home from flooding may enable the occupants to continue living in their home/having use of their building after a flood event, continuing business and services and obtain insurance at a more affordable rate.
Resistance and resilience measures can avoid the need to claim on insurance in a flood event or reduce the value of any claim made. Insurers will take flood resilience measures into account when providing insurance to large commercial and public sector customers. For homeowners, specialist insurers will take account of resistance and resilience that are installed to reduce the effects of flooding.
Flood risk takes into consideration the harm that a flood can cause. It is a combination of the probability (likelihood or chance) of an event happening and the consequences (impact) if it were to occur.
