What are Waterproof Flooring Systems?
Waterproof flooring systems are used in specific areas to protect equipment or the concrete beneath the waterproof membrane. The membrane can be epoxy or urethane-based.
Benefits of Waterproof Flooring Systems
Certain areas need extra protection against water and moisture. Without this protection, repairs and replacement would be costly and unmanageable.
Benefit highlights include:
- Protecting critical areas below water sources (e.g. computer server room below a mechanical room).
- Protecting the surface against corrosive fluids as well as other harsh elements like sun and salts
- Reducing the absorption of water into concrete and thereby reducing cracking and breakdown
- Increasing the longevity of a structure
- Saving money on costly repairs, replacement, damaged equipment and lost time
