Sealing around beams with TorchOn Tanking Membrane

Visqueen TorchOn Tanking Membrane is a heavy duty waterproofing membrane for above & below ground applications, in both vertical and horizontal situations. This photo gallery shows the benefit of TorchOn membrane versus any polymeric or SAM system.

Visqueen TorchOn prevents the ingress of water and is ideal for use in cold weather conditions due to the hot bonding (torch bonding) installation process. The use of hot bonding in cold and sub-zero temperatures provides a homogenously sealed junction, which can otherwise be difficult to achieve in cold weather.

These photos show a good method of application when sealing around beams with TorchOn Tanking Membrane, it certainly shows the benefit of torch on versus any polymeric or SAM system.

These images are part of a large housing development by Birch Homes. They show a high level of application and show our products correctly installed. Continue reading

Visqueen TorchOn Tanking Membrane – A heavy duty waterproofing membrane

Visqueen TorchOn Tanking Membrane is a robust waterproofing membrane, used for heavy duty tanking and gas proofing applications. It can be used both vertically and horizontally above and below ground level to prevent the ingress of water.

  • Robust tanking membrane
  • Suitable for gas protection applications
  • Torch bonded laps provide a homogenously sealed junction
  • Ideal for cold weather application
  • Used to waterproof basements, car parks, lift pits, reinforced concrete slabs, retaining walls

Visqueen TorchOn Tanking Membrane should be applied as a two layer system when used as a tanking system for below ground structures where high levels of hydrostatic (water) pressure exist in conjunction with an internal waterproof render in accordance with BS8102: 2009 type A structures.

Visqueen TorchOn Tanking Membrane can be used as a single layer system when used as a horizontal damp proofing membrane or in low risk situations. All laps should be a minimum of 150mm. The loading screed or floor slab which is laid on top of the membrane should be adequate to resist any hydrostatic water pressure.
