When it comes to Foundations and, more generally speaking, Underground structures, with exceptional rain events increasing in frequency and bringing a deluge of water over a short period, ensuring buildings and structures in contact with the ground are suitably protected is essential. These new rain patterns result in sudden changes in the amount of runoff and an increase in groundwater levels.
TeMa Building can supply a wide range of highly versatile studded membranes (with the option of lamination to a geotextile) and geocomposites for:
Foundations and Basement walls
Below-grade and retaining walls
Diaphragm walls, soldier pile walls
That offer top performance for the following functions:
Mechanical protection for waterproofing with systems designed to boost the general level of protection, delivering long-term reliability and longevity.
Damp-proofing, creating separation between the structure and the ground, which is inherently damp.
Water drainage, in order to reduce water loading on underground structures - both vertical and horizontal - in contact with the ground, and when dealing with water.
Stopping water ingress (as they reduce hydrostatic pressure on the surface).
Slight ventilation effect (if membranes are laid with the studs facing in).
Filtration and separation (membranes featuring geotextiles).
