Car Parks – Waterproofing for car parks, service decks and trafficable surfaces in general, presents special challenges for the material used.
On top of weather and external influences, there is the additional mechanical load from vehicle traffic and chemical influence from oils and de-icing salt among others.
Also, all joint and connections have to be integrated homogeneously into the waterproofed surface to avoid noise, vibration and vehicle damage.
WIDOPAN can provide solutions to all these problems, with reinforced, hard wearing and chemical resistant systems suitable for all types of trafficable areas.
Surfaces can be made slip resistant and car park surfaces and markings can be custom designed with our PMMA topcoat available in a range of colours.
WIDOPAN also offer solutions that ensure smooth, noiseless transition of structural floor joints.
Water fountains and Swimming Pools – When waterproofing fountain basins and Swimming pools there are a number of factors to consider.
Firstly, the ability of the waterproofing seal to cope with continuous ponding and the constant impact of ‘aggressive’ water.
Secondly, seals requirement to resist chlorine, and thirdly, the membrane had to be strong enough to cope with the stresses of foot traffic.
WIDOPAN’s extensive experience of cold applied liquid waterproofing has resulted in technically advanced products with the ability to handle all of the above requirements and more.
Wind Turbines – Wind turbines are continuously exposed to extreme elements, with wind forces and constant movement putting stresses on the structure. This can lead to cracks in the tower and the foundations causing water ingress and longterm damage.
WIDOPAN can provide fully reinforced and highly flexible waterproofing solutions that provide a strong and secure seal. The cold-applied liquid products are easy to apply and detailing around the structure is simple – leaving no seams or joints.
PV Installation Conventional mechanical fixings for photovoltaic and solar systems (modules and rails) on flat roofs involve drilled holes and additional loads which often lead to damage to the roof membrane and water ingress. Using our extensive experience of PMMA resins, WIDOPAN have developed WIDOCRYLPoint Fix – a specially designed resin for photovoltaic and solar installations.
Utilizing a unique fastening technology that has been fully tested, certified and protected by registered design, WIDOCRYL-Point Fix is an ultra-strong, fast curing fixing system with no need for screw connections or superimposed loads.
Simple application methods mean installation is completed in minutes.
WIDOCRYL-Point fix is especially suitable for industrial units with lightweight flat roofs where weight loading is an issue. WIDOCRYL-Point fix has been subject to rigorous testing.
The adhesive tensile strength values far exceed the required holding forces for wind suction load (DIN 1055).
Lightweight Screed – When waterproofing flat roofs, balconies or terraces, quite often there are insufficient falls on the structure for adequate drainage. This can lead to ponding water which in turn can cause deflection in the surface and an increased risk of water ingress and damage to the fabric of the building.
A layer of cement screed laid to falls is commonly specified to provide a solution for this, but with modern roof structures increasingly incorporating terraces and roof gardens along with waterretaining green, brown and blue roof systems, the extra weight this screed layer brings can be problematic from a structural point of view.
WIDOPAN has the perfect solution for this problem with our WIDOPERL lightweight polymer screed.
WIDOPERL is used as a levelling and filling compound for roofs, balconies, terraces and other areas with an uneven surface, or where a gradient filler is required.
WIDOPERL is a rapid curing screed that can be made completely flat and “smoothed out to nothing” with a walkable wearing course achieved the same day.
Five times lighter than a conventional cement screed, WIDOPERL is particularly useful for projects where weight loading is an issue.
