IKO’s Above and below ground structural solutions
Damp Proof Courses
Building regulations require the use of DPCs in masonry wall constructions to prevent the upward movement of water by capillary action (rising damp), water transferring from one part of the structure to another for example at door sills and window jambs and to prevent the downward movement of moisture.
IKO Hyload DPC and Cavity Tray Systems encompass a comprehensive family of high performance, specialist damp proofing products, each highly evolved for the job in hand, including insulated, gas and fire resistant systems.
Damp Proof Membranes
Building regulations require the use ofDPMs positioned either above or below solid concrete floor slabs in contact withthe ground, to prevent the upward movement of water by capillary action (rising damp).Any suspended floor ofin-situ or precast concrete next to the ground, such as beam and block floors, also requires the incorporation of a DPM if the ground below the floor has been excavated below the lowest level of the surrounding ground.In both instances, the DPM should be continuous with the DPC in the walls.
IKO Hyload Tanking Systems provide a means of preventing the entry of water from the surrounding ground into a structure at ground level, below ground level (hydrostatic pressure) and on sloping sites.
This waterproofing range consists of Type A Barrier membranes, which form part of structural waterproofing systems designed to be compliant with the guidance of BS8102:2009. Gas resistant tanking protection is also available.
