High-quality utilization of waterproof basements

One solution for implementing waterproof basements with crack-bridging sealing of the exterior walls that is increasingly used are composite fresh concrete systems, FPO systems for short. By now, various manufacturers offer plastic sheet membranes that provide a waterproof connection to the concrete without allowing lateral water underflow between the concrete and the membrane once the membrane has hardened on the surface.

The waterproof thermal insulation system Thepro Dämm-Dicht-System from Roland Wolf GmbH combines thermal insulation with the FPO system and offers an additional alternative...
