Cavity Drain Membranes

cavity drain membranesDELTA® Cavity Drain Membranes

We have a extensive range of cavity drain membranes to protect your property against the damage of water ingress caused by hydrostatic pressure (groundwater pressure). Our membranes can also be used as protection against rising damp as well as being gas proof.

Internal Cavity Drain Membranes

Our internal membranes are used as a type C waterproofing system forming a waterproof barrier as well as adequately draining the water to a suitable outlet, in most cases a sump pump drainage system.

Before a cavity drain membrane is laid or fitted on walls and floors constructed of new concrete, the concrete surface should be treated to reduce the risk of leaching of free lime and/or mineral salts and to avoid the obstruction of the drainage system. This can be achieved by using our Polysil TG500 anti-lime treatment.

See below our range of cavity drain membranes

  • MS500 –8mm cavity, can be used on walls, floors, above and below ground
  • PT Lath – 8mm cavity, meshed membrane, can be used on walls, above and below ground
  • MS20 20mm cavity, typically used on floors but can be used on walls
  • FM 3mm cavity, typically used on floors above ground but can be used on walls and floors above and below ground.
  • Plasterlath – ~7mm cavity, meshed membrane, can be used on walls, above and below ground
  • PT Slimline – 4mm cavity, meshed damp proofing membrane, ideal for rising damp above ground
