ULTRA Membrane Systems are a range of basement waterproofing, basement tanking and damp proofing materials for the construction and restoration industry.
Basement waterproofing in Algeria
Another basement waterproofing project in Africa completed - this time it's the British Embassy in Algeria!
Basement Waterproofing in Nigeria
ULTRA Membrane Systems were asked to design and supply a suitable Type C cavity membrane system to this large basement in Onne, Nigeria.
Internal waterproofing products
ULTRA Membranes offer a full range of products for waterproofing structures internally. Cavity membrane is usually installed on walls and floors with drainage channels leading to a sump chamber where any water is pumped away to a suitable drain or soakaway.
Suretherm Anti Condensation Paint
Manufactured by N-Virol, Suretherm Anti Condensation Paint can be used in basements to prevent mould growth on walls and ceilings. Utilising glass hollow sphere technology, Suretherm retains heat for longer which reduces condensation and mould growth.

Waterproofing a basement using cavity membrane
Basement waterproofing or basement tanking has become very popular as more people decide to convert existing cellars or basements into habitable space. New build basements are also very popular as land becomes more expensive, the option to dig down and create space in the ground is a viable, realistic option for many people.
Structures that are below ground floor level are more susceptible to the possibility of water ingress. The type of basement waterproofing system or tanking system to use is therefore an important consideration as a variety of methods are available.
ULTRA Membrane Systems provide solutions for new and existing basements and the preferred method when waterproofing or tanking the structure internally, is now specified by designers, architects and specialist waterproofing companies in most instances.
Cementitious tanking is also an option which holds back water and allows for a build up of hydrostatic pressure however, it is therefore vital that the walls are prepared thoroughly before application can commence. This form of basement waterproofing or tanking relies heavily on several key factors and is considered a riskier approach by industry experts.
Type C Internal systems are the way forward as cavity drain membrane is designed to allow water to enter the structure and any excess water is diverted to suitable drainage points or in most instances, channelled into specially designed pumping systems.
Properly designed and maintainable basement waterproofing systems are extremely important to ensure that the internal space is kept dry and water penetration is dealt with by suitable basement pumping systems.
