Basement conversions and new build properties with basements are becoming an increasingly popular way of utilising more of your much-needed space.
At Builders Super Store we have the products and advice to ensure any below ground conversion project stays dry!!
PAM P8 Membrane is manufactured from polypropylene (PP). It is impermeable and resistant to the usual chemicals in the building construction. Studs are formed in a regular pattern on the one face of the product, spaced at approx. 25 mm centres. The product is supplied in rolls of 20Mtrs in length x 2Mtrs High. P8 carries a full BBA agreement certificate and complies fully with BS8102.
PAM P8 can be installed over a wide range of substrates in varying situations – walls, floors, ceilings, soffits, etc. However, before the system is installed, the area must be assessed to determine what preparation is required:
a) All timber fixtures and other organic material must be removed to prevent risk of fungal or bacterial growth behind the membrane, e.g. skirting boards, timber plates, old wallpaper etc. If
evidence of rot exists, this must be dealt with by a specialist contractor prior to installation of the membrane. If any mould, etc. exists, this should be cleaned off and the area sterilised with a fungicidal wash.
b) If the walls are uneven or areas have deteriorated, any large depressions should be levelled and made good to ensure a solid fixing.
c) When assessing floor applications, consideration should be given to the type of finish that is required. The floor must be cleared of oil, loose material and any sharp protrusions and should be
made level. Any holes or severe depressions should be filled. When a timber floor is preferred, then more consideration should be given to achieve a flat substrate prior to laying the membrane. This will relieve any undue movement when fitting a final floor finish.
