Tanking & Podium Decks
Structural waterproofing or “tanking” is essential for many structures to avoid water ingress. It is the method of preventing underground water ingress by creating a fully impermeable waterproofing barrier. Underground tanking demands highly efficient waterproofing to ensure its watertight function remains.
Tanking typically refers to underground waterproofing, such as on basement walls for example. It is also sometimes used as a precautionary measure on damp walls above ground.
