    BS8102: the British Standard for Waterproofing

    BS8102 is the main design guide for structural waterproofing in the UK. Newton System 500 is a maintainable system, so complies with BS8102 requirements. BS8102 also specifies that:

    “a waterproofing specialist should be included as part of the design team so that an integrated waterproofing is created”
    Therefore it is our recommendation that Newton System 500 is installed by a Newton Specialist Basement Contractor (NSBC). For a list of installers in your area please ring 09 527 1829 or e-mail info@newtonwaterproofing.co.uk
