Damp Proofing Barriers: Tanking – Technical Document

In association with Chemical Damp proofing courses, our Technical Document on Damp Proofing Barriers focuses on Tanking – a process of preventing moisture ingress into a structure constructed partially or wholly underground, where water pressure exists.

“Tanking”, in the normal civil engineering sense, is a far more specialised subject than damp-proof barriers associated with damp coursing, and can extend to structures many meters below ground level including tunnels, etc.

This technical document is restricted to consideration of techniques applicable to existing structures.
