Cavity drain membranes provide an alternative to conventional cementitious tanking systems, which work by holding the water back. Cavity drain membranes work on the principle of allowing water to continue to penetrate the structure but control it in the air gap and divert it to a suitable drainage point. They do not allow pressure to build up against the internal construction and the air gap behind the membrane allows the structure to breathe and to some extent to dry out. The membranes are lose laid on floors and fixed to walls using special plugs and sealing materials, with little or no preparation required to the substrate. Once the membrane has been fitted, wall surfaces can be dry lined or plastered directly and floors can be screeded or a floating dry board system installed.

Typical areas of use:
  • Barn conversions
  • Existing basement waterproofing
  • Cellar conversions
  • Structural waterproofing
  • Retrofit
  • New Build
  • Damp proof membranes
  • Gas barriers

  • BBA approved
  • 5mm PP cavity drain membrane
  • fast track solution for walls or floors
  • suitable for use above or below ground
  • impermeable to water, gas and water vapour

Platon Multi can be dry lined on walls, screeded, or finished with a dry board system on floors. Particularly suitable for floors in industrial buildings, as it will transfer loading through screed layers to the underlying concrete floor. Allows contaminated floors to be upgraded.

Platon Multi can be used in conjunction with other Platon membranes and the Triton Aqua Channel and Pump system.

Waterproofing Systems - Cavity Drain Membranes picture

Waterproofing Systems - Cavity Drain Membranes picture

Waterproofing Systems - Cavity Drain Membranes picture

  • No need to wait for concrete slab to dry
  • Offers 3 times more water vapour resistance than film membranes
  • Fast, single application
  • Suitable for use under all wood and laminate floors including glue-free systems

Platon Stop provides an effective, single application damp proof underlay for wood and laminate floors laid on concrete. It's equally effective for renovation or new build projects and the tough polypropylene membrane can be laid directly onto a new concrete slab as soon as it is dry enough to walk on. With three times the water vapour resistance than film membranes, it eliminates the need to install a foam underlay. Construction height is only 2.5mm.

Depending upon the moisture content of the floor, Platon Stop is either fixed with damp resistant adhesive tape or a butyl rubber strip. The wooden flooring material can then be installed immediately.

Technical Data:
Roll size:1.25 x 15m x 2.0mm
2.05 x 2.0m x 2.0mm
Construction height:approx. 2.5mm
Raw material:PP (polypropylene)
Colour:Blue
Material thickness:0.5mm
Weight:450g/m2
Water vapour resistance:1500 m2.s.GPa/kg, or 300 m equivalent air layer
Impact sound deadening:approx. 17dB (with 14 mm parquet)
approx. 19dB (with 7mm laminate)
Shock cushioning:approx. 20% (DIN 18032 part 2)
Thermal conductivity:approx. 0.22 W/m.K
Flammability:B2 (DIN 4102)
