Consulting an Engineering
Perfect waterproofing solutions start with precise planning
During the engineering and specification phase, all hydrological, geological and design prerequisites are clarified. ZEMENTOL engineers give advice to designers, architects and structural engineers, contractors and owners to ensure an optimum solution is found, starting with the initial planning steps.
As the planning phase progresses, detailed CAD drawings for the ZEMENTOL® System are compiled. These cover, for example, the positioning of joints, special reinforcements and all service penetrations. The crack-reducing reinforcements are defined together with the structural engineers. ZEMENTOL minimizes the crack-reducing reinforcements, often resulting in major savings in terms of reinforcement steel.
The concrete mix is designed by our own concrete engineers, based on European norms and the appropriate exposure category. For all details defined by the ZEMENTOL drawings and the concrete mix design ZEMENTOL will carry the engineering liability.
