Diverse Solutions for Water & Moisture Management
Effective water and moisture management is a multifaceted challenge demanding comprehensive solutions. Understanding the varied nature of this challenge is crucial for implementing strategies that assist in the resilience of structures.
The spectrum of solutions is broad, from exterior interventions like waterproofing to interior strategies such as water management and innovative technologies like hydrophobic foam and seismic seals.
Exterior waterproofing is a proactive strategy that involves applying specialized materials to the external surfaces of a building. The primary goal is to create a barrier that shields the structure from water infiltration and other potentially damaging liquids. By strategically addressing vulnerabilities on the outside, this method acts as a first line of defense, helping prevent moisture from compromising the integrity of the building.
Interior Water Management
Interior water management is a critical aspect of maintaining the structural integrity of commercial properties. This approach involves implementing strategic measures within the building to manage water and moisture effectively.
Interior water management strategies usually include the installation of internal drainage systems. Interior drainage systems, typically complemented by a gravity drain or sump pump, channel and redirect water away from vulnerable areas, inhibiting moisture from permeating into the facility.
Hydrophobic foam emerges as a cutting-edge water and moisture management solution for commercial structures. This advanced material possesses a unique characteristic—it actively repels water and moisture. By creating a water-resistant barrier, hydrophobic foam stands as a formidable defense, safeguarding various areas of a building from the potentially damaging effects of water infiltration.
Seismic seals are crucial in structural water and moisture management, particularly in areas with high-movement joints. Typically held in place by expanding foam, seismic seals are designed to accommodate the movement of structures without compromising their integrity. This makes them indispensable components for the watertight integrity of a building's joints.
The effectiveness of seismic seals in enhancing a building's resilience lies in their unique design and functionality. These seals are adept at conforming to irregularities in joint gaps, allowing for dynamic movement without sacrificing the structural seal.
Encapsulation is an effective moisture control method, providing a comprehensive solution for commercial properties across the US. This technique involves the application of a moisture control barrier, typically a heavy-duty liner, to walls and floors, especially in areas like crawl spaces. The encapsulation process creates a sealed environment, acting as a protective shield against moisture infiltration. By applying this impenetrable barrier, encapsulation forms a necessary line of defense, helping prevent the adverse effects of moisture on the building's structure.
