Tanking systems effectively prevent water reaching a particular surface. A waterproof membrane is applied to a floor before vinyl or ceramic flooring is fitted, giving the floor an added safety barrier against any liquid.
Tanking membrane is generally used in shower rooms, wet room, kitchens, laundry rooms and utility rooms. It is applied to dry sub floors to protect against water.
If vinyl or ceramic flooring gets damaged and there is no tanking membrane, water can penetrate the subfloor and cause the floor covering to lift.
Tanking membrane acts as a waterproof barrier against moisture. It is installed to dry subfloors before vinyl or ceramic flooring is fitted. Once the flooring is complete, the tanking membrane prevents water from reaching the subfloor, protecting it and ensuring a longer life.
The damp proofing quality makes tanking systems essential in areas where water is common, including wet rooms and utility rooms.
We have been fitting waterproof membranes to subfloors for over 25 years. We work with quality products and our professional team are able to give advice on installing waterproof membrane and the floor prep needed.
