Piled Retaining Walls
Safeguard Basement System 3
In most cases piled retaining walls do not provide adequate resistance to water in their own right so a waterproofing system will need to be applied on top.
Depending on the type of piles used, reinforced concrete or sprayed reinforced concrete will need to be applied on top of the piles to consolidate them and provide a suitable surface for the waterproofing system.
The waterproofing system used could be a cavity drainage system (Oldroyd Xv 20), a crystalline active water-proofer (Drybase Crystalline Active Tanking Slurry), or preferably a combination of the two.
- Combined protection (BS 8102:2022 6.2.2).
- Drybase Crystalline Active Tanking Slurry applied to shotcrete and concrete slab provides primary water resistance.
- Oldroyd Xv 20 provides maintainable secondary protection.
