| BELOW GROUND RETAINING WALL SYSTEM

SYSTEM | OVERVIEW

The Fatra retaining wall system provides a cost effective and versatile waterproofing solution for all retaining wall waterproofing requirements.

The Fatrafol 803vs is designed to withstand aggressive water pressure, hydrostatic pressure and creates a radon barrier to prevent the natural gases that are present below ground from entering the building foundations. The Fatrafol 803vs is made with a black scrim below and a top yellow signal layer to enable contractors to easily identify any breaches in the membrane. If the yellow top layer is damaged the black scrim layer below shows through making any defects easy to spot and patch repair prior to back filling being completed.

The Fatrafol retaining wall system is completely hot air fusion welded which doesn't rely on tapes or sealants to prevent water ingress. The membrane can be mechanically fixed or bonded using the relevant Fatrabond contact adhesive and can be installed over almost any substrate such as block walls, Dincel and concrete retaining walls with minimal preparation and does not require any priming to enable the system to operate efficiently.

FATRAFOL 803vs | Yellow/Black PVC Waterproofing Sheet Membrane

The Fatrafol 803vs is a yellow face/black scrim PVC sheet membrane which is resistant to aggressive water pressure and gasses which occur naturally below ground. The Fatrafol 803vs is fully hot air fusion welded along all joints, laps and terminations meaning it is not reliant on adhesives, sealants or tapes to provide its waterproofing integrity.

BACKFILL | Overlaying Finishes

Once the Fatrafol PVC Membrane is fully installed and signed off, installation of protection board is required to protect the PVC membrane system from damage prior to back filling the retaining wall.

SYSTEM | ACCESSORIES

FATRA ARMOUR | PROTECTION MAT

The Fatra Armour protection mat is used as a primary protection layer over the Fatrafol PVC membrane to protect the waterproofing system from damage. The Fatra Armour protection mat is installed over the Fatrafol PVC membrane prior to back filling being completed.

PMMA RESIN |

Fatra PMMA (Poly Methyl Methacrylate) resin is implemented in conjunction with the Fatrafol below ground system for waterproofing complex details present below ground such as pile caps, inlet and outlet valves and similar details. The PMMA resin provides a robust, fast and efficient method of waterproofing specific components that is fully compatible with the Fatrafol below ground waterproofing system.
