1. Substrate
  2. Slope screed (>1 / max. 5%)
  3. Double layer waterproofing system, made of:
    a) first layer: NOVATER 4 mm, applied by torching, semi-bonded on the horizontal surface and totally bonded on the perimeter; laying of the second layer membrane will be preceded by the application of a strip of membrane (NOVATER 4 mm) having 30 cm width, welded for 10 cm both on the flat and on the vertical (therefore leaving free the corner);
    b) second layer: NOVATER 4 mm applied by torching in total adherence to the first one and on the verticals, up to a height of 20 cm above flooring level.
    For double layer systems, it is always advisable to lay the cap sheet in longitudinal direction respect to the base sheet, arranging the overlaps by having the ones of the upper layer in the middle of the first layer sheets. The sheets must be laid as well in such way that head overlap are staggered in longitudinal direction by at least 100 cm.The joints must be made by torching, overlapping the membranes (laid as “tiles”, in the direction of the slope, to favour the down flow of the water), for at least 8 cm in the case of the side and 12 cm for the head (15 cm in case of mineralised membranes). Vertical walls and other protruding structures must be waterproofed with the same type of membrane, possibly mineralised.
  4. Separation layer (optional), 0.2 mm thick polyethylene film.
  5. Sand layer (5 cm thickness)
  6. Prefabricated elements, loose laid on the sand layer

In case of special situations characterised by significant dynamic loads and/or strong thermal cycles, for the double layer system, as an alternative, a NOVAGUM-P 4 mm elastomeric membrane can be used in the first layer.It is always advisable to protect the waterproofing layer above the level of the floor (on the verticals) with a layer of cementitious mortar, reinforced with light metallic mesh.
