Down with Damp! The Baseline 8 Membrane Kit

Greengate's, your local builder's merchant, supply an extensive selection of solutions to one of the most damaging structural defects: damp. From specialised damp proof paints to tanking slurry and dry mesh solutions, our range encompasses everything you need to make sure any structure remains dry and protected. One of these damp solutions is the ever-popular Baseline 8 Membrane Kit.

When basement conversion began to become more popular, many believed that it was just the latest in a long line of building trends. Over the past few years, this has been proven to be far from the truth, with more and more people extending their properties in a downward direction. Basement conversion offers a simple, cost-effective way to dramatically increase living and working space but, like any construction project, must be carried out by profes­si­onals using materials and equipment of impeccable quality.

As well as the increasing financial value of land and property prices, the increase in basement conversions has been driven by improved access to high-performance basement water­pro­ofing materials. One such material is Baseline 8 water­pro­ofing membrane, which is available as part of a compre­hen­sive kit from Greengate's.

Baseline 8 is an efficient cavity drain membrane that allows for the attachment of timber-frame studs to its front; this, in turn, allows all required services to run safely between the studs and the membrane. The sections of the membrane are connected using plugs and rubber waterproof tapes and seals, all of which are included in the Baseline 8 Membrane Kit.

Find out all of the relevant details about Baseline 8, along with our other damp proofing solutions, on our website and do not hesitate to get in touch with the expert Greengate's team if you need any advice or technical support.
