Newton CDM System – Cavity Drain Membrane Type C Waterproofing
Cavity Drain Membrane Type C Waterproofing
The Newton CDM System is a comprehensive Type C waterproofing system and will usually be suggested as one of the forms of waterproofing where a completely dry internal environment is required.
This maintainable basement waterproofing solution is ideal for both new-build basements and refurbishment projects. The system comprises of BBA approved cavity drain membranes, drainage conduits, sump chambers, pumps, and associated control and telemetry systems.
Type C Waterproofing
British Standard 8102:2022 defines Type C waterproofing as “drained protection” where water leaking through the structure is accepted into voids created by cavity drain membranes that are strategically placed to the inside of the structure, depressurising the incoming water before safely removing it from the property.
The Newton CDM System combines their decades of basement waterproofing experience with industry-leading products. It also includes a range of BBA certified cavity drain membranes, and is also the only waterproofing system that is certified to the BES 6001 standard for responsible sourcing. Coupled with the bespoke sump and pump configurations, backup systems, telemetry, and ancillary options, the CDM System is the most reliable and maintainable waterproofing solution for any below ground space.

British Standard 8102:2022 recommends combining two or more Types of waterproofing where:
-the assessed risks are deemed to be high;
-the consequences of failure to achieve the required internal environment are deemed too high; or
-the required grade of waterproofing performance is Grade 3
The Newton CDM System can therefore be combined with their Type A Newton HydroBond System or Newton HydroSeal System, and/or their Type B Newton HydroTank System. Professional waterproofing designers should always consider using more than one type of waterproofing to provide enhanced protection to the structure and achieve the necessary environmental grade.
