ProTen are proud to be approved designers and installers of Delta products including their membranes. If you have a project and want to take advantage of this product innovation then ProTen Services can assist you.
Delta have certainly put the product through its paces as you can see from their videos.
Delta’s new innovative fire-retardant MS 500 membrane gives a unique opportunity to the structural waterproofing sector for Type C systems to be used in reducing the spread of fire or where installation has not previously been possible for fire safety reasons.
Delta’s new fire-retardant Type C Cavity Drainage System provides architectural freedom and allows systems to be used in not only deep basements but where national Building Regulations Euroclass B or C are required, meeting building requirements of today, but also that of tomorrow.
Delta MS 500 Fire offers a B-S2, d0 Euroclass fire rating (EN 13501-1:2018) whilst maintaining its strength, durability, functionality and workability.
The first and most important element of a Type C membrane is keeping structures dry. Water ingress will potentially result in a corrosive environment, with structures having a reduced life service. Delta MS 500 Fire Retardant has been manufactured using DELTASAFE, compared to the traditional MS 500 membranes.
In terms of appearance, Delta MS 500 Fire Retardant has the same physical properties to MS 500, a membrane designed from High-Density Polyethylene with 8mm stud.
If your waterproofing has a need for additional fire safety then please contact us and we will be happy to assist.
