As a preferred supplier and installer of Allduro products, PWSS typically uses WPA 200, a highly flexible cementitious waterproof membrane.

Prior to application, the surface is prepared by applying a high-grade epoxy primer i.e. WPA 560.

The system is then finished with a top coat of WPA TuffCote, a trafficable membrane that allows light foot traffic, provides slip resistance, and UV protection. WPA TuffCote is available in light grey or slate grey for a natural concrete finish look.Alternative systems such as WPA 230 UV is also available.

PWSS offers several methods of applying waterproof membrane to concrete roof decks, with one of the most common being the application of cementitious waterproofing membrane. All proposed methods comply with AS4654, which covers the requirements for the design and installation of external waterproofing membrane systems applied to roofs, decks, balconies, and planter boxes.

It is important that these external areas are treated to protect the areas underneath and are walkable for light traffic. The membrane must be UV stable to prevent any material degradation over time, as the applied membrane is highly prone to cracking or being less effective without UV stability.

It is crucial to avoid ponding water on roof decks. For the waterproofing system to work, a proper drainage system is necessary. Improper roof drainage systems may expose the applied waterproofing membrane to extra pressure, which could lead to failure over time.

PWSS employs professionally trained technicians who pay excellent attention to detail and possess exceptional product knowledge
