Reliable, stable and durable PLASTFOIL® polymer waterproofing is actively used in constructing tunnels and underground subway stations.
During the construction of any underground structure, and in particular, such a strategically important facility as a metro, one of the key factors for successful long-term and maintenance-free operation is the reliability of the waterproofing system.
Waterproof coating tunnels and underground stations is, in extreme conditions, under high groundwater pressure, and the structure itself is exposed to significant stress caused by the regular train movement.
Repairing existing underground structures is very complex and expensive, and in some cases – it is even impossible. Therefore, vital systems of the metro, such as, waterproofing, use a multi-level protection from damage during construction, including:
In order to ensure high quality and long-term maintenance, the waterproofing of underground structures is installed by authorized contractors - specially trained and approved by experts from the PENOPLEX Company.
