Basement and Cellar Waterproofing (Tanking)
Safeguard Chemicals SA specialise in basement waterproofing products throughout South Africa.
With ever-rising water tables, the protection of subterranean structures has never been more important. Safeguard offers a variety of products aimed at protecting basements and cellars on both external (positive) and internal (negative) wall surfaces against the effects of damp.
Utilising basement space has become an increasingly popular trend in recent years. More and more new houses are incorporating basements in their design, and old, damp, basements are being up-graded to provide new living space.
Although this trend is partly driven by high property prices in these parts of the world, other factors, such as the natural insulation provided by basements are also important. A basement can provide a quiet space in a noisy city, or can provide wines with the stable temperature environment that they need to mature. Whatever use you decide to put your basement to, however, it is important that is correctly waterproofed.
