Industrial ponds and fire-fighting water basins

VB-EPDM membranes for industrial ponds and fire-fighting water basins.

Industrial ponds: For a variety of reasons, municipalities, companies, golf clubs or zoos often decide to install ponds in their grounds. Ponds may offer the architectonic  possibility of giving a design an individual character, or they may serve the purpose of eye-catcher. VB-EPDM membranes are also used in the construction of fire-fighting water basins. The
maintenance-friendly character and the minimal installation time usually mean a low-threshold investment that is well worth the effort.

VB-EPDM membranes play a crucial role in making water basins or ponds watertight. Exposure to UV radiation, varying temperatures and bacteriological influences place extremely high demands on the membranes. It is also essential to check the ground before installing VB-EPDM membranes. If it does not consist of clean sand, we recommend laying down protective sheeting before laying the VB-EPDM membrane. If soil gases are present, then it may be necessary to install a drainage system beneath the VB-EPDM membrane.

VB-EPDM membranes consist of rubber sheeting of the highest European quality. They are created by the bespoke vulcanisation of strips of EPDM sheet and come in a selection of thicknesses. This results in seamless and homogenous VB-EPDM membranes that precisely meet the standards set. Each membrane comes with a corresponding certificate and installation instructions. VB-EPDM rubber has a very favourable environmental impact factor and it is ecologically sound. The environmental effects during its whole life cycle are extremely low.
