SEALING YOUR WALLS

Before installing any flood gates, vent protection or other devices, we advise that all exposed masonry be sealed with Alocit Aquacoat. From the damp proof course to the chosen flood-proofing level (usually one metre above ground level) all surfaces should be sealed to prevent water entering brick work, render or concrete, including frames and other building components.

Alocit Aquacoat can be applied to wet or dry surfaces using a hand brush or roller with minimal surface preparation. For more details see the Technical Data Sheet . A 1.5 kg pack will seal up to nine square metres.


As you are sealing the wall, look out for pipe penetrations and gaps in brickwork. Remedy any potential ingress points using a suitable sealant or mortar making sure to seal over repair after it is completed.

Note the position of air vents, these must be fitted with ingress protection to prevent water entering above or below the internal floor.

Once you have sealed the external walls you can install the flood protection fittings. Go to next page.
