Waterproof membrane for Box Gutters and Verandah's

Prevent Leaks with Rhino Linings Spray Applied Waterproof Solutions

There is no real “standard” when it comes to waterproofing, and this can cause headaches for many builders within the industry.  The variety of products, pricing and quality varies enormously, from cheap roll-on products (that is still deemed to meet the requirement) through to professional spray applied polyurethane protective coatings such as Rhino Tuff Stuff.

Peter and his team at Rhino Linings Warrnambool (Chemblast) have been applying Rhino Linings Tuff Stuff for a variety of waterproofing applications, including balcony waterproofing, for over ten years.  Seamless and impervious, the Rhino product has continually performed as expected. 

Though more expensive than competitors, Rhino Linings range of specialised spray applied waterproof coatings are starting to become very popular.  Builders with their warranties do not want to have a failure.  As one customer stated, “We can sleep at night through the entire buildings life knowing the upper level will not leak through to the bottom floor.” 

Experience, preparation and masking takes time, the costs may be higher, however, the durability and long-term results speak for themselves. 

The project: Old Church
This church was purchased and transported to its new location prior to being converted into a family home. 

Rhino Linings TUFF STUFF was applied as a waterproof membrane to the verandah floor providing a seamless finish that tiles or other flooring materials can be added later. 

To complete the project, external box gutters were sealed preventing leaks and extending the life of the gutters.

Balcony Waterproofing With Rhino Linings Waterproof Membranes

Waterproofing Apartment Balcony Floors 

Balcony waterproofing needs to be done right the first time, especially when it comes to apartment building balconies.  Water can and will leak slowly into any crack or crevice and over time will cause significant structural damage.  It can be an expensive exercise having it fixed at a later date.

Experienced builders understand that the quality and performance of a seamless waterproofing membrane is paramount in these types of applications.  It is the reason why Rhino Linings Warrnambool (Chemblast), for over ten years, has been contracted by building project managers to apply Rhino Linings Tuff Stuff for balcony waterproofing applications

Rhino Linings Tuff Stuff provides a seamless, waterproof, monolithic membrane that is durable and will last long into the future.  Builders, tenants and landlords can rest easy at night knowing that water won’t be leaking down to the next level.  

With the addition of a fine aggregate, a slip-resistant finished can be provided - another benefit of using Rhino Tuff Stuff.
Experience, preparation and masking takes time; the costs may be higher, however the durability and long-term results speak for themselves.

“Green Roof” – Rhino Linings Waterproofing Membrane Solution

Waterproof membrane for the rooftop of architecturally designed three-story

This three-story home was built on the side of the hill in Lorne, Victoria, overlooking the Great Ocean Road and Bass Strait. To take advantage of the spectacular views afforded by this hillside residence, the new owners decided to repurpose the home’s rooftop and create a green roof. 

A green roof allows for added space were gardens and entertainment areas can be created for family and guests to enjoy. Another advantage of this type of roof is that it can help reduce heating and cooling costs.

However, architectural plans revealed that with the added weight of soil and landscaped gardens, the extra steel required and engineering costs to support the existing cantilever roof would increase building expenses significantly, a concern for both the homeowner and architect.  Alternative solutions were needed.

The architect who managed the entire design and construction process, “Designers by Nature”, Warrnambool Vic, contacted Peter from Chemblast (Rhino Linings Warrnambool) following the advice given by Rhino Linings Australasia company Engineer, Denis Baker, to discuss the Rhino waterproofing options for their weight saving structure that would completely seal the surface and perform well over the design life of the building.

As seen in the images, the roof was subsequently built out of timber.  This medium was chosen to significantly lower the weight of the cantilever roof, negating the need for steel support posts to hold the roof up. 

Chemblast (Rhino Linings Warrnambool) sprayed the Australian manufactured Rhino Tuff Stuff, completely sealing the roof surface and box gutters.  Rhino Linings TUFF STUFF, a spray applied polyurethane protective coating provides a seamless membrane that is a Class III Wet Area Membrane,  root resistant, uniform in thickness and will not become brittle if exposed to UV or high temperatures. Rhino Tuff Stuff offers long term durability (CSIRO Testing) and its application capabilities are well recognised in the waterproofing industry.
