LiquiTEC Balcony, Walkway and Terrace System

The Bauder LiquiTEC Balcony, Walkway and Terrace System was developed to provide the optimum combination of aesthetic and functional requirements; designed to be slip resistant and hard wearing they can also be used for stairs and stairwells.

Cold application and exceptionally fast cure times are a distinct advantage when carrying out work on areas continuously in use by the building's occupants, inconvenience is kept to a minimum.


When to specify...

The system is suitable for application over almost all structural substrates commonly used for balcony, walkway and terrace construction and in refurbishment can be applied directly to asphalt and most other waterproofing and surfacing products typically found on existing structures. This avoids the unnecessary expense, risk and disruption of removing existing waterproofing and minimises installation time on site.

 

 
1 LiquiFINISH Fast curing final coat, used to seal and bind the quartz wearing course.
LiquiPAVE RF Filler component for balcony, walkway and terrace surfacing.
3 LiquiBALKON Fast curing resin for use on the main area waterproofing for balconies, walkways and terraces.

  • BBA Certificate number 14/5152 LiquiTEC Balcony, Walkway and Terrace System.
  • Our LiquiTEC Warm Roof System and LiquiBALKON system hold ENV1187 fire classification BROOF (t4) and are verified by the BBA as ‘unrestricted’ and suitable for use on any part of a roof or terrace. An unreinforced balcony system with LiquiPAVE RF has been tested to EN ISO 11925-2 and 9239-1 and satisfied the criteria for Euroclass Bfl-S1 according to EN 13501-1.
  • Bauder LiquiTEC meets FLL guidelines, which is the benchmark test for root resistance in Europe.
 

Environmental credentials

  • Manufactured under ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.
  • All cold applied liquid products are solvent, isocyanate and halogen free.
  • BRE Green Guide ‘A+’ generic rating, element number 1212530006 when used with warm roof insulation on a profiled steel deck with steel supports.
  • BRE Green Guide ‘C’ generic rating, element number 1212530060 when used with pre-cast concrete hollow slab with screed, inverted insulation with pebble ballast.
  • EDP certification for LiquiTEC products: EPD-DBC-20130101-IBE1-EN. 
  • EDP certification for PU insulation - aluminium facing: EPD-IVP-20140207-IBE1-EN.
  • Insulation within a Warm Roof Construction: the BauderPIR insulation used within the warm roof construction of a cold applied waterproofing system has extremely high thermal efficiency and is CFC and HCFC free. It has zero ODP and a Global Warming Potential of less than 5Kg CO2 - Eq/Kg. As part of our PIR insulation manufacturing process, offcuts and waste are readily recycled and used in the production of hand cleansers and decking materials. The embodied energy of our rigid polyurethane PIR insulation accounts for as little as 4% of the energy the board can save during its serviceable life. With buildings accounting for 50% of the energy consumption in Europe, the inclusion of insulation when installing new or refurbished roofs plays a significant part in reducing CO2 emissions.
 

Installation and maintenance

The quality and experience of the installing operative is paramount to ensuring a successful project. Bauder approved contractors are the only people fully trained and certified to install our products. They provide the necessary experience that our exceptional guarantee demands. 

In applications where it is preferable to install a hard landscaped surface such as paving slabs, promenade tiles or timber decking, or whenever it is necessary to incorporate insulation, a 'buried' version of the system is also available. A finer quartz grade is available for projects requiring a smoother surface finish.
