John Newton & Co Ltd is the UK's leading INDEPENDENT manufacturer and distributor of Cavity Drainage Membrane (CDM) and related water control & drainage products used for waterproofing and damp proofing applications in newbuild construction, building renovation & refurbishment projects. For internal below ground or earth retaining applications such as basement waterproofing, cellar waterproofing, lining a tunnel or waterproofing an arch use our BBA Certified Newton System 500 incorporating our Newton Drainage Systems. For above ground applications such as damp proofing a damp wall, gable end, barn conversion or damp proofing timber frame building use BBA certified Newton Newlath 2000. For external waterproofing of earth retaining walls use Newton Geodrain. Newton's Slimline Flooring provides a damp proof and waterproof membrane so damp sensitive flooring finishes such as wooden flooring can be rapidly applied even if the underlying building structure is not dry.

Control and remove unwanted water from leaking tunnels, dripping arches, wet basements, flooded cellars & damp vaults to make warm living spaces or areas suitable for dry storage. In the basement waterproofing example pictured above the control of damp was vital to ensure safe storage of the musical instruments.

Company Background:

John Newton & Co Ltd, is a long established privately owned company and the oldest established company in this field of the building industry. We pioneered the Air Gap method of damp proofing in 1931 with the introduction to the UK of "NEWTONITE" membrane. In 1984 Christopher Newton invented and developed a meshed membrane called Newlath to receive plaster or render which has led to the current generation of high density studded polypropylene membranes which we supply today and sold under our registered trade name Newlath 2000 and the Newton 500 family of membranes used in our Newton System 500 underground waterproofing system.
