Whether you’re trying to transform residential balconies, commercial office spaces, or a high-rise hotel, LSC has the go-to solutions consistently specified by industry professionals. Let's dive in and take a closer look at the waterproofing systems showcased during the event.

AL (Acrylic Lath) System: This industry-leading Class "A" fire-resistant system excels in UV resistance, durability, sound reduction, and freeze-thaw cycle resistance. Ideal for balcony decks, landings, stairways, and high-traffic areas, the system involves a series of cementitious applications bonded together with a specially formulated acrylic emulsion and sealed with a 100% acrylic top coat.

AL (Acrylic Lath) Flex System: Designed for construction areas with extra movement, the AL Flex system combines flexibility, durability, low maintenance and cost all in one. It includes fiberglass mat and a highly flexible waterproofing resin, providing a Class “A” one-hour fire rating and meeting ICC building codes. This system is not only reliable but also ensures the safety of your structures.

The AMAC (Acrylic + Metal Combination) System: This metal lath and reinforcement system is perfect for decks with high winds and other high-traffic surfaces. AMAC is specially formulated with acrylic emulsions and waterproofing resins for strength and flexibility. This system can be applied over old deck systems to rehabilitate problem surfaces.

FM (Fiberglass Mat) System: This single-component all-acrylic coating system, designed for elevated concrete and plywood walking decks, incorporates fiberglass mat and four powerful acrylic coatings is an economical system built for low pedestrian areas. This system is flexible, easy to repair and requires minimal maintenance for a long-lasting life.
