Basements built since 1980


The floating house

Glatthaar's unique floating demonstration unit

At glatthaar's Schramberg / Waldmössingen facility, you will find its unique floating house.[nbsp

Thanks to the patented 100% waterproof AquaSafe® basement system, the 313-tonne building made of concrete is able to float in a pool of water almost three meters deep. Through illustrative materials and basement models, visitors are able to get an understanding of how a basement made of precast concrete has been able to remain permanently waterproof for over a decade.
