Triton announces 2017 Training Course dates

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Triton has announced the 2017 dates for its popular courses aimed at professionals involved in the installation of waterproofing systems and damp proofing works.  There are also two new courses in the Triton programme next year on Ground Gas Protection and Pumps & Drainage.

The Ground Gas Protection course provides an introduction to ground gases, what they are and where they are found. It covers the relevant standards and associated guidance documents – BS8485:2015, CIRIA 735, 748 and BRE 211. The course also covers site investigation and design of gas protection measures along with an introduction to Triton’s comprehensive range of gas protection products.

The new Pumps & Drainage course has been designed for all involved with the installation of Type C cavity drain systems where pumps and drainage are a critical part of the waterpoofing design. Although this subject is covered in brief in the Type C training course, this new course goes into the subject in more depth, to cover drainage design, selection of pumps, calculating the number and size of pumps required, impact of friction loss, installation of pump systems and commissioning and maintenance.

Courses last one full day and take place at Triton’s head office near Dartford, Kent. They should be booked  using the downloadable training course booking form here Each course takes place throughout 2017 and dates are set out on the booking form.

Further details about all courses offered by Triton can be found on the website.

Another RIBA approved CPD seminar from Triton – Type B Waterproofing

Monday, June 17th, 2013

Triton’s latest RIBA approved CPD seminar focuses on structurally integral type B concrete waterproofing as defined in BS 8102, the Code of Practice for protecting below ground structures from water from the ground.

Concrete made watertight by Triton's TT Super Admix - a Type B waterproofing system

The new seminar covers design philosphy, site evaluation and risk assessment, and then goes on to look at the systems offering Type B protection in more detail, such as in depth crystalline concrete waterproofing admixtures and pre-formed waterstops.  More information about the Type B systems supplied by Triton can be found here on the main website.

The presentation also covers remedial measures, all relevant standards and regulations and a couple of Triton’s recent case studies. Reference is also made to Triton’s Type B system components which are available as BIM (Building Information Modelling) objects and downloadable from the NBS National BIM Library.

DATA PROTECTION BY TRI-SEAL!

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

Tri-Seal, Triton’s liquid applied damproofing and waterproofing system, was specified as a guaranteed method of waterproofing to protect the servers in two major new data centres.

The servers will be located at ground floor level within the converted facilities. A total of 19,500m2 of Tri-Seal has been applied as a bunded floor finish over the concrete floor slabs constructed at first floor level.

All concrete surfaces were cleaned, ensuring all joints and cracks had been filled with Triton Fillet Seal. Triton Fillet Seal was also used at the junction between the floor slab and the bund walls.

Following preparation of the surface Tri-Seal was applied in a two coat application at a rate of 4m2/kg for the first coat and 5m2/kg for the second coat giving a total film thickness of 400 microns. The coverage rate of the first coat can vary from the above depending on the porosity of the surface to which is applied. Tri-Seal can be recoated approximately six to eight hours after the first coat application and is touch dry in approximately four to six hours. It is fully cured after seven days.

Where Tri-Seal is applied to bunded areas beneath raised access floors to prevent downward moisture ingress, drainage access points are either incorporated into the floor or the water is retained until it can be pumped out.

Tri-Seal is a solvent free, two part epoxy resin formulation, which can be used in a variety of applications.  In addition to application in bunded situations, it is also suitable for application on damp surfaces such as sand/cement and concrete floors subject to rising damp or containing residual construction moisture. The cured product provides a flexible, but tough barrier suitable for foot or light wheeled traffic.  It can be screeded or blinded with course aggregate as a key for renders, bonded screeds or tiles or with fine aggregate as a slip resistant finish.
