BBA Certification for Tri-Cream!

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

To satisfy the growing encouragement in the industry for the specification of BBA approved products and systems, Triton’s Tri-Cream, a unique silicone emulsion cream for the control of rising dampness, has been awarded BBA certification.

The new certification strengthens Triton’s growing range of BBA approved products, and means that Triton’s network of approved contractors can now offer a fully BBA approved system for damp proofing and replastering when Tri-Cream is used alongside BBA certified Trimix 1.

Tri-Cream can be used in all types of masonry and is delivered by hand pressure from a simple displacement pump and injector lance into a series of holes drilled into the mortar course.  Quick and clean to install, this low hazard product is virtually odourless and there is no need to clean pumps between jobs.

A green roof at GCHQ

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Here’s a site receiving a lot of attention at the moment.  But did you know that the famous GCHQ’s ‘doughnut’ building features a green roof in its core which protects the main computer hall below the ground? Triton supplied 3,000 M2 of Platon DE25 membrane to form a green roof at ground level in the centre of the complex. Frosts Landscape Construction of Milton Keynes carried out the installation which included a water drainage layer, filter fabric and polystyrene blocks to form a gently contoured shape.  The DE25 was then loose laid to form a water storage and drainage element to the ‘roof’. A further filter layer was then installed before the area was covered with compost and turfed and planted. Platon DE25 is designed to combine water drainage and storage in green roofs and to maintain long term planting.

Triton offers a RIBA approved CPD seminar on green roof construction –  read more about green roofs here.
