TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - INTERNAL WATERPROOFING APPLICATION

Keywords: drainage, water proofing, Conservation Systems

Internal tanking is considered to be a negative side waterproofing system.

Although TCS will always choose the best combined system of all our product range to ensure a completely successfully designed water proofing system in most instances we will recommend a cavity drained membrane system complete with associated drainage either gravity or pump driven.

Battery Back up System is also available where power cuts may be a problem.

TCS always work to BSS8102(1990) when designing internal waterproofing systems as this BS document states that for those seeking the maximum assurance against failure a CAVITY DRAINAGE MEMBRANE SYSTEM is the best choice.

All TCS cavity drain membranes are designed to allow water to percolate behind the drainage layer to a point where it will be either pumped out or removed by gravity.

A Cavity drainage system does not allow hydrostatic pressure to build up and if water does ingress we design a comprehensive pattern of drainage channels and sumps with twin or more pump systems installed to pump water ingress to an external discharge point.

We always install a remote alarm system to ensure that in the event of pump failure the client is aware.

We have various stud depths which create the drainage void to choose from. 4mm up to 20mm depths of cavity are achievable on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

We can install 2 types of Plaster direct membrane – Plaster Base and Plaster Mesh. Plasterboard or other types of board can be dot and dabbed to this material. All the membrane products we use are also methane and radon barriers.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - GREEN ROOFS AND ROOF GARDENS

TCS can create a waterproof system with drainage and storage of moisture all included in a controlled system that provides a root barrier and filtration to ensure no silting occurs. In today?s society green roofs both pitched and horizontal are becoming increasingly popular with garden designers, architects and the general public. Finally here is a view of a pitched roof and a more unusual tennis court in France.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - DAMP PROOFING & TIMBER TREATMENTS

At Triton Conservation Systems we have been involved in remedial damp and timber works for many years and can offer probably the most comprehensive range of Damp proofing systems and Timber Treatments that are currently available. TCS are able to accurately assess the amount of moisture in masonry and timber by the use of either Moisture meters and/or Calcium Carbide Speedy Meter tests.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - FLOORING VAPOUR PROOF MEMBRANES

Again a solvent free, two part epoxy resin coating, typically used as a surface damp proof membrane and a water vapour suppressant which is well suited for use as a water and water proof barrier, beneath raised access floors, in plant rooms and bunded areas.

TRITON CONSERVATION SYSTEMS - CONDENSATION PROBLEMS

Many properties suffer with condensation so we have collated a few tips on how to avoid the problem If these do not work then we can offer the following products to help eradicate the smells and staining that is associated with condensation. Positive air Pressure units create continual air movement which does not allow moisture laiden air to stay still long enough for the moisture to convert from vapour back to liquid.
