Wind turbines harness the forces of nature to give us clean, renewable energy. In the process, all elements of the tower and its foundation are exposed to the wind causing the entire structure to move.
This movement can result in the formation of cracks in the foundation, allowing moisture to penetrate the structure and potentially leading to longer term damage. Triflex Towersafe is a specially developed solution designed to waterproof the tower, foundation, joints, flanges, nacelles and for specific details including blade root. Other solutions include coatings and filling compounds for both new and for refurbishment. The fully reinforced system can be installed quickly to minimise downtime, and can easily withstand the unique demands of this tough environment.
Triflex Towersafe in action
The specially formulated Triflex Towersafe solution is designed to waterproof all areas of the wind turbine. From the tower and base to the nacelle, Triflex Towersafe can be used to provide long lasting and sustainable protection. Even areas under soil can be reliably waterproofed as the cured membrane is FLL certified as root and rhizome resistant as standard.
Cold applied, fast curing with rapid installation
Rapid curing and easy to install, Triflex Towersafe allows works to be completed in less than a day resulting in shorter downtimes. Installation can be carried out around all year round and the system still cures quickly at temperatures down to -5°C and is rainproof in just 30 minutes. There is also no risk from hot works during installation as all our materials are applied in a totally cold liquid form, curing to create a solution that lasts.
Single process application
Reduce installation costs associated with multi-coat solvent based systems, save significant time on site and eliminate risks from inter-layer adhesion with our simple, single process waterproofing application. Triflex Towersafe has a thixotropic formulation as standard, allowing it to be used on vertical or even inverted surfaces.
Fully reinforced technology
The special polyester fleece reinforcement used in Triflex Towersafe is designed to work with the elastomeric Triflex Towersafe resin to accommodate high levels of movement and cracking within the structure and between different substrates. Proven fully reinforced waterproofing technology that stands the test of time.
Tried and tested
