When a balcony, walkway or terrace has a saturated or contaminated substrate or features a failing buried membrane, it is not possible to successfully overlay these areas with a new waterproofing and surfacing system. In these instances, it is usually necessary to completely remove the existing substrate before refurbishment can begin, which is not only time consuming and costly but also causes disruption. This doesn't always need to be the case, we have developed a specialist solution which can directly overlay these areas without removal of the existing substrate.
Triflex ProDrain offers a safe, clean solution featuring a self-supporting isolating and venting sheet that enables the subsequent Triflex ProTerra waterproofing and surfacing system to be applied over it. It is ultra fast curing and cold liquid applied, allowing installation to be completed quickly, without the use of hot works, and with minimal impact on users. Available in four unique surface finishes, the completed solution also looks good and allows you to completely tailor the colour, texture and finish of your project.
Ultimate refurbishment solution
With Triflex ProDrain there is no need for the time consuming and costly removal of the existing substrate, even when it is saturated, contaminated or cracked. The installation of the unique self-supporting decoupling membrane enables the subsequent Triflex ProTerra waterproofing and surfacing system to be applied directly on top, and the thin layer build-up has minimal impact on thresholds. A safe, effective refurbishment solution that lasts.
Fast curing and rapid installation
Traditional refurbishments can take weeks to complete and are susceptible to further water ingress when the existing substrate is removed. Fast curing and easy to install, the entire solution can be installed in just a few days, allowing a building to remain occupied during installation, limiting access restrictions and unnecessary disruptions to everyday life.
Cold applied system
There is no risk from hot works during installaltion as all our materials are applied in a totally cold liquid form, curing to create a solution that lasts.
Tough and durable protection
The demands of the walkway, balcony and terrace environment are no issue for Triflex ProDrain. The system is unaffected by ponding water and resistant to chlorides (salts), carbon dioxide ingress, and approved de-icing and cleaning products. Protection that's built to last, with a low lifecycle cost.
Safety and environmental
Our solvent and isocyanate free resin technology has been assessed under BREEAM principles and can contribute to A+ ratings.
