External stairs and stairwells are vulnerable to water, mechanical and chemical damage as they are not only open to the elements but are also susceptible to added downforce pressure from foot traffic, particularly at nosings. It is essential that these areas when over occupied spaces are reliably waterproofed and surfaced with a robust system to protect the integrity of the structure and contents beneath and to provide a safe and secure environment for users.
Featuring a combination of reliable waterproofing, highly durable surfacing on the treads and proprietary or resin based edge nosings, Triflex StairCoat Reinforced offers the perfect long term protective solution. The system 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.
Dynamic crack bridging, fully reinforced, cold applied system
Triflex lead from the front. Featuring unique resins with enhanced elastomeric properties and high tensile strength fleece reinforcement, we deliver a totally waterproof solution that can accommodate movement and cracking within a structure. There is 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.
Fast curing with rapid installation
Rapid curing and easy to install, Triflex allows buildings to remain occupied during installation, limiting access restrictions and unnecessary disruptions to everyday life. Installation can be carried out all year round and the system still cures quickly at temperatures down to 0°C.
Many stairs and stairwells have historically been waterproofed using asphalt which over time will fail. With more than 30 years' experience, Triflex StairCoat Reinforced is the ideal solution for directly overlaying failing asphalt. In fact, whatever the substrate, we can provide a quick, easy and reliable overlay solution.
Safety and environmental
The solvent and isocyanate free resin technology has been assessed under BREEAM principles and can contribute to A+ ratings. The levels of skid resistance of a number of the finish variants make these particularly suitable for high risk, frequently trafficked areas.
Available in either Quartz Design or Chips Design these system variants offer different textures and surface finishes, combined with over 50 standard colours the system can be tailored to meet aesthetic and project needs.

Triflex nosings are available in both resin and fabricated form and provide additional safety to a stair or stairway. By installing nosings onto the nose of each step, they help to clearly define the edge of the steps reducing the risk of falls, while protecting the edges further from potential wear and tear from heavy traffic.
