Overview

CE certified

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. To protect the long term integrity of the structure, and to provide a safe and secure environment for users it is essential that a robust waterproofing and surfacing system is used.

Providing a combination of heavy duty, highly durable surfacing on the treads with proprietary or resin based edge nosings, Triflex StairCoat is the answer, offering a 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.

System highlights

Dynamic crack bridging, locally reinforced waterproofing

Even high risk areas pose no problem for this hard wearing solution, as the system incorporates a fully reinforced waterproofing membrane locally to accommodate movement within the structure.

Cold applied system

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 majority of system variants still cure quickly at temperatures down to 0°C.

Asphalt overlay

Many stairs and stairwells have historically been waterproofed using asphalt which over time will fail. With more than 30 years' experience, Triflex StairCoat 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.

Versatile design

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.

StairCoat Nosing Examples

Nosings

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.

Creative Design

Create your very own personalised design for your balcony or terrace with Triflex Creative Design! At the heart of the system is a sheet which is affixed to the prepared floor and coloured. The sheet is then removed to reveal your surface design. From the classic tile pattern in various formats through to company and club logos or names.

Triflex Creative Design can be combined with classic finish colours, Triflex MicroChips and also Triflex Colour Design, so you have a multitude of creative options for coating your balcony floor.
