Triton has published a new website dedicated to its new range of ground gas protection systems. The site is designed to help construction professionals fulfill the guidelines set out in the recently revised Code of Practice BS 8485: 2015, which explains how to prevent the entry of carbon dioxide and methane into new buildings, and which has been substantially expanded and revised to reflect changes in good practice and to reference recent guidelines produced by CIRIA and BRE.
The new site introduces all Triton’s new gas protection products and includes liquid applied and sheet membrane systems. New Triton TGS-GM500 is a sheet membrane designed to prohibit the ingress of Carbon Dioxide, Methane and Radon. Where a barrier against explosive Hydrocardon gas is also required, new TGS-HCM1000 should be specified. Both membranes are highly puncture resistant and are designed to provide protection for the life of the building.
New TWS-EX100GM provides a solution when protection against ground gas as well as water/water vapour is required. This self-adhesive membrane is designed to provide protection against Methane and Radon as well fulfilling the requirements of Type A waterproofing as defined in BS 8102: 2009.
Where a liquid applied system is more appropriate, Triton’s established TT Vapour Membrane is available for retro-application as a waterproof and gas-proof membrane to concrete, masonry and brick substrates or as an alternative to sheet membranes in new construction.
A full range of ancillary products including fans, sumps, primers, tapes and components for sealing service entries is also available, as is training for specifiers and installers, and full back up and technical support. From the new site, there are links to technical data sheets, NBS specification clauses and detail drawings.
