Home > Companies > Triflex (UK) Ltd > BBS - Walkway, Balcony and Terrace Waterproofing System

A BBA-certified, fast-curing, fully reinforced waterproofing system for use beneath coverings and in buried and inverted build-ups for walkways, balconies and terraces. The totally cold-applied, solvent-free, elastomeric system was developed to allow more choice in design by allowing alternative and traditional coverings, with or without insulation, to be incorporated above the waterproofing layer.

The system incorporates an ETA-certified waterproofing membrane, and is available in standard and heavy-duty variants.

Features and benefits:

  • Fully reinforced waterproofing membrane: Unique technology provides the system with exceptional tensile strength and long-term resistance to regular and unforeseen movement, cracking and flexural fatigue. The reinforced membrane is BBA-certified, and ETA-certified under ETAG 005.
  • Long-term protection: The seamless system is resistant to standing and ponding water (hydrolysis), and is designed for buried applications including with cementitious overburden.
  • Substrate compatibility – including asphalt: The system is compatible with virtually all existing substrates. It has a proven track record in overlaying failed asphalt, avoiding the risks, costs and disruption associated with asphalt removal and reinstatement.
  • Cold applied and rapid curing – even at low temperatures: No risks from hot works and exceptionally rapid cure times minimize access restrictions. All year-round installation with minimum risk – minimal extension of cure times when applied at 0°C and cures below 0°C.

Applications:

Walkways, balconies and terraces with a trafficable overburden.
