  • Brochure shows how Delta Terraxx takes the pressure

    Brochure shows how Delta Terraxx takes the pressure

    Efficient protection and drainage for basements and flat roofs is offered by the high density polyethylene Terraxx range from Delta Membrane Systems, which is featured in a new brochure.

    The brochure shows how the two-ply sheet is a highly efficient protection and drainage system, and offers an ‘all-round’ solution for horizontal and vertical applications on compression-resistant substrates.

    With its fused-on polypropylene geotextile and integrated self-sealing edge, the product offers the functions of a protection, filtration and seepage layer making it particularly suitable for herbaceous roofs – intensively planted roofs which, being thickly covered with soil, do not need an extra water reservoir, but do need high drainage capacity.

    Details of how the product can be employed in high traffic areas are also given. Laid out on top of the waterproofing, it forms a robust protection and drainage layer. It may be covered with a layer of sand or chippings which, in turn, may be topped with walkable pavement of stones or flags.

    Reliable protection for basement walls is a further benefit offered by Terraxx, and this application is also covered in the brochure, along with full specifications for the Delta Terraxx product and a list of accessories.

  • Timloc launches new dry fix roofline and above solutions

    Timloc launches new dry fix roofline and above solutions

    Timloc has extended its roofline and above product range with four new universal dry fix roof systems for new build and refurbishment projects. The launches include a new Dry Fix Verge system for profiled roof tiles and a Dry Fix Continuous Verge solution for slate and flat tiles, as well as convenient 6m Dry Fix Ventilated Ridge and Hip installation packs.

    These dry fix systems incorporate some great features to deliver fast, straightforward and reliable installations. These include extended fixing locators, allowance of guttering and a simple, fast eaves closer starter process. Timloc dry fix systems present consistently smart and virtually maintenance free finishes and can be fitted in wet and cold weather conditions.

    Timloc’s dry fix systems involve the mechanical fixing of roof verge, ridge and hip tiles without the traditional use of wet mortar bedding alone, which is often unreliable as it deteriorates over time and can be adversely affected by rain and wind.

    All the new Timloc dry fix products offer universal design appeal and project flexibility as they are compatible with the majority of today’s roof, ridge and hip tiles and slates and are suitable for most roof pitch types from 15-55 degrees.
