Durability and Installation time on site are two of the most important considerations for social housing procurement and maintenance managers when it comes to retro-fit or new bathroom projects. To provide specifiers with a high quality showering range which is also designed to minimise set up time on site, Triton, The Great British Shower Company, has launched the Dene Mixer range.

Practical Design

New for 2016, Triton’s Dene Mixer showers offer a choice of options with all the necessary fittings to complete the job. The range consists of a bath shower mixer, sequential mixer, concentric mixer, bar diverter and three TMV2 bar mixers options – Hi-Flo, Eco and Cool Touch. All would particularly appeal to Housing Associations, as they provide a solution for a variety of requirements and user needs. The collection has a contemporary all-chrome finish with high quality metal handles, perfect for new and replacement property programmes. Furthermore, each shower is WRAS approved certifying its compliance with Water Fitting Regulations.

Ease of installation

One of the key benefits of the Dene Mixer range is that the showers can be installed quickly and efficiently ensuring installation teams and maintenance managers can undertake a job swiftly and effectively whilst achieving a high quality finish.

The Dene Bar mixers are specifically designed with installation in mind as they are supplied as standard with a pipe spacer to ensure pipes are spaced correctly and then cut to the correct length ready to fit the Fast-Fit surface brackets with Push-Fit pipe connectors that are quicker and easier to install than compression fittings.

Powerful Performance

Understanding that versatility is key for an efficient maintenance programme, each of the Dene bar mixer showers works on all water systems, including gravity fed whilst still offering great performance for the end user. The high performance bar mixer shower is available in Hi-Flo and Eco options. The Hi-Flo TMV2 bar mixer shower provides generous flow rates with 5 l/min at 0.1 bar (18l/min at 1.0 bar) offering a strong and invigorating water flow, even on gravity systems. By comparison, the Eco TMV2 bar mixer model is the ideal choice for new build projects as the water flow is capped at 6 l/min, making it a desirable unit on account of the relatively low associated running costs while assisting in compliance with Building Regulations and the Home Quality Mark (HQM).

The Dene TMV2 Cool Touch bar mixer offers the same easy installation and safety features as the standard bar mixer options. Plus, the cool touch function ensures that the body of the shower remains cool to touch at all times as the bar mixer draws cold water across the valve for extra peace of mind for residents who require additional care.

The Dene Mixer collection is set to prove extremely popular for social housing procurement and maintenance teams alike due to the versatility, durability and installation benefits it offers. Each model in the Dene collection is covered by a full five year parts and labour guarantee, with Triton’s national team of engineers on standby if needed. The new Triton Dene Bar Mixer is priced from £85 (manufacturer’s list price).

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.
