Triangle Fluid Controls Ltd. is Canada’s leading manufacturer of premium grade industrial gaskets and has been providing complete sealing solutions (under its Durlon® brand name) to a global customer base since 2007. The company first contacted Bel-Con Design-Builders in 2012 for the construction of a 21,000 square foot global headquarters in Belleville, Ontario. Triangle Fluid purchased land from the City of Belleville in their industrial park and the new facility was designed to allow for future growth. The original building included Butler’s Widespan framing system complete with an Expandable Endwall, Shadowall pre-finished siding and an MR-24 standing seam roof.
The addition to Triangle’s facility utilized Butler’s Widespan structural framing system. The siding was a combination of Shadowall and e-Shadowall to meet the latest Ontario Building Code requirements and were a perfect match for the existing building. The roof utilized Butler’s new Thermal Bridge System (TBS™) which provided an impressive thermal performance that meets the requirements of the Ontario Building Code (Code requirements for energy efficiency were increased since the original facility was built) while still allowing the use of metal building insulation which provided a seamless interior appearance that matched the look of the existing interior plant ceiling.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Bel-Con team...for the great experience we have had so far in the construction project of our expansion of Triangle Fluid Controls Ltd...I know that we have only begun the process but the effort and organisation that your team has put forth in getting things this far, under the budgetary and time constraints that were provided, are excellent and deserves recognition.
...the design-build concept/process was really a simple choice for us. It allows for faster delivery of the finished product; an overall cost savings by having a truly integrated and experienced team responsible for costs, schedules, and performance; better overall quality; and lower administrative burdens on our part.
