Belzona® Restores Local Bank

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Wall Problem Areas (WPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Bank, Scotland

 
 

Application Date:

March 2011

 
 

Application Situation:

Window sills, lintels and the external walls of the bank.

 
 

Problem:

Age and the effect of weather had caused serious deterioration to the buildings facade.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4141 (Magma-Build)

Belzona® 5151 (Hi-Build Cladding)

 

Substrate:

Stone

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets WPA-1 and WPA-4. The defective external wall coatings were removed. Some of the broken profiles around the windows and the lintel above the front door were repaired with Belzona® 4141. Belzona® 5151 was then applied to the stonework to protect the surface from further damage.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The poor appearance of the bank led to the village being rejected for a Civic Trust award. This ledto pressure on the bank to improve its external facade. The Belzona solution was chosen for its speed in carrying out the upgrade and the self-cleaning properties of the Belzona® 5151 will ensure the buildings appearance will be maintained for many years to come.
