A long steel chequerplate access walkway located alongside the community college allowing access to two buildings.

Products:

Belzona® 1821 (Fluid Metal)  

 

Substrate:

Steel chequerplate.

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-8. After preparing the substrate and masking the chevron pattern on the surface the Belzona® 1821 was applied and aggregate tamped into the surface before removing the masking and allowing system to cure overnight. 

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Even though chequerplate is known to have a pattern across its surface this had become polished and had become very slippery expecially when wet. The Belzona® 1821 grip system applied along the surface of the chequerplate provided added positive grip and safety for pedestrians.
