Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Local Council, United Kingdom

 
 

Application Date:

November 2004

 
 

Application Situation:

Heavily worn steps and disabled access ramp

 
 

Problem:

Much foot traffic and heavy weathering caused the steps and disabled access ramp of these public toilets to become damaged and worn. An inspection of the ramps according to the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) found them to be unsafe and not compliant.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4131 (Magma-Screed)

Belzona® 4411 (Granogrip)

Belzona® 5231 (SG Laminate)

 

Substrate:

Old concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-1.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The use of Belzona products was requested by the council in order to give a fast, long life, cost effective repair. The ability to bond and build up old concrete meant that the steps did not have to be completely removed and rebuilt. This ensured that the toilets would comply to the DDA standards. These heavily used toilets were quickly reopened to the public.
