Access Steps Refurbishment With Belzona

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Research Facility, Melbourne, Australia

 
 

Application Date:

October 2015

 
 

Application Situation:

Access steps and walkway at a prominent medical research facility

 
 

Problem:

The access steps to the research facility had become worn over time making them prone to slip hazards, especially after periods of heavy rain which had been highlighted by a recent HSE audit.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 5231 (SG Laminate)

 

Substrate:

Coated concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet FPA-8. The existing sound coating was thoroughly abrsaded before applying the Belzona 5231 system. Additional aggregate was added between coats to provide a higher level of slip resistance.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 5231 was chosen because of its incorporated aggregate which provides a high level of slip resistance, combined with superior wear resistance.  Its ability to be applied onto the manually prepared existing coating was also a prime consideration, as the sensitive research items within the building prohibited the use of any kind of mechanical tooling.
