Access Steps Refurbishment With Belzona



Buildings & Structures (BSTR)



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



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.



Belzona 5231 (SG Laminate)



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.
