Application Situation:

The original steel staircase on a historical building in downtown Kansas City was brought back to life with Belzona.

 
 

Problem:

The original 1940's steel staircase at the future home of the Kansas City Museum was in much need of repair or replacement.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 5231 (SG Laminate)

Belzona 1221 (Super E-Metal)

Belzona 5233

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The entire staircase was blasted to near white metal. Belzona 1221 was used to anchor in a steel nosing. Belzona 5231 was used as the base coat on all surfaces and an anti-slip aggregate was broadcasted on all foot path areas. A final top coat of UV stable Belzona 5233 was then installed on all surfaces.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Replacing the stair with a similar kind was in excess of $50,000 and the Belzona application was less than $10,000.
