Belzona Facts:

Following this initial area being treated a water spillage occurred half on the decking and half on the Belzona Grip System. It was noted that the timber decked area was extremely slippery and hazardous whereas the area covered with the Belzona gave excellent grip properties even when soaked with water. The use of Belzona has become a standard procedure at this site with a further large area being treated in 2007.
