BELZONA MAKES FOOTBRIDGE SAFE
Industry: General Industry (GIND)
Application: FPA-Floor Problem Areas (FPA)
Customer Location: Metropolitan Borough Council in UK
Application Date: January 2003
Belzona® 5231 (SG Laminate)
Problem: The enclosed footbridge suffered condensation which made the existing rubber floor covering very slippery.
- Outside view of the footbridge
- Surface preparation in process
- Belzona® 5231 applied
- Application ready for traffic
Footbridge linking multi-story car park to shopping centre
After removing existing rubber covering and old adhesive and cleaning the concrete, two coats of Belzona® 5231 were applied with additional Belzona® 9221 (Surefoot Aggregate) sprinkled onto top the coat to provide additional non-slip properties.
Application was completed in the three-day window in which closure of the footbridge was allowed. When examined recently, the coating is still providing a safe walking surface for pedestrian.
