Belzona® 1821 (Fluid Metal)
Problem: The chequerplate had become polished and slippery expecially when wet.
- Long chequerplate walkway before application
- Chequerplate showing preparation and correct masking to provide chevron pattern
- Application by brush with immediate removal of masking tape
- Finished job
A long steel chequerplate access walkway located alongside the community college allowing access to two buildings.
Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-8. After preparing the substrate and masking the chevron pattern on the surface the Belzona® 1821 was applied and aggregate tamped into the surface before removing the masking and allowing system to cure overnight.
Even though chequerplate is known to have a pattern across its surface this had become polished and had become very slippery expecially when wet. The Belzona® 1821 grip system applied along the surface of the chequerplate provided added positive grip and safety for pedestrians.
