"Slip Prevention For Any Surface In All Environments"
Access Ramp Anti-Slip Treatment - Public Library
This newly built multi-level series of concrete access ramps was constructed at the rear of a public library in the North East of the UK for disabled pedestrian and wheel chair access.
The architects specified an access ramp anti-slip treatment with a coloured seamless coating that would provide a hard wearing anti-slip finish to the concrete surface. It was also specified that the landing areas should be finished in a different contrasting colour to the main ramp areas to comply with DDA legislation.
To apply the access ramp anti-slip treatment a two pack fast curing and hard wearing resin coating was applied to the entire surface of the ramps in light grey and in a deeper contrasting purple colour to the landings. To achieve optimum adhesion to the new concrete a damp tolerant surface primer was applied first. The coating system was then applied with rollers incorporating a hard wearing bauxite non-slip particle within the resin. The identical resin was also applied to some concrete steps.
The wet slip resistance of the finished coating gave a recorded reading of 55PTV with a Pendulum. Well above minimal requirements
