"Slip Prevention For Any Surface In All Environments"
Local Authority Swimming Pool Complex
The flooring surface of the changing rooms and showers in this public swimming pool had badly deteriorated due to the failure of a previously laid floor screed. Sharpe edges were protruding on the surface causing high risk to bare feet. The surface was also attracting dirt and grease and in some areas was showing signs of heavy bacterial build up. From a health & safety point of view and a visual aspect the council were forced into action.
So that minimal disruption was caused to swimming lessons and public swimming one half of the changing rooms was closed down. All cubicles were removed by the council. The original floor screed which had a resin screed topping was removed using very heavy duty floor grinders. All debris and dust was then collected and the remaining floor surface thoroughly vacuumed to remove all final dust. Finally a high build liquid applied heavy duty anti-slip resin in light blue was installed throughout all areas which improves floor slip resistance. On completion this was Pendulum slip tested for compliance.
