SPECIFIERS, says Flowcrete, can get up to speed with the unique qualities of its ‘high performance’ Deckshield system with the launch of a guide to car park deck waterproofing and coatings.
From basements through to external decks, the 28 page brochure takes readers through the different zones of a multi-storey car park, exploring the Flowcrete Deckshield systems for each environment.
Highlights include detailed breakdowns of Deckshield solutions, how the Puma (polyurethane modified methyl methacrylate) formulation enables fast turnround and application in low temperatures, as well as complementary systems which allow for thermal and dynamic building loads.
Insight is given into colour options and an overview of testing and certification standards is also provided, together with a visual guide of a virtual car park environment, to give specifiers a top-line summary of the range of options available.
Neil Roberts, Construction Products Group UK market manager, said: ‘Flowcrete Deckshield has a time-proven and trusted track record across the globe, creating a visually appealing, anti-slip environment, which protects decks from wear, movement and spillages.’
He adds that ‘multi-storey car parks are often overlooked as uncomplicated, simple structures – but there is a multitude of complex building considerations for both new build and refurbishment projects to consider. This is especially true of the deck, which has to cope with the constant passage of heavy vehicles, structural movement, exposure to the elements and attack from automotive chemicals, all while protecting the vulnerable concrete from being damaged by water and other contaminants.’
Flowcrete thinks that every deck is different and, with this in mind, has combined multiple water-proofing and wearing surface systems, as well as movement joints, together into this one specification brochure, to set out the ‘perfect solution’ for any car park.
The brochure also outlines Flowcrete’s customer programme – from initial consultation, site survey, specification, technical and installation support, through to warranty and aftercare.
And, as part of the Construction Products Group UK, the brochure also highlights solutions for joint sealing, bonding, and insulation through passive fire protection to flooring, waterproofing and roofing – ‘all supported by a wealth of expertise across all construction disciplines’.
