Sikafloor 264 Thixo – Slip Resistant Epoxy Coating
The new Winchester Fire Department was built to house their five fire engines.
GSS Flooring were asked to specify and install a new resin system that would not only be durable but would give adequate slip resistance under foot and for the fire engines driving in and out daily.
The substrate was prepared using remote controlled, quad headed rotary diamond grinders. The cracks and perimeter joints were repaired with Sikafloor 280 epoxy mortar. Sikafloor 161 epoxy primer was then applied to the total area, prior to one coat of Sikafloor 264 epoxy coating. The final coat was Sikafloor 264 Thixo, a two component, high build epoxy, coloured coating. The resin was textured whilst wet, to give added durability and slip resistance.
All perimeter expansion joints were reinstated and filled with Sikaflex polyurethane sealant.
Work was carried out and completed in 5 days.
