A new client awarded ACC Flooring the initial work to upgrade their walkways & zebra crossings around their site in the High Peak in Derbyshire.
The new walkway into a bridge needed the existing walkway to be blanked out to avoid any confusion for pedestrians. The zebra crossing from the bridge to the adjoining walkway needed to be re-configured.
A new zebra crossing & walkway were to be created at a second location on site.
The concrete substrate to both areas was mechanically prepared with hand held diamond grinders & then made good with ACC Maintain, a low odour polyurethane concrete offering high abrasion resistance & impact resistance. A main feature is that the product cures at low temperatures & is perfect for external work throughout the year.
ACC Grip HD was installed to the walkways. The system consists of an epoxy base coat with the Bauxite aggregate fully blinded to cover the designated area. Once cured, the excess aggregate is swept off & vacuumed. A final coat of a high build epoxy coating applied to seal the system.
Demarcation lines in Altro Line high visibility, high gloss, and high build epoxy coating in Safety Yellow was applied to both sides of the walkways to complete the installation.
Altro Line in Black & White was installed to form the two new zebra crossings. A small hatched area was created to the side of a building again in Altro Line Safety Yellow to produce a designated area to prevent pallet storage which may cause a potential health & safety issue.
Altro Line is ideal for defining pedestrian routes, isolated areas & spaces & benefits from high visibility, high gloss finish & ease of cleaning.
ACC Grip HD has a medium duty classification with a life expectancy of 10 years for wheeled traffic. The product has a pendulum test value slip resistance rating of ≥50 offering a low slip potential in both wet & dry conditions.
The recommended cleaning method to maintain product performance would be by using a scrubber dryer.
The client was delighted with the installation which was installed causing minimal disruption to a site working around the clock.
