Spider cracks compromising the integrity of the staircase and allowing water to penetrate into the building’s data center underground.
The entire repair was complete on a Saturday afternoon after employees vacated the building. The cracks were filled with Belzona 4111 and the entire surface was restored for waterproofing and a long-lasting protection.
Safety Grip System
The safety grip systems in place on 3 separate sets of steps were ageing and no longer performing as intended. This was presenting a significant slip and trip hazard for the staff and students using the facility, warranting them to investigate a suitable replacement for the long term.
First, the existing grip system was removed from the concrete steps and preparation began to ensure a firm and clean substrate. Due to water ingress underneath the metal plates, the was some spalling concrete around the anchor points. Belzona 4141 was used to reform these areas and provide a neat edge on to which the new grip system could be applied. The Belzona 4411 and Belzona 9211 units were mixed then together and applied on to the concrete step nosings in strips.
