Multi-storey car parks are subject to great demands as rain and condensation, chloride salts, fuels and oils attack surfaces constantly subjected to vehicle loads. Penetrating moisture, contaminants and spalling concrete can affect the building structure and, therefore, also pose a threat to the safety of drivers and pedestrians. Car park surfacing and waterproofing finishes need to offer in service longevity and user comfort. A system needs to be resistant to regular vehicular and pedestrian traffic whilst providing a waterproof layer to the exposed top deck to prevent water ingress to the lower parking decks or facilities on lower floors.
By applying multi-layered, lightweight waterproofing and slip resistant systems, GMB can provide guaranteed protection and improved aesthetics to car parking structures.
The car park surfacing coatings used offer quick, effective solutions. They are cold applied with minimal equipment and are fast curing, allowing work to be carried out while the car park remains in use and reducing user disruption.
