Heavy Duty Polyurethane Screed Supports Dogsthorpe Fire Station
Dogsthorpe fire station was built in the 1970’s and was due a full refurbishment to the main station hall.
The existing floor coverings were covered with solid fire proof tiles. These had become uneven due to 25 Tonne fire truck’s running over them on a daily basis.
The weight load was so significant. Thus their was only one product which could stand up to this volume of weight regularly, heavy duty polyurethane screed.
It took a total of 3 days to complete each of the appliance bays. With a curing time of 48 hours per bay, and with 6 bays in total, it took some careful planning prior to the work commencing so that the station was still functional.
Withstand weight and regular cleaning
The specification needed to be not only heavy duty, but have a surface that could be cleaned to a very high standard. With this in mind Polyurethane screed was laid @ 10 mm thickness.
Once the screed had fully cured we then roller applied a solvent free epoxy coating with a gloss finish. This ensured the fire personnel could keep up to the station commanders high level standards.
“What a transformation the floor has made, were all very pleased with the finish, and the way the guys operated.”
Paul Duffield (Station Commander)
