Car Park Project Introduction:

Car parks are an essential part of our daily lives, allowing us to safely park our cars while we go about our business. However, car parks need to be well-maintained and safe for both pedestrians and drivers. That's where resin applications come in. In this blog, we will focus on a recent project by 4m Floors UK for a multi-storey car park in Calthorpe. We will also discuss why car parks need resin applications and why they are the best choice.

The Project: The Calthorpe multi-storey car park had been in use for some years and required a full strip back using heavy-duty machinery and sandblasting.

Floor preparation

Involved removing old paint and debris that was flaky, worn, and cracked. Any holes and cracks were repaired using resin, which was then followed by a DPM layer to damp proof the area. Two coats of resin were applied, and the complex layout of the parking bays was defined and marked out for resin paint to be applied for demarcation and safety walkways for pedestrians. Anti-slip measures were also added for extra safety. Additionally, the car park was given an epoxy resin anti-slip color-coded finish with marked out bays and numbers. The signage and iconography stencils were made using hard-wearing resins, and custom logos and designs were created to make the car park stand out.

Why Resin Applications are the Best:

Resin applications are the best choice for car parks because they provide a durable and long-lasting finish that can withstand heavy use and harsh weather conditions. Resin coatings are also seamless, making them easy to clean and maintain. Additionally, resin applications offer excellent slip resistance, making them ideal for areas that are prone to accidents. Another significant advantage of resin applications is that they are fast-curing. Epoxy and PU take between 8 to 24 hours (dependent on ambient temperature), whereas the curing time of methacrylate is approximately two hours. This is ideal for companies that need minimal downtime.
