Glasgow’s Newest Hospital Installs Fast Curing Car Park Coating

The new, 1,100 bed South Glasgow University Hospital worked with Flowcrete UK to install a car park deck coating solution that met the site’s functional, aesthetic and construction demands.

20,000 mof the methyl methacrylate (MMA) based floor coatings Deckshield Rapide ED and Deckshield Rapide ID was applied throughout the hospital’s multi-storey car park, including on the exposed top deck and on the ramp. 

Deckshield Rapide was chosen as it has been designed to meet the operational challenges experienced within car park facilities. It is able to withstand the inevitable heavy wheeled traffic, continuous use and exposure to automotive oils and liquids that car parks undergo. The robust nature of the system’s resin make up means that it will be able to maintain a seamless, colourful and crack-free finish for an extended period of time.

Flowcrete UK supplied Deckshield Rapide ED in both grey and blue so that bright and colourful walkways could be incorporated into the car park’s floor to aid the safe navigation of pedestrians. High-quality aesthetics is a key aspect of the Deckshield range, as first impressions start from the moment a visitor enters the car park, therefore it is important to ensure that the initial experience is of a clean, appealing and unbroken surface.  

Thanks to its MMA formulation, Deckshield Rapide ED allows for fast track installations that take a fraction of the time of alternative solutions. On average a Deckshield Rapide ED floor will achieve a full traffic and chemical cure within 2-3 hours.
