However, creating a car park floor that consistently portrays a clean, functional and appealing surface can be a tricky task, as amongst other challenges the finish will be exposed to automotive oils, heavy vehicles moving in tight circles, thermal cycling, water ingress and exposure to the elements on exposed decks.
Flowcrete UK has developed the Deckshield range of waterproof, crack bridging polyurethane deck coatings, which can be used across exposed decks, internal decks, ramps, walkways and loading bays.
Deckshield is available in a wide range of bright and attractive colours. These colour options make it ideal for creating bright and visually appealing car park interiors as well as incorporating easy-to-see navigational signage, pedestrian walkways and safety warnings into the finish.
To improve the car park experience, Deckshield systems are available that can reduce unpleasant noise from tyre squeal. The texture of this range also makes the car park safer for pedestrians, as it enhances traction underfoot to reduce the risk of slips or falls.
