With only a limited time available for the works in a scheme called Brexit resilience with the Port’s aim of increasing routes outward of Europe.
The whole span had become worn out/polished losing the majority of its anti-slip properties from its first application over 10 years ago.
In what is a notoriously wet month in UK of October, every precaution was made to make sure the application was to our own high standard and free of any moisture. JMS jet mounted dryer was used to heat up the old substrate for stripping back to steel using skid steer bobcats with abrasive attachments and breakers. Although on countless occasions its multi-use come in handy after heavy rainfall the surface was dried and JMS was ready to continue works, a life saver!
The old corroded span received captive blasting using JMS blast 245-D Lorry to industry standard SA2.5. Blasted areas were cleaned before receiving a protective coat of anti-corrosive polyurethane primer for long lasting protection. All primed areas were immediately applied after curing with a heavy-duty anti-skid polyurethane resin system, Bimagrip LS. Chosen for its reliability and performance with a 3-5mm Emery aggregate, also chosen for its robustness and suitability.
775sqm completed in a remarkable two days with the final third morning used for cleaning the surrounding area and site. A new guaranteed safe surface for the next 10 years to come and a happy client to match.
Be the best and do it right first time.
