Concord Hospital

Deckshield ID Takes Care of Hazardous Walkways

Founded in 1942, Concord Hospital is a major medical facility and teaching hospital of the University of Sydney. The hospital's mental health care unit is the Kalparrin Day Centre.

Recent refurbishments have been made to make repairs to the day centre's badly damaged driveway, pathway and bus stop areas, which had begun to present a possible danger of slips and trips to patients and visitors.

The existing concrete surface was spalling in several locations due to corrosion of the steel reinforcements which had originally been laid without adequate concrete cover. After treatment of the exposed steel, Flowcrete's Flowtex HT, an epoxy mortar was used to repair the damaged floor. A fast curing version of Flowtex HT was used in some areas.

A custom coffee coloured blend of Deckshield ID, a solvent-free protective traffic coating was then installed with a slip resistance of 50BPM and above achieved. The Deckshield system looks attractive and delivers great slip resistance as well as providing a barrier to stop contaminants from entering the concrete surface and causing further steel corrosion leading to concrete spalling.

Deckshield ID by Flowcrete Australia has the added benefits of being hard wearing, having excellent fire resistance and fast track installation time.
