Car Park Deck Coating Enhances the Attractiveness of Parking Areas
Car Park Deck Coating isn’t just about protecting a multi-story car park structure, it also enhances the aesthetics of the parking area. Miracote offers a range of high-quality parking deck coatings, designed to deliver an attractive finish and durable protection for up to ten years.
Car park structures experience a wide variety of stresses over time due to the dynamic movement of heavy vehicles. This can cause movement at the construction joints as well as movement at each floor level. In addition, the concrete slab can expand and contract as it heats or cools, creating a dynamic load across all layers of the structure.
Preserving Spaces: The ABCs of Car Park Deck Coating
Protecting a parking deck from the harsh chemicals associated with cars and their fluids is vital to prolong the life of the structure. These include oil, de-icing salts, exhaust fumes and chlorides as well as the impact of UV rays. A waterproofing treatment prevents these effects on the structural concrete.
In addition to this, the top decks of car parks are often exposed to direct sunlight and need to be water-resistant in order to reduce the risk of slips and accidents. A methyl methacrylate coating system that can adhere to damp concrete substrates and cure in cold conditions is ideal for this type of project. These systems are ideally suited for the intermediate or underground levels of car parks as well as top and exposed decks, ramps and entrance areas. These odor and solvent free coatings are also available in a wide variety of colors which can be used to create distinct zones for different car parks.
