Exposed top decks of car parks prove the most complex when it comes to car park flooring. The system needs to be resistant to regular vehicular traffic and pedestrian traffic whilst providing a waterproof layer to the structure prevent water ingress to lower parking decks or facilities on lower floors. Ecoflor has a range of flexible top deck waterproofing systems that can provide a solution to all the exposed deck requirements.
Exposed Deck Safety
From increasing the visibility of car parking spaces to reduce knocks and bumps, to maintaining a sturdy, flat surface without cracks or damage which can result in trips and falls, our flexible exposed car park deck waterproofing system is full of clever safety features which will help protect your patrons.
Unlike lower decks, the exposed car park deck will be subject to temperature cycling which needs a flexible surface to cope. Our polyaspartic and polyurethane exposed deck systems have an elastic waterproof membrane and flexible inter-coats that can cope with the inter-day temperature fluctuations as well as seasonal variations. These elastic components will remain flexible for the life of the system.
The increased flexibility of the exposed deck system provides a major advantage – keeping the floor system waterproof throughout it’s life. Water ingress from a top deck to lower decks creates major issues. Regular water ingress to concrete structures leads to spalling and corrosion of reinforcing components, meaning costly concrete repairs further in to the structures life. Water migrating from the top deck through the structure can also lead to damage to paintwork of vehicles parked on lower decks in the line of any water movement, with potential for high value insurance claims against building owners or operators.
The longevity and durability of Ecoflor’s exposed deck systems reduces the cost of maintaining and replacing your surfaces and mitigates costly concrete repairs to lower level structures over time. With years of durable-life, our waterproof deck systems require less regular maintenance and protect your premises components in the long term with impressive abrasion resistance – even in high traffic sites. Our top deck system also has a UV resistant top coat so it won’t discolour over time in the sunlight.
