South West Trains Depot

Client: South West Trains Depot
Location: Bournemouth


800 sqm of Bournemouth South West Trains depot needed completely resurfacing to repair an existing anti-slip resin system, which had been poorly installed and was failing to perform.

All of the existing coating had to be removed back to a concrete substrate, using a specialist fleet of surface preparation machines. A Degafloor anti slip FB was specified and installed on a fast rolling program. The work had to be completed to a demanding timescale, to ensure minimal disruption to the busy depot. The depot managers were delighted with the tough, yet attractive floor, completed on time and with minimal disruption. The installation was completed by one of our installation partners Industrial Flooring Solutions Ltd.

Why Degafloor?

The new surface had to be incredibly durable, non slip and chemically resistant in order to withstand the heavy engineering type environment. Degafloor’s FB system (which includes a coloured quartz aggregate) was a perfect choice to meet all these requirements. Timing was extremely important and the work had to fit around the busy work schedule at the depot, this meant the Degafloor system was the obvious
choice as installation can be completed incredibly quickly due to the 2-hour cure time of the product. Derek Whitby of Hackwood Building Services commented “everyone is very happy with the end result, it is
extremely functional, hard wearing and looks great – in short a good job all round!”
