Parking garages have to withstand a lot of wear and tear, particularly the floors, which bear the weight of the many cars going in and out day after day. In addition, the floors often are exposed to chemicals and temperature fluctuations. They therefore need resurfacing from time to time. The Merry Hill multistory parking garage in the West Midlands was at this point after years of use. Serving one of the most successful shopping malls in Great Britain, the parking garage now looks like new since its refurbishment.
The shopping centre owner in Merry Hill wanted a durable, aesthetic and above all fast-curing floor coating so that the parking garage could be re-opened as soon as possible. The contractor, USL StructureCare, therefore chose a fast-curing surface coating based on Pasquick® technology from Covestro as a component of its DeckProtect + Rapidflex system.
