Manufacturing Plant / Exterior Upgrade
PROBLEM: This project is at a 113 year old Manufacturing plant that needed to upgrade the main entrance. Like many plant operations they tend to concentrate on production while the facility tends to be neglected. All clients use this entrance. Not a good first impression.
The Concrete steps and landings have been deteriorating for over the past 75 to 100 years from salting in the winter. The owner was looking for a cost saving alternative in completely removing the concrete steps and landings. This would be an expensive and lengthy endeavor. Down time is always an issue.
SOLUTION: The method selected was to use a Decorative Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) system. This system gives a bright new look as well as long lasting durability. It can handle the extreme temperature swings in the northeast as well as resistance to salt for the winter ice. Time of installation was 2 days start to finish due to filling deep concrete pitting. The product is not temperature sensitive. It can be applied down to -20 degrees or extreme heat without set or cure time concerns. The system cures in 1hour for foot traffic.
