Ard Resins and Resin Surfaces
ROCHESTER-BASED ARD Resins is working closely with resin manufacturers Resin Surfaces (RSL) to provide a smooth solution to a heavy-duty brief from a large-scale engineering business.
Westwell Developments, also based in Rochester, specialises in the refurbishment of large plant/mechanical equipment and the manufacturing of ‘one off’ bespoke components.
The company required a durable, heavy duty flooring solution over 350sq feet to support machinery with lifting capacity of up to 60,000 tonnes. It also needed to be non-slip to meet strict onsite health and safety demands.
There was a seven-day window for the work ahead of a 30 tonne LEGO Land ride which was due in for refurbishment.
Prior to the install ARD Resins used a diamond grinder to the substrate to remove all grease, oil and other debris, applied crack treatment, filled all holes and uneven areas.
They then used RSL’s Dampshield product to provide a key damp-proof membrane over the existing concrete slab base and installed Resucoat HB as the high-build coating, incorporating a textured finish to meet the non-slip aspects of the brief.
The contractor then applied safety lines, installed yellow exit/walkways and a red welding bay area.
Ray Buckwell, from ARD Resins, said the technical support from RSL had been excellent throughout. ‘I’ve been using RSL products for over three years – they always tick all the boxes for us – and their recommendations and knowledge is second to none.’
Dale Banton, regional sales manager for RSL, commented: ‘We value Ray’s feedback and will continue to support them – and the many other contractors we work with in the UK and overseas – to supply not just great product but the right product for the right needs.’
This year RSL celebrates 35 years supplying the industrial flooring industry, providing an unrivalled bank of experience in product development and technical competency.
Dale again: ‘We can always provide a bespoke wall and floor solution - whatever the situation - based on years of training and investment - it’s something we’re really good at.’
