Much of the UK's multi-storey social housing stock was built in the 1950's and 1960's. Many of the blocks erected have external walkways and private balconies, exposed to the elements and eroded by pedestrian traffic. Once the protective surface of a balcony becomes worn or cracked, water can easily penetrate and damage the concrete deck beneath. This will inevitably lead to leaks which can cause disruption and potential damage to property and homes. Elastadeck™ Waterproofing Systems are high performance, cold liquid applied systems specifically developed for use on heavily trafficked communal walkways, stairs and private balconies. The product can also be specified in hotels and hospitals, access areas in car parks and even shopping centres. Elastadeck™ is extremely fast curing and has the advantage of a 90 minute 'walk on' time per coat. This, combined with its ultra low odour formula, makes it the ultimate in balcony refurbishment options.
