Achieving watertight finishes for communal areas

  • 30th September 2022

Outdoor spaces are constantly exposed to harsh weather conditions and heavy foot traffic. This will naturally increase throughout the upcoming autumn and winter months.
Providing long-lasting protection to these areas is crucial from a health and safety perspective and, when it comes to busy spaces, you need a system that works quickly and will create minimum disruption to the building.

Why you should use Elastadeck to waterproof your area

It is designed specifically for medium to high-wear areas

Balconies and walkways, such as those found in social housing blocks and shopping centres, are created to take heavy footfall and so when areas such as these need to be waterproofed, the system installed should be able to handle that amount of traffic.
With resin technology, Elastadeck delivers a durable finish, allowing areas to toughen, providing a slip-resistant surface and withholding the wear it is used for.

It provides a seamless barrier

With only two coats required, Elastadeck creates a joint-free waterproof finish that allows water to run away freely from the surface, rather than stay still.
A reinforcement mat is also used to embed the basecoat resin and to reinforce its strength before anti-slip grits are applied immediately, speeding up the curing process.

It repairs, as well as prevents water penetration

By seamlessly sealing all cracks and small holes on the surface, Elastadeck delivers a protective coating that eliminates the risk of water penetration and provides complete protection against the elements, even in the harshest environments.

It coats your balcony quickly, minimising downtime

Elastadeck is the fastest balcony coating system on the market and, with a low odour, it can be installed and dried within a matter of hours, causing little to no disruption to your site’s daily operations.
