Waterproofing specialists for car park decks and waterproofing specialists provide a high-performance protective layer that extends the life of a car parking deck, protecting it from damage caused by weather cycles, thermal stresses, abrasion and mechanical impact. Correctly specified mastic asphalt or PMMA based car park surfacing solutions also offer safety benefits by demarcating areas for drivers and pedestrians, helping to keep people safe from harm.
The slanted surfaces of ramps in a parking garage must be particularly strong and wear-resistant to cope with heavy vehicular traffic, abrasion and the build-up of salt and de-icing products. They also require effective protection from hydrostatic pressure, which can cause water to penetrate the concrete and attack the steel rebar, as well as managing moisture within the structure.

A specialised liquid parking garage waterproofing solution is ideal for use on concrete and timber substrates. It is fast to apply, providing a quick return to service and minimal disruption. Its elastomeric properties also mean it can cope with a range of temperatures, from hot and humid in tropical climates to extreme cold and snow in northern areas.
The type of system chosen will depend on the finished wearing surface required, advises Gordon Anderson of a.b.e. Waterproofing SA. “There are a number of alternative systems on the market, including polyurea /polyurethane and Crystalline”, he says, adding that the best option is to consult with a waterproofing specialist from the outset. This will help to ensure that the right technology is selected for the project and to avoid failures such as this.
