Challenges for Parking Garage Floors
Every parking facility is different. Parking decks in multi-level garages, for example, have very special coating needs. Moisture intrusion can corrode the concrete slab from within, eventually contributing to weakened internal metal structures. Owners and operators want a cost-effective concrete deck coating system that can protect new concrete or restore older concrete surfaces. Concrete parking decks can suffer when they are exposed to:
Fuels and oils
Chlorides and carbonation
Acid rain and other pollutants
Snow, ice or hail
A good parking garage floor coating system should help prolong the life of the concrete structure as a whole. Eclat STS strives to find flooring that offers high performance, outstanding durability and safety for every facility’s unique needs.
Using Concrete Finishes for Parking Garage Flooring Solutions
Multi-level garages can be expensive to keep well lit. The right concrete floor finishes, can ease this cost burden. The best epoxy floor coatings are available in light-reflective finishes that can help make dark areas brighter, enhance safety and reduce the need for additional lighting fixtures.
The parking lot may also need floor coatings that can accommodate the different levels of skid-resistance that may be needed in different areas within the structure. For example, pedestrian walkways and elevator lobbies should limit slippage, while still being able to withstand street shoe and cart traffic. Traffic lanes, parking slots and turning areas may have slightly different slip-resistance requirements, depending on building dimensions and design. Joints, cracks and concrete surface breaches also need to be addressed with the appropriate rigid or elastomeric materials. Eclat STS systems offer these safety options and more.
