Tower Refurbishment, Braintree Fire Station, Essex
Braintree Fire Station, in Essex required a new waterproofing coating to one of the drill towers, which are used for training, as previous coatings had failed to have the durability to withstand the training activities. Proteus Pro-System® Plus, a cold applied liquid, was specified.
Key Requirements: High Performance Waterproofing
As the towers are used for training purposes, Proteus Pro-System® Plus was used incorporating Pro-Aggregate EM. Application was to hard wood surfaces to provide a slip-resistant finish. Proteus Waterproofing worked closely with the contractor to ensure the project was completed to a high standard. A roll out programme will take place throughout Essex with client Essex Fire and Rescue to each drill tower, when repairs are required.
Key Requirements: Health & Safety
Due to the nature of the building, a cold applied, low odour system was vital. It kept disruptions to a minimum, meaning the Fire Station could continue to operate and still respond to any emergency calls. Proteus Pro-System® Plus is also certified with the highest European Fire Rating BroofT4.
Key Requirements: Long Term Performance
