A pedestrian is a happy driver, who has found a parking lot. [Joachim Fuchsberger]
Depending on the area of application, there are varying requirements for the protection of the surfaces. VIASOL DECK systems are suitable for exposed car parking areas, multi-storey car park levels, underground car parks and ramps as well as spiral ramps and walkways.
Exposed Parking Areas
Exposed parking areas must be able to withstand all kinds of elements such as weather conditions, changes in the temperature, exposure to chemical substances and mechanical loads for long periods. De-icing salts and other salt products pose the biggest threat to the surface. A lot of damage can be caused by salts permeating the building.
Although the levels in a multi-storey car park aren´t dircetly exposed to weathering coming from above, often the sides are open and hence the weather can affect its surfaces. These levels can be subjected to the cold, heat, vibrations, traffic and chemical substances.
Underground Car Park
An underground car park ist space-saving and can be many floors deep, but the lower the car park goes, the more the building becomes prone to water vapour diffusion. When this is the case, it is advisable to install a vapour permeable surface protection system in the underground car park.
Ramps & Spiral Ramps
Ramps and spiral ramps are often exposed to repeated wear an tear in the same areas. Spiral ramps are especially exposed to heavy wear. For this reason, a coating with high wear-resistance should be applied on surfaces exposed to heavy mechanical loads.
Die Zugänge zum Parkhaus für Fußgänger bestehen oft aus Brückenwege oder Außentreppen. Diese sind allen Witterungen und somit auch hohen Temperaturunterschiede ausgesetzt. Das Beschichtungssystem muss zudem eine rutschhemmende und sichere Oberfläche bieten.
