Ultracrete ensures all-weather play for infants school
Ultracrete’s Post Fix Rapid Hardening Concrete, Instant Road Repair Cold Lay Asphalt Concrete
Products from Ultracrete have been used in the construction of a large canopy structure at Broclewood Infants School in Nottingham.
The school wanted to make more use of its outside area as well as weather proofing part of the playground to facilitate play come rain or shine.
Canopies UK supplied and installed the canopy using Ultracrete’s Post Fix Rapid Hardening Concrete and Instant Road Repair Cold Lay Asphalt Concrete.
The cantilever canopy system has a self-supporting design which means there are no obstructive vertical pillars for children to bump into.
The canopy posts were bedded using Ultracrete’s Post Fix, supplied in 25kg plastic bags.
It is specifically formulated for the sub-surface installation of a range of posts, signs, fences and road side barriers.
Post Fix combines strength and durability, and sets in 15 minutes.
It serves as a fast and efficient installation.
Mixed with approximately 2.5 litres of water, Post Fix produces a hard wearing and durable concrete.
It achieves a compressive strength of 32N/mm² within 7 days.
Once the posts had been installed, the surface base was sprayed with Ultracrete SCJ Seal and Tack coat spray before the application of Ultracrete Instant Road Repair® Cold Lay Asphalt concrete 6mm grade.
Instant Road Repair is a HAPAS Approved surfacing material for first time reinstatements which, when compacted, can be trafficked immediately.
It has a high PSV of 65 and will not wear easily.
Used with Ultracrete SCJ Seal and Tack Coat, it provides a permanent repair.
