Farringdon Station, London

We were asked to design and specify a durable, non-slip floor incorporating Network rail and the metalwork specialists designed and installed a unique metal pedestrian bridge which consisted of purpose made trays varying in sizes.

Each individual tray was 35mm deep and constructed in stainless steel. The flooring specification needed to meet the demands for a decorative, non-slip finish, able to cope with the footfall of thousands of people each day and that complied with London Underground’s fire resistant section 12 requirements.

Total Protection infilled all 425№ steel trays at a designated warehouse with the below specification and completed the project within two months.

  • Cleaning and degreasing of each individual tray
  • Application of a stainless steel resin bonding primer
  • Whilst still in a tacky condition, mix and lay Isocrete Rapide screed
  • Application of Flowcrete’s Rapid Transit decorative acrylic resin finish incorporating silicon carbide to comply with slip resistance requirements
