Gold medal performance from Respol
26 July 2010
Respol Industrial Flooring in Reecote project at Manchester Velodrome.The Manchester Velodrome, training headquarters and home to the British Cycling Team is no stranger to Respol. A few years after removing the stadium seats and sealing all exposed concrete to improve air quality, Respol were invited back to help with another health and safety issue. But with only a 5 day window of opportunity while Team GB were competing away, coupled with the extreme difficulties such a large area provides, the industrial resin flooring, screeds and coatings specialists had no time to spare.
The old surface, covering some 30,000 square feet of ‘run-off’ area around the track, was lifting and flaking off, causing problems for competitors. Respol removed ten coats of paint equating to over a ton of material before installing their own Reecote EC017 high build solvent free epoxy resin coating.
The sloping access ramp also received Respols' attention, receiving a new, specialist soft and non-slip flexible coating better suited to cyclists' shoes and so with an 8 year warranty on performance, gold medallist Chris Hoy and friends will be in for uninterrupted training on the road to the London 2012 Olympics.
