Kings Swim runs a series of mid-sized pool facilities for learning to swim classes in the Melbourne suburbs.
Their latest facility recently opened in Mernda, a fast growing Northwest suburb of Melbourne.
The Architect searched for a durable finish that would be easy to clean and resistant to pool and cleaning chemicals whist providing the appropriate slip resistance to the Aust. Stand-ards for Wet Barefoot test.
They consulted Sika Specification Consultant, Jason Jansz, to advise on a possible solution.
Sika offered a seamless epoxy based floor Sikafloor®-263NS. Sikafloor®-263NS has a successful history in a variety of government and private learning facilities including trade, automotive skills areas, amenities and pool surrounds.
The 3-4mm fine textured floor was placed on pool surrounds and all amenities areas by expert installer Able Industrial Flooring.
All joints and pool abutments were sealed using Sikaflex Tank, elastic, chemical resistant polyurethane sealant.
