Concrete Coatings for Commercial Parking Garages Above and Below-Grade

SPARTACOTE® concrete coatings are perfect solutions for busy parking garages. Due to their excellent durability, chemical resistance, and fast return to service, SPARTACOTE coatings are often specified by design teams throughout the world. Even in instances where parking structures are below-grade, SPARTACOTE has system specifications in place to ensure the right coating products are selected.

The world renown Kimbell Art Museum is known for both the value of the pieces it displays as well as the unique architecture housing its collection. Originally designed by legendary architect Louis I Kahn, the Texas based museum’s vaulted gallery ceiling projects natural light throughout the structure. This design provides for a very bright yet pleasant environment while not exposing any art to direct sunlight. Considered truly groundbreaking at the time of its construction, the Kimbell Art Museum remains the standard by which all new art galleries are judged.

When famed Architect Renzo Piano was selected to design the addition to the museum that would bear his namesake, it was critical that every detail was expertly selected to compliment the original structure. Following a thorough evaluation process, SPARTACOTE GUARD PURE™ concrete coating system was chosen for the museum’s nearly 60,000 square foot entry and commercial parking structure.

As the first impression that many museum goers receive at the new Piano Pavilion, the below-grade commercial garage flooring needed to not only be functional but aesthetically appealing. The system consisted of a primer coat of SPARTACOTE Hydro-Shield SL™ moisture mitigation primer (Note: DRYTEK™ Moisture Vapor Barrier may be substituted for Hydro-Shield SL as a moisture mitigating primer), followed by 2 coats of custom pigmented SPARTACOTE® PURE™ stripes and markings, and […]

Customized, high traction concrete coatings for retail rental car facility floors

The rental car market has specific challenges when it comes to flooring repair. These large retail spaces cannot afford to have much facility downtime. Most important to the rental car retailer is keeping its facility open, providing a safe, high traction flooring solution. Despite other flooring solutions offering the durable, aesthetic qualities required in the long hours of retail found in the rental car market, they lack in rapid floor repair service turnaround time, chemical resistance and durable finish qualities.

SPARTACOTE® coating systems for prepared concrete surfaces offer solutions to these demanding high traffic, high uptime environments, like those found in rental car facilities. These coating systems have several advantages, including rapid return to service, high traction flooring, customized colors and textures, and excellent protection against abrasion, impact and chemicals.

Big retail spaces are no issue for experienced SPARTACOTE® coatings contractors well versed in these applications. They’re used to these demanding environments where a fast turnaround time and returning the floor to service ASAP are essential. Busy, high traffic, commercial floors can typically be returned to service within one day with a four person crew after surface prep. (The coatings contractor estimates the project schedule on a case-by-case basis.)

Additionally in these time-intensive environments, the final finish needs to be durable, able to withstand heavy car and truck traffic while remaining high-traction for human foot traffic at all times. Furthermore, the floor finish in retail rental car facilities needs to handle surface contaminants effectively, such as gasoline, motor oil, de-icing salts, and other harsh chemicals. SPARTACOTE® floor coating systems offer this protection and stand up well to various accidental spills. Clean-up is easy with simple, regular floor maintenance.
