Wellington Fire District’s Fire Station Flooring Challenge
With a history dating back to 1905, the Wellington Fire Protection District proudly serves over 3000 residents living throughout an area of 288 square miles in Northern Colorado. The members respond to over 500 calls per year, ranging in nature from medical emergencies to hazardous material incidents. The district recently completed construction of a brand new fire station that required a high-performance concrete floor coating system designed to meet the specific requirements of the facility. Prerequisites of the surface included the ability to resist not only oil and grease, but also a number of harsh chemicals used for equipment maintenance. In addition, the coating had to exhibit strong abrasion and impact resistance qualities that are necessary for heavy-traffic environments. The installation contractor, Mile High Coatings of Fort Collins, CO, consulted with the customer to select SPARTACOTE FLEX™ SB Chip high performance polyaspartic concrete coating system. To ease vehicle parking and organization, twelve 40’ long Safety Yellow stripes were integrated into the floor coating system.
