Concrete Resurfacing for Perth Schools

For managers of schools, colleges and other educational institutions, maintaining corridors, pathways and other pedestrian areas in safe condition is hard enough. But school managers also have to deal with such unusual challenges as swimming pool surrounds, where the inevitable presence of water makes many conventional concrete surfaces hazardous underfoot. 

Wespray On Paving provides the ultimate solution, with a spray-on cement paving surface that’s tough, attractive, and passes the latest slip-resistance tests with flying colours.

New Standards for Slip-Resistance

Claims for slip-and-fall injury have never been more numerous. The first defence against such a claim, and the only way to be sure that you are meeting your duty of care, is to have your pedestrian surfaces tested.

2014 saw the introduction of new slip-resistance standards. It had become clear that existing standards neglected wet surface conditions. Under the new rules:

-Existing surfaces must meet AS 4663.

-New pedestrian surfaces must now comply with AS 4586.

If your surfaces don’t meet AS 4663, they should be resurfaced and tested to AS 4586. Our surfaces are routinely subjected to the wet-pendulum test specified in AS 4586, and have yet to fail.

We have been providing pedestrian surfaces for Perth’s schools and colleges since 2001. In addition to safety, just look at what else you can expect from a Wespray On Paving surface:

-Our surfaces come with a 5 year Warranty.

-Markings and decorative signage can be embedded in the Wespray On surface; ideal for playing courts.

-The process includes a fungicidal additive which inhibits the growth of moss, mould and lichen.

-It has a UV-resistant sealer coat that keeps the colours and patterning fast and makes for easy cleaning.

-Wespray On Paving comes in a variety of attractive colours, textures and patterns

Albany Senior High School

A recent job of ours at Albany High School with some before & after shots!
The finish is in Bluestone with three contrasting flecks and a 50mm white edge strip that was applied to all steps for added safety. This edge strip is sprayed with the same resurfacing cement, eliminating the need to repaint every year which would be the case with standard paving paints. See the detail below, especially in the steps!

Little Grove Primary School Albany 2012

Wespray on paving were commissioned by the West Australian state governments building works and management division.
Over 900 square meters of veranda walkways in front of the classrooms and administration buildings were resurfaced using the parchem covertex system.
This application provided the staff and students with a durable textured  surface eliminating slips and falls during the wetter winter months.
The colour of caramel with an aggregate fleck was chosen to aesthetically compliment the surrounding buildings.
An extended wear sealer was applied to keep the colours enhanced for ease of cleaning.

Aranmore Catholic Primary Leederville

Working with Santelli Architects, Aranmore Catholic Primary School required a slip reducing finish to the recently completed classroom corridors, stairwells and undercover assembly area.
Using gunmetal as the main colour with white and charcoal aggregate flecks Wespray were able to provide a practical cost effective  surface.
Utilising the contrasting tactile paving terracotta colour, the stair treads were highlighted for added safety.

Hale Middleschool + Junior School

Hale Middle School in Wembley Downs required a durable textured finish to the slippery smooth concrete corridors and common areas on the ground and first floor.
The project was completed in December 2010.
Scheduling during the school holidays enabled the whole project to be completed within two weeks with no disruption to staff or students.
A durable extended wear sealer was applied to keep the surface protected and for ease of cleaning.
Colours used were bluestone as the main with a white and charcoal-contrasting fleck.
The Junior school had layers of old paint flaking from the surface. This was ground back to bare concrete in the preparation process.
A solid French grey coat was applied with flecks and all stair treads were highlighted with a contrasting colour for added safety.
