Stirling Lloyd's Bridgemaster Combined Anti-slip and Waterproofing System

Route One Highways were chosen by Nusteel Structures to carry out the Bridgemaster to two footbridges, prior to installation at Icknield Way.

Route One operatives installed Stirling Lloyd’s Bridgemaster System – a 3 in 1 combined waterproofing, wearing course and high friction surfacing to the two footbridges at Nusteel’s premises in Kent.

Using Stirling Lloyd’s advanced resin technology, Bridgemaster is a fast curing, methyl methacrylate resin based screed combined with an aggregate overscatter and sealer coat. The system is a flexible, durable and economical solution that protects bridge decks and requires minimal maintenance.

The bridge deck was prepared and primed by Nusteel prior to our arrival on site. Deck preparation is carried out in order to achieve an SA2.5 finish, removing any rust, dirt or scale and then primed using Stirling Lloyd’s ZedS94 anti corrosive metal primer to protect the steel work from corrosion and to enhance the bond between the Bridgemaster System and the deck.

A 6mm thick system was chosen with 1-3 mm Guyanan Bauxite Grey aggregate to provide a robust and durable finish.

Jenny Claringbould, Stirling Lloyd Bridges Manager says:

“Nusteel are one of the leading suppliers of steel bridges to the UK Construction Industry and are able to provide the full package from bridge design and build through to installation. Stirling Lloyd have been working closely with Nusteel over the last 24 months, offering a wide range of products and solutions that ensure the structures they have designed and built are fully protected by waterproofing systems that are easy to apply, offer durability and longevity.

Route One Highways, one of our Authorised Contractors, have extensive experience in applying our products on a wide range of structures – road bridges, rail bridges and footbridges and were the chosen partner to work with Nusteel on these structures.”
