Denso Steelcoat™ Protects Footbridge Suspension
Winn & Coales Denso Steelcoat 100/400™ system was chosen by Hampshire Rigging Services of Romsey to protect the suspension of the footbridge at Thames Ditton Island, Surrey.
For this recently completed project, the Denso Steelcoat was applied to a steel wire rope which is fitted to the four tower tops from which the footbridge is suspended. The wire rope where the groove fits in is approximately 1 metre in length and 44mm diameter.
Particular attention was given to the application of Denso Steelcoat on the four tower tops and the anchorage bars, which had previously suffered from some corrosion.
Following surface preparation, the Denso Steelcoat system applied by Hampshire Rigging Services consisted of Hi-Tack Primer™ followed by Denso Profiling Mastic™ for filling awkward profiles. This was then followed by Hi-Tack Tape™, Ultraseal Tape™ and a Denso Acrylic Topcoat™.
