Podium Deck Flooring Solutions

The design, planning, application and detailing of podium deck flooring are crucial, whether the podium deck is situated on the ground level with a void below, or on the roof. When considering waterproofing and surfacing solutions, the differential movement, drainage and waterproofing of expansion joints must be taken into account along with the suitability for foot or vehicular traffic, landscaping and the impact the solution will have on what is below the podium deck.

Mastic asphalt levelling screeds and two-component hot applied liquids based on poly-methyl-methacrylate, also known as PMMA, are well suited for specification on podium decks flooring of both new buildings and refurbishment.

Mastic asphalt levelling screeds for podium deck flooring

Hot applied mastic asphalt screeds can be laid to various thicknesses and range of falls or can be used as a base. Unlike traditional screeds, they do not require compaction. Mastic asphalt screed allows for fast application and the rapid curing times make the podium deck trafficable much quicker than traditional screeds.

 PMMA for podium deck flooring

 A two-component PMMA coating can be cold applied to concrete and cement based substrates even in poor weather conditions, making this an ideal solution for often externally weathered podium decks. The solution has seamless finish and provides a durable, protective and hard wearing layer suitable for vehicular traffic. The installation is rapid and flame free, and the fast curing times are well suited for podium deck applications.
