Leopardstown racecourse dates back to 1888 and is regarded as one of Europe’s premier race locations. The current racecourse and buildings were developed in 1967 and have continuously expanded through the years. The tote hall is the focus of race day activity with bars, food outlets and betting facilities all located under the main stand.
Main Problem and Requirements
The refurbishment of the tote hall included a new floor finish to compliment new bars and food outlets. The existing floor consisted of vinyl tiles and these in part were left in place to reduce cost and ensure the contract was completed in time. Remmers supplied samples and liaised with architects in ensuring the correct system was specified for the new floor.
Remmers Epoxy FAS 100 was used as a special primer for adhesion to the vinyl tiles prior to the application of a flow applied Epoxyflex Coating PH, (applied in three colours). A scratch resistant and slip resistant seal coat PUR Top M+, was then applied to enhance the durability of the floor surface. Ceramix colour quartz system was used behind the bar areas for increased slip resistance.
