New walkways for aerospace supplier’s Birmingham factory
New walkways and aisles are fit for a cutting edge aerospace supplier.
UTC Aerospace Systems is one of the world’s largest suppliers of technologically advanced aerospace and defence products. They design, manufacture and service systems and components and provide integrated solutions for commercial, regional, business and military aircraft, helicopters and other platforms. They are also a major supplier to international space programmes. The main aisles and walkways throughout the Marston Green factory needed to be replaced and IRL carried out this work in several phases using a FeRFA Type 5 Sikafloor 263 Flow Applied Self Smoothing Epoxy Resin System. In total 345m2 of flooring was laid over three visits. This product is a two part, economic, multi-purpose binder based on epoxy resin with a good chemical and mechanical resistance which is ideal for medium to heavy duty use such as in this facility. There weren’t any difficulties or fundamental issues with the works, other than it was a relatively tight programme with works being carried out over back to back weekends. The client’s representative was pleased with the work and IRL’s management of the project.
