Over the years large cracks have appeared in the wooden structure of a public playground
Over the years large cracks have appeared in the wooden structure of a public playground.
The local authority inspectors has criticized these cracks as they represented a great risk of injury for children playing. Using this example, we will show you how you can permanently solve such problems with the products from Repair Care.
In preparation for the repair, the cracks were routed out to remove loose wood fibers, then the areas were cleaned and pre-treated with DRY FIX® UNI.
After an exposure time of 20 minutes, DRY FLEX® 4 was applied with a shaping knife in accordance with the Repair Care working methods.
In the case of very large cracks, the resin acted as a glue to the wood and an adhesive bed of at least 5mm was allowed. (see product selector)
After the DRY FLEX® had cured, the entire repair area was lightly sanded
Before painting, the repaired area was sanded again for optimal adhesion of the paint.
The durable repair ensures that the playground toys can be used for many years with approval from the local authority inspectors.
