Project Description

This is a new multi million pound hangar with 13,000 sq m at Biggin Hill Airport, Biggin Hill, Bromley. The construction was completed in August 2010. Sika has provided high level of technical back-up and support, and had access to a wide variety of solutions.

Project Requirements

The floor of the new hangar required a 5 mm resin finish with an integral DPM.

Sika Solutions

Sikafloor® 81 Epocem was applied as DPM (Dampf Proof Mem-brane) in the main hangar, and Sikafloor® 263 SF as a 3 mm self levelling. To provide a robust trafficable floor with very high quality finish, Walkways were marked with Sikafloor® 264 and made matt finish with Sikafloor® 304. Kitchens had 9 mm screed of Sikafloor® Purcem. Battery rooms was applied with Sikafloor® 264 ASN Thixo. Workshops was applied with Sikafloor® 262 AS N Thixo. The back of house areas was coated with Sikafloor® 264. Joints were sealed with Sikaflex® Pro3 WF. Column bases were grouted with Sika® Armorex Armorcrete. Total area with SIka products is 5000 m2.
