Spiceball Leisure Centre

The design team sought an alternative coating system to acrylated rubber to use on the walls and ceilings in the swimming pool and changing room areas. The coating would need to provide a functionally effective barrier for the two environments both of which experience high humidity and high temperatures.

The Challenge

The aim of this project was to develop a new leisure centre in Banbury Spiceball Leisure Centre. Kier Moss was the main Contractor as part of a selected consortium, along with Parkwood Project Management, Parkwood Leisure, and the architect Burke Rickhards. The design team sought an alternative coating system to acrylated rubber to use on the walls and ceilings in the swimming pool and changing room areas. The coating would need to provide a functionally effective barrier for the two environments both of which experience high humidity and high temperatures.

The Solution

Liquid Plastics Steridex and Sterisheen systems were trialled, specified for the project, and applied on a range of substrates including plasterboard, plaster, blockwork, and galvanized soffits. Both Steridex and Sterisheen are waterborne, modified acrylic, highly elastomeric, hygienic coatings. The programme for completion was very tight but the low odour nature of Liquid Plastics coatings, coupled with careful planning, enabled multiple trades to work in close proximity within the area under construction.

The Benefits

Steridex and Sterisheen systems represent a cost effective solution that creates an effective vapour barrier. They are also highly elastomeric and contain a non-leaching, organic, in-film preservative. Steridex and Sterisheen are durable, cleanable, show good resistance to a range of chemicals, and can withstand impact without flaking and cracking. Both products are also low odour and extremely versatile.
