Short description
An anti-slip coating suitable for heavy duty use, exposure to oil contamination and frequent high pressure cleaning was required. Samples of Remmers systems were applied for client assessment prior to application. The surface was prepared by vacuum shot blasting the area prior to the application of Remmers Epoxy FAS 100. Remmers Epoxy Flex PH, incorporating a quartz profile was chosen as a final coating.

The structure showed cracks in some places, for which there were different causes. Improved statics and higher load capacity were achieved by stiffening the structures, frictional connection of the disturbed foundation and decoupling the components gate, passage hall and gate houses components. Particularly on the western side, intense blackening of the rock surface had built up, which was strongly interlocked with the ground. The deposits were composed of a mixture of soot and plaster. The cleaning process carried out in 1990 with the help of water could only result in a superficial cleaning. In 2002, the newly developed method of particle beam cleaning and cleaning by laser made it possible to remove soot and plaster without destroying the original surface.
