Hi-Spec Protective System for Seatown Bridge

CTS Bridges supply their footbridges with a variety of high quality protective finishes depending on the bridge location.  But for a recent bridge installation in Cullen, Morayshire, the requirement was for a paint system to suit a harsh environment due to its exposure to the North Sea.

A new cycle/footbridge was recently installed by CTS Bridges in the town of Cullen, Morayshire.  The new bridge replaces an old concrete structure built in the 1930's which was in very poor condition.  The new bridge forms part of the Moray Coast Tail and is 3m wide to accommodate both cyclists and pedestrians on what is one of the businest footbridges in the area due to its proximity to the beach car park and golf club.  Due to its location next to the North Sea a Series 1900 paint specification for difficult access was used which will give the bridge a life to first major maintenance of 20 years.

The paint system comprised of:

Blast clean to SA3 standard

1 coat HB Epoxy zinc Rich Primer Dpt Item 109 - MDft 50 microns

2 coats HB Epoxy MIO Dpt Item 112 - MSFT 125 microns/coat

1 coat Polyurethane Finish Dpt Item 169 - 870 - MDft 50 microns

Top Coat colour - Powder Blue BS 4800 20C33.

A local resident, Mr David Walker was delighted with the new bridge and commented 'The bridge has been very well received and is something of a talking point among those who use it and who like to visit Cullen.
