Due to its fast-track build times, cost-effectiveness and on-site benefits, metal deck construction has become the favoured option for a wide variety of buildings. Growing in popularity, this construction method has increasingly been used in car park projects.
Whilst the structure of car parks can be comparable to other building types, the exposed environment is more aggressive.
To enable the benefits of our products to be used in this sector, we have developed specific product coatings and options to provide a number of car park solutions and engaged with the British Parking Association to share this knowledge.
