Denso Steelcoat Protects Footbridge Suspension

Winn & Coales Denso Steelcoat 100/400 system was chosen by Hampshire Rigging Services of Romsey to protect the suspension of the footbridge at Thames Ditton Island, Surrey.

For this recently completed project the Denso Steelcoat was applied to a steel wire rope which is fitted to the four  tower tops  from which the footbridge is suspended. The wire rope where the groove fits in is approximately 1 metre in length and 44mm diameter.

Particular attention was given to the application of Denso Steelcoat on the four tower tops and the anchorage bars, which had previously suffered from some corrosion.

Following surface preparation, the Denso Steelcoat system applied by Hampshire Rigging Services consisted of Hi-Tack Primer followed by Densyl Profiling Mastic for filling awkward profiles.  This was then followed by H i-Tack Tape, Ultraseal Tape and a Denso Acrylic top coat.
