Project Name: Skate Park, Tasmania
Industry: Local Government

The surface is anticipated to get a good workout from the skaters. The finish required called for a durable surface that could withstand a harsh seaside environment.

Helix was used in the 75mm slab at a rate of 7kg/m3 in 25MPa concrete. The Helix replaced one layer of SL72 Mesh.

Safety for the park users is a priority and the local council did have concerns about steel fibres ‘sticking up’ and injuring users. Using conventional finishing techniques there was not a single fibre in sight and because no mesh had to be handled, two-thirds of the Park remained in use during the slab construction.
