Vector Arena Auckland has new floor coating

Following the BMX World Champs held at Vector on a purpose built track, Vector decided it was time to repaint the floor even though after all the construction and removal of the dirt and concrete track had not damaged the floor coating.

Tuff Floor WB Epoxy had been applied to the floor some 4 years ago and has withstood the constant use during events and concerts with little or no damage of wear. This remarkable thin film epoxy flooring system has proven to be a tough and durable floor coating and is only being redone at this stage as part of the event contract and to allow for a colour change from off white to dark charcoal.

The pictures show the degree of stress placed on the floor during construction and removal of the track and subsequent preparation and the start of coating operations. This was all achieved in a very tight time constraint and the arena back in action within days.
