Fulham Football Club
Craven Cottage is the name of a sports stadium in the Hammersmith and Fulham area in London that has been the home ground of the association football team Fulham F.C. since 1896. The Stadium is located next to Bishops Park on the banks of the River Thames. During their end of season works Richco were asked to provide our recommendations on various flooring areas throughout the stadium including the entrance lobby, internal walkway areas, ramp areas, tarmac areas and various staircases. The client requested that the entrance areas and walkways required an anti-slip decorative coating throughout.
Richco recommended that Richco Liquid Vinyl was applied in these areas, which is a seamless, self levelling resin system. This system incorporated a PVA flake to provide a decorative anti-slip system. The ramp areas were completed with Richco E-Coat with a decorative flake incorporated. Richco E-Coat is a high build epoxy coating which is hardwearing, chemical resistant and provides a long-lasting anti-slip surface.
The main entrance to the pitch area was completed with Richco Surface Dressing System in yellow. Richco Surface Dressing is a bonded stone system which is designed to give the appearance of loose aggregates without the associated maintenance problems. The finish system provides a hardwearing decorative anti-slip surface.
There were various staircases throughout the stadium which fitted with Richco Fiberglass Stair Treads to provide an anti-slip surface. Yellow Stair Nosings were also installed to the step edge to provide a contrasting color to ensure that these areas complied with DDA regulations.
The completed project met with the client’s requirements in all areas. Richco continue to provide our flooring systems throughout the stadium during their end of season works.
