The Heritage Clock Tower building located in the seaside suburb of New Brighton, Christchurch has been fully restored and reopened in mid-2020 after it was damaged in the Christchurch Earthquakes of 2011.
After decades of exposure to the seaside environment, cavities had formed in the concrete causing significant corrosion to the structural steel. This caused the tower to be extremely susceptible to damage during the Canterbury Earthquakes in 2011. Major repairs that began in July 2019, have brought this building back to its former glory, complete with the original colour scheme painted in the Equus Keim Granital Mineral coatings system.
The Keim Granital coating is a sustainable, mineral silicate paint, that leaves a durable, colourfast and water-repellent, protective finish on any mineral substrate in both renovations or new construction.
The Mineral silicate coatings will allow the concrete substrate to breathe and extend the life of the coating system by protecting the surface from the severe environmental conditions that are associated with a seaside location.
The Roof Dome on the top of the Clock Tower was also waterproofed with the Chevaline Dexx membrane; a robust, economical waterproofing solution suitable for a variety of situations. Dexx is a liquid applied membrane, with fiberglass reinforcement designed to be tough, flexible and provide a long life waterproofing solution. Chevaline Dexx can be tinted to suit any colour palette but is most commonly used in our standard grey 00-A05.
