Schools & Sports Centres

Whether it be primary, middle, secondary, TAFE or University or sporting facilities, health and safety are amongst the highest of necessity within these environments. Controlling water around walkways, maintaining quality/natural appearance and cleanliness of hygiene on concrete areas either outside or within bathroom facilities can be difficult to maintain and time consuming in keeping clean including the removal of spillages, mould and urine ingress.

The areas of concern in school and sporting facility environments are:

  • Bacteria/pathogens that appears on and within the concrete matrix
  • Growth of mould, mildew and fungi
  • Moisture Ingress
  • Health risks to students, staff, visitors, players and patrons
  • Urine ingress
  • Contaminates and odours within the concrete
  • Sanitising/hygiene – cleaning programme
  • Dust and cleaning
  • Concrete wearability
  • Slip resistance

These products are what we would recommend (but not limited to) for concrete concerns.

DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL® is government certified (APVMA approval no. 60195/56867) to kill bacteria/pathogens with a 99.99% kill rate for Golden Staph, E-coli, Listeria and Salmonella on and within the concrete matrix. It will stay active killing these bacteria/pathogens for a minimum of 5 years.

It produces a sanitised environment on the surface and within the concrete matrix with an internal moisture suppressant – the best solution for bacterial control and mould suppression.

DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL® will prevent unwanted fluids entering new concrete and purging containments and odours that are held within the existing concrete matrix and a continuous sanitising process.

This assists in high infection control protocols.

DEFLECTA MOISTURE SUPPRESSANT® is a clear aqueous born internal moisture barrier/treatment, protecting concrete for smaller applications such as office, warehouse, commercial/domestic and retail areas.

DEFLECTA® REPEL seals and preserves natural stone, brick, slate, masonry and precast concrete for internal and external surfaces.

It is a hydrophobic water repellent which provides a hard wearing breathable barrier to the surface.

DEFLECTA® SURFACE BINDER is a water borne concrete sealer designed for use on concrete to provide a clear semi-gloss surface seal. It can be used internally for commercial or light industrial applications. HACCP Australia endorses this floor surfacing as being suitable in food processing and food handling environments in facilities that operate in accordance with the HACCP based Food Safety Programme. 

DEFLECTA® BOTANY Will suppress the growth of mould, mildew and fungi and reduce build-up of surface dirt and soiling over time on; grout, cemetitious material and concrete to most wet areas of high humidity and moisture ie; in particular showers, kitchens, laundries, bathrooms, food processing and warehouses.

It works at keeping the surface clean while preserving the natural appearance of the treated material, support hygiene requirements and reduce the vigorous cleaning protocols in time and cost of commercial grade cleaning products. 

DEFLECTA® TOPEL is an inorganic silicon-containing material concrete treatment that increases both density and surface hardness and is hydrophobic - providing increased wear and slip resistance. This product is a densifier that penetrates and bonds with the Portland cement components of the concrete and it becomes abrasive resistant and damage from water contaminants is reduced.  Deflecta Topel™ will not alter the appearance of the concrete when applied. However, with time and wear, the slab will improve its appearance compared to an untreated slab and the concrete function will alter as a hydrophobic slip resistant surface is created.
