Concrete Leveling And Repairs For Airport Runways - Lake Charles LA, Beaumont TX, and Lafayette LA
Nothing requires the same level of safety as an international airport runway! Airport runways must be maintained at strict levels to allow aircraft to safely take off and land without damage to the airplanes or injury to passengers.
Having giant slabs of concrete sinking causing planes moving at high rates of speed to slam down on them could spell disaster if the planes landing gears gave way. Fortunately, our poly concrete leveling systems are strong enough to support the weight of a commercial airliner with ease.
Concrete Leveling At Beijing's International Airport
Our foam was used at Beijing International Airport to lift several sunken slabs of concrete that had the potential to cause damage to airplanes moving about the airport. Our partner, HMI, was called in to showcase their foam and essentially prove its capabilities for use on their airport runways as a way of quickly repairing the runways without downtime.
After showing what the foam was capable of, how much weight it was able to withstand, and just the overall integrity of the concrete lifting foam, clearance was given to use the foam on the runway. To this day our foam is the only foam cleared by the FAA for use on international airport runways. That's huge!
More Time To Travel There Than Complete The Concrete Leveling Project
We mentioned that our foam concrete leveling system is fast, but, this trip took HMI roughly a week to travel to the client's site, and only 4 hours to complete the work and allow the airport to become operational again. Yes, only 4 hours!
Our concrete leveling poly foam only takes 20 minutes to cure in most applications allowing you to actually drive on the surface that was treated with it when we leave.
The picture on this page is actually one of the images from that project. You can see how uneven and damaged these concrete runways were.
HMI poly foam is an amazing product that we are proud to offer to the Lake Charles LA, Beaumont TX, and Lafayette LA areas!
