Leicester Tigers Link Bridge

Leicester Tigers Link Bridge

The newly fabricated link bridge connecting the Hotel Brooklyn and the Leicester Tigers Welford Road Stadium has been installed this week. Featuring a 3 coat protection paint system, including a polysiloxane top coat and our very own Permagrip PU anti-slip surfacing, the new footbridge is a welcome addition to both the stadium and adjacent hotel.

What is a polysiloxane top coat?

Polysiloxane top coats are usually a resin based hybrid coating designed for higher UV and corrosion resistance than standard polyurethane top coats. They also offer the best finish available, creating a smooth and even appearance. For more information on the system used on the project, please contact us directly on 01744 26526 or enquiries@nlwgroup.com.

Permagrip PU Anti-Slip Surfacing

Permagrip PU Bridge

Permagrip PU is a multi-component polyurethane resin designed for use with high friction aggregates that creates an anti-slip surface than almost eliminates the risk of slips. The UK Slip Resistance Group provides reference values for slip resistance using the pendulum test method:

PTV (Pendulum Test Value)

25 – 35

35 – 65

65 +

Potential for Slip



Extremely Low

Independently tested, Permagrip PU offers a PTV (Pendulum Test Value) of 70+ in both wet & dry conditions. Permagrip PU is available with a range of different aggregate types and grades, including Chinese and Guyanan Bauxite, Flint and Granite.
