Project: Brixton Station – Escalator 1 Steelwork Cleaning and Painting
Client: London Underground Limited – L&E Team
Works Value: £26,000
As part of LUL’s 3 Year Escalator Refurbishment plan, we carried out cleaning and painting of the Lower Machine Chamber (4/161) and Upper Machine Chamber (2/316) steelwork on Escalator 1 due to water damage.
Works carried out included stripping off the old paint system to the support steelwork on Escalator 1 using a specified paint stripper prior to carrying out cleaning and preparation work. We then applied a new robust paint system ‘WB epoxy primer’ to prevent further water damage to the steelwork.
Works were carried out by our specialist L&E team who are in possession of all relevant certification including Machine Room Awareness training.
