A PM Silicone roof restoration is a great way to give your roof a new life. Your roof will receive a new, completely seamless waterproof membrane that will last for years. Like any roof substrate, however, constant wear and tear could lead to a shortened lifespan for the roof or safety hazards. Our Silicone Walkway System helps offer roofs with heavy foot traffic even more life and some added safety features.
What is the PG 700/750 System
The PM PG 700/750 system is comprised of two parts. The first part is Pro-Grip 700 Walkway Coating, which comes in a five-gallon bucket. PG-700 utilizes our high-build silicone formula and is a bright, safety yellow color. That yellow color helps promote safety by clearly marking the safest and most efficient flow of foot traffic.
The second part of the system is Pro-Grip 750 Walkway Granules. The granules are an integral part of the mixture because they offer a rigid, non-slip surface to ensure the safety of those on the roof. Many roofs can become slick when wet, and the Pro-Grip Walkway System’s non-slip surface adds another layer of protection. As a bonus, the granules and coating combined enhance the UV resistance of your roof!
Creating a Safer Walkway
The first benefit to our silicone walkway system is safety. In recent years, rooftop accidents and even deaths have risen at an alarming rate. We recognized these dangers and created a simple yet effective non-slip solution. Our PG-700/750 walkway system is a natural extension of our existing silicone roof coatings and provides a slip-resistant walkway for building staff and work crews.
Protect Your Roof
The second benefit to our silicone walkway system is abrasion resistance. Any roof will see more damage where there is more foot traffic. PG-700 is a more durable silicone and can absorb more friction than a typical silicone top coat. The walkway path holds up even longer when you add the non-slip granules to the equation. When combined, the two products offer a safe, durable coating made to last decades.
The final benefit of the PG-700/750 system is that it is easy to install. Simply roll-apply PG-700 Walkway Coating over the desired walkway area. Next, generously apply PG-750 Walkway Granules within a few minutes of coating application (if doing two coats, apply after the second coat). After the granules are applied, inspect the walkway surface and re-apply as needed to obtain a continuous film of granules. Every area of coating should be completely covered in granules. Once coated and covered in granules, you will have a safe, abrasion resistant walkway for years. You can see exactly what this looks like here.
