Bomanite of Tulsa, Inc. worked with Alaback Design Associates to specify Bomanite Revealed Exposed Aggregate System to produce a slip resistant surface for a splash pad on the City of Tulsa, Parks Department project Manion Park.
Manion Park Splash pad used recycled glass as the aggregate to produce the vibrant paving option that offered excellent slip resistance for kids on the playground. Saw-cuts where placed between colors to produce a clean break point for each color on the 2,800 SF splash pad.
Bomanite Revealed is an architectural exposed concrete with varying exposure depths using decorative aggregates that are bond in a unique binder and apply to plastic concrete. The Bomanite Revealed System utilizes pre-blended binders, light fast pigments, topical treatments and advanced application procedures to produce a finished product that showcases the seeded aggregate. Unlike most surface seeded installations, Bomanite Revealed provides 100% exposure of the decorative aggregate with no native sands detracting from the finished appearance. The final product is unique alternate to other decorative concrete finishes while producing a monolithic concrete slab with a low life cycle cost due to the pre-aged nature of the surface. Bomanite Revealed is suited for exterior applications—anywhere that improved wear resistance for light to moderate-duty vehicular or foot traffic combined with an architectural finish is necessary.
