Bomanite Licensee, Jeffco Concrete Contractors, Inc. located in Tuscaloosa, AL worked with the Blakeney Company to install almost 9,000 square feet of Bomacron Imprinted Concrete. The pattern chosen was large Ashlar Slate for the pool decking of the University Village Apartments.
Residents at the University Village Apartments have a choice of 8 pools to swim in, lounge in and even to play pool in. Bomanite Coquina Color Hardener was used with a mixture of Bomanite Release Agent of Sand and White to achieve the cohesive colors and provide the realistic look of slate.
The light colors chosen for the pool decking also contain a higher solar reflectance. Solar Reflectance is the ratio of the amount of solar radiation reflected from a material to the amount shone on the material. The higher the Solar Reflectance the greater the amount of light from both ultraviolet and the visible spectrum is reflected from the substrate. This is also known as Albedo. The Bomanite Color Hardeners and Release Agents in this project would qualify for a LEED rated project.
