Sparkles Roller Rink

Marietta, GA - March 2004

Project Description

The Sparkles Roller Rink in Marietta, Georgia, required a repair solution for their cracked and deteriorated roller rink floor surface. The concrete contractor offered a topping slab over waterproof membrane solution, using conventional steel reinforcement and saw-cuts on 15-foot centers.  Due to previous positive experience with the FORTA-FERRO®, Prince suggested the fiber alternate as the best opportunity to approach a smooth surface on this very large 81 ft. x 167 ft. floor. FORTA-FERRO® 2-1/4″ was used at a dosage of 7.5 lbs. / cu. yd. in this 4″ thick topping. The FORTA-FERRO® offered no placement difficulties or surface blemishes for the laser-screed and machine troweled finish.


2010 Update

The FORTA-FERRO® reinforced floor achieved super-flat caliber results, and remains crack-free after five years in service. The Sparkles Roller Rink repair project also received the 2004 Award of Excellence in the Restoration Category by the Georgia Chapter of the American Concrete Institute.

2020 Update

Owners states that even after 15 years, the rink is holding up remarkably well, with no major repairs.

Key Points:
