Holding court

F BALL & Co products have been used to install carpet and vinyl floorcoverings for the refurbishment of Grade A Listed building, The Russell Institute in Paisley, Scotland.

Base Flooring Solutions, were contracted to install 700sq m of floorcoverings in the building, which has been refurbished for use as council offices.

Firstly, Stopgap 1200 Pro smoothing underlayment was applied over the total area. The properties of Stopgap 1200 Pro reportedly allow it to be dry enough to receive new floorcoverings from four hours.

Stopgap 1200 is said to be designed for use directly over old adhesive residues without the need for priming. It is suitable for use in clinical and biologically sensitive areas such as hospitals, laboratories and clean rooms.

Base Flooring Solutions used Styccobond F3 flooring adhesive, which is claimed to have high strength, good wet grab and is suitable for the installation of most carpets.
Finally, Styccobond F44, a solvent-free acrylic emulsion adhesive claimed to have strong initial tack and high bond strength, was used to secure the vinyl floorcoverings in time for the opening of the new council offices.

John Gavin, md of Base Flooring Solutions said: ‘F. Ball products always enable us to create a long lasting and attractive floor finish and this job was no different. We are very glad that our F. Ball representative recommended we use this range of products – we’re very pleased with the end result of our refurbishment of The Russell Institute.‘
