Levels and fixes at Carleton Manor Park
PENRITH Tile Centre has completed a second project for Cumbrian Homes, using a range of TILEMASTER ADHESIVES products. In this latest development, at Carleton Manor Park, Penrith designed and installed all tiled spaces throughout the Manor’s nine apartments and their communal areas. Surfaces specified included 450sq mm Carrera grey marble-effect tiles, with Planked Porcelain black border feature tiles. Tilemaster Rapid Level 30 was used to prepare and level substrates - to give a finish that was reportedly tile-ready within 60 minutes. Tilemaster’s anti-fracture mat was also specified, said to provide extra stability and to absorb movement under the tiled surfaces. For fixing, the Tilemaster specification included Trade Flexi Rapid adhesive and Grout 3000, in a mid-grey tone.
Carleton Manor Park is set in the heart of the Eden Valley, with views to the Pennines and Lake District fells. It includes luxury new homes throughout the manor building, two flanking buildings to either side and further detached properties.
During planning phase site visits, John Williams from Penrith Tiles measured and assessed the Manor installation areas, ensuring that all materials specified complied with current legislation.
All interior designs were created by Penrith-based Satu Interiors; the mono-toned scheme is said to reflect the buildings’ grandeur, with stainless steel finishes combining with contemporary floral wall finishes, and softened with sumptuous fabrics. The grey veining of the Carrera porcelain and black borders reflect the colour scheme and glamorous interior style, Tilemaster says.
