F Ball - Offices

SUBFLOOR preparation products from F Ball and Co, have been used in the refurbishment of luxury office space in Manchester City Centre. Contractors specified the products for a 720sq m flooring installation at Empress Business Centre in Manchester city centre, reportedly completed to the aesthetically pleasing standard required to showcase the building for existing and potential customers.

Contractors from Goulson Furnishing Fitters, in Stockport, began the installation by removing the existing carpet tiles from all communal areas including stairs, corridors and the main reception area. The suitably dry and clean floor was then prepared with a coat of Stopgap P131 primer, before a 3mm thickness of F Ball’s Stopgap green bag was applied in the areas that required slight smoothing.

New carpet was then installed using Styccobond F3. ‘The flooring market’s leading adhesive’, F Ball says, Styccobond F3 is a water-based rubber/resin product compatible with nearly 70% of all floorcoverings in the F Ball recommended adhesives guide. The product reportedly offered excellent wet grab and an early build-up of strength for the carpet in all areas, including the impressive open plan reception area.

Stuart Goulson, managing director at Goulson Furnishing Fitters, comments: ‘We regularly use F. Ball products as they guarantee the high quality finish and performance our customers expect from us. We use Styccobond F3 in almost all our projects, simply because nothing can beat it.’
