Ultrafloor - Refurbishment
ULTRAFLOOR customer, Branagan Flooring Services, has completed subfloor preparation at the prestigious Old Trafford cricket ground – home to the Lancashire County Cricket Club. With a stadium capacity of 26,000, Old Trafford Cricket Ground is one of the largest cricket venues in the UK and has played host to international matches since 1884.
Lancashire County Cricket Club – one of 18 first class county clubs within England and Wales - had their first match at Old Trafford cricket ground in 1864 and have been playing there ever since.
The current flooring in the Home and Away balconies had failed and needed to be replaced. With fixtures scheduled months in advance, it was crucial the new flooring was installed in between games to eliminate any disruption to the thousands of spectators.
In light of this, CFA member and commercial flooring specialists, Branagan Flooring Services, had just six days to complete the 80sq m flooring project.
With such a small window of time to complete the project, Branagan Flooring Services needed confidence that its chosen subfloor preparation materials would perform without any issues. With this in mind, it selected UltraFloor’s Level IT Bond and DPM IT to complete the installation.
Once the failed flooring had been removed and the concrete subfloor scabbled, Level IT Bond was applied at 6mm before the application of DPM IT.
‘The exceptional adhesion characteristics of Level IT Bond make it suitable for use over various subfloors and substrates, including old adhesive residues, in commercial and domestic environments,’ says UltraFloor.
‘Its low odour formulation means Level IT Bond is equally suited to confined areas proving particularly popular in the education, health and hospitality sectors.
‘With a set time of 90-120 minutes, Level IT Bond can receive bonded floorcoverings after four hours, making this a suitable floor leveller for projects with a tight deadline, such as this one.
What’s more, because Level IT Bond is available as a two-component system, it takes the guesswork out of mixing, reducing site errors and guaranteeing a perfect application every time.
‘DPM IT is a two-component, solvent-free epoxy resin system for use as a surface DPM. Designed to provide protection against subfloor moisture, DPM IT has a pot-life of 45-75 minutes, a cure time of five hours and boasts a 98% RH floor moisture tolerance.’
