Weber - Offices

MAJOR refurbishment has been undertaken at the Saint-Gobain Weber HQ in Flitwick, Bedfordshire where weberfloor products have being used extensively. The work involved renovation of 240sq m of industrial and commercial floor space.

The Flitwick warehouse project involved the demolition of the old training workshop to make way for a new product storage area. Here the floor area was pre-treated and primed with weberfloor 4716 primer which is designed for use on all substrates prior to application of weberfloor products to achieve a reportedly thin but tight membrane.

Weberfloor 4160 industry top industrial floor screed was then applied to a thickness of 10mm.  Compliant with BS8204 it is a pumpable, rapid hardening and self-smoothing floor screed for use as a surface layer on industrial flooring with a compressive strength of C35 and flexural strength F10. It is said to be especially suitable where renovation time is limited and is ready for foot traffic 2 - 4 hours after application.

In a separate area of the building a new open plan office area has been created. During the preparation stage a slip membrane was installed to create a floating floor and to effectively de-bond from the existing substrate. This was reinforced with alkaline-resistant weberfloor 4945 glass fibre mesh. Mesh is normally used on weak substrates or in case the screed is laid un-bonded.

Fibre-reinforced for added durability, weberfloor 4310 fibre flow was applied to the mesh at 25mm thickness but can be applied up to 50mm. It is said to possess excellent spreading and smoothing characteristics, is suitable for heated or wooden floors and, importantly on this project, could receive foot traffic after only 2 – 4 hours.
