Mapei System enables fast and safe floor installation at Sunningdale SEN School

A MAPEI system has been used by Titan Flooring to promote a fast and safe floor installation at Sunningdale SEN School in Sunderland. The project, which included installation of vinyl and carpet tiles throughout the £12.5m newbuild school, was completed for Kier, a UK infrastructure services, construction and property group.

Sunningdale SEN School is the city’s only specialist school for children with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties, aged between 2-11. The new school replaces an existing facility and now provides extensive therapy provisions including rebound therapy, hydrotherapy pool, sensory facilities and soft play. Each of the new classrooms includes a large storage area for mobility equipment and, across the wider site, the school benefits from informal play and grass playing fields, alongside a wetlands area, nature trail and habitat area.

During the installation, Titan Flooring installed Mapeproof One Coat – a single application damp-proof membrane – to protect the new floorcoverings from residual moisture. All-purpose primer, ECO Prim T Plus, was then applied to bond the damp-proof membrane to the levelling and smoothing compound – Latexplan Trade.

Says Mapei: ‘ECO Prim T Plus features a solvent-free, low odour formulation, with EMICODE EC1 Plus for very low emissions of VOC. Following installation of the Latexplan Trade – which benefits from a low odour and protein-free formulation – Titan used two Mapei adhesives for the floor installation: solvent-free Ultrabond ECO Tack TX+ carpet tile tackifier and Ultrabond ECO V4 Evolution all-in-one adhesive for the vinyl. Both adhesives also feature a very low VOC formulation, with EMICODE EC1 Plus certification.’
