2,000sq m warehouse renovated ‘in just 10 days’
ULTRAFLOOR says it’s provided Specialist Screed (Flooring) Solutions with expert subfloor preparation materials to complete a 2,000sq m flooring project at DHM Plastics in Kent.
Specialist Screed (Flooring) Solutions are known nationally for their floor zone expertise in the commercial, industrial, and domestic sectors. Their extensive knowledge and experience put them in place to install 2,000sq m of Vebro EP Epoxy High Build Coating System at DHM Plastic’s warehouse in Lenham, Kent.
The biggest challenge facing this project was the tight timescale Specialist Screed (Flooring) Solutions had to work to. The clients needed the project to be completed during their Christmas shutdown which meant there was only 10 days to complete the work before the machinery needed to be moved back in.
After securing the project, Steve Fincham, head of specialist projects, sought professional advice from UltraFloor’s area sales manager for the South, Crystal Hopkins. After visiting site, Crystal recommended the use of Prime IT Multi-surface Primer and Level IT Top – expert subfloor preparation materials that would meet the clients’ requirements.
Says the company: ‘Formulated to promote adhesion to all UltraFloor smoothing underlayments, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer reduces pinholing, minimising the risk of costly failures. With a coverage rate of 200sq m at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.’
UltraFloor continues: ‘Level IT Top is a polymer rich, high strength, single part, cementitious smoothing underlayment which incorporates recycled raw materials. Formulated for exceptional abrasion resistance, Level IT Top has been designed for use as a finished wear surface in both industrial and commercial applications.
‘Mixed easily onsite with water, Level IT Top can be trowel or pump applied and is suitable for use in heavily trafficked areas such as warehouses, storage areas, corridors and factory units. What’s more, Level IT Top has a working time of 30-40 minutes, can receive foot traffic after two-to-three hours and forklift traffic after as little as 36 hours – perfect for projects with a quick turnaround such as this one.’
‘We, and the client, were impressed with the smooth finish and robustness of the finished project,’ said Steve Fincham.
