Subfloor materials make country park renovation a walk in the park

FLOORING specialists Laceys Floors and Walls have used UltraFloor Level IT Hydra Bond to install 170sq m of flooring at Rushcliffe Country Park.

Green Flag award winners since 2007, Rushcliffe Country Park is a popular visitor attraction in Nottinghamshire. Work is underway to renovate the visitor centre including staff office and toilets.
Flooring specialists, Laceys Floors and Walls was the contractor commissioned to install 170sq m of flooring throughout the visitor centre.

To complete the installation, Laceys Floors and Walls needed subfloor materials that would provide what’s described as a super smooth finish to avoid trip hazards and would withstand constant trafficking of visitors.

The solution
To begin, Laceys Floors and Walls applied DPM IT dampproof membrane across the entire 170sq m area. Says the company: ‘DPM IT is a two-component, solvent-free epoxy resin system for use as a surface damp-proof membrane. 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. Once fully cured, the team applied UltraFloor’s latest product innovation, Level IT Hydra Bond to a depth of 3-5mm.’

The company continues: ‘Level IT Hydra Bond is a super polymer modified smoothing compound which utilises UltraFloor’s unique technology – a process which enhances application and boasts unrivalled flow properties. What’s more, each bag of Level IT Hydra Bond also contains 20% recycled material. In addition, Level IT Hydra Bond can receive bonded floorcoverings after four hours, has an extended working time of 45 minutes for optimal usability and is moisture tolerant and protein-free. To complete the project, Polysafe Wood FX and Verona flooring was installed throughout the visitor centre, office and toilets.’

The flooring was installed with ease at Rushcliffe County Park’s exciting new visitor centre.
‘Level IT Hydra Bond was a real pleasure to work with. It was easy to trowel and float on the floor and knitted together great between mixes. It even went nicely on the previous days screeding,’ says Richard Lacey, director at Laceys Floors and Walls.
