‘The drinks are on UltraFloor down the pub’

RIDING Floors, a contractor with more than 50 years’ experience creating hospitality venue floors, has used UltraFloor Prime IT Multi-surface Primer and Level IT Bond to install an LVT floor at The Heist pub in Elland, West Yorkshire.

Located in a former Lloyds Bank, hence the name, The Heist has been lovingly created by two local business owners who’ve transformed the building into a smart and atmospheric pub. Earlier this year, the bar and daytime coffee bar was transformed by flooring contractor, Riding Floors.

The challenge
The team at Riding Floors required rapid drying expert subfloor preparation materials that would provide a super smooth finish to install the LVT floorcovering.

The solution
Says UltraFloor: ‘With a reputation built on quality workmanship, Riding Floors knew UltraFloor would be the ideal subfloor preparation materials to use on this project. To prepare the concrete substrate for the application of Level IT Bond, the contractors first applied a coat of Prime IT Multi-surface Primer.

‘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 200sqm at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.

‘Once fully dried, Level IT Bond was applied at a 3-8mm depth across the 180sq m bar area. Level IT Bond is a rapid curing, high performance, free flowing two-part smoothing underlayment. It has exceptional adhesion characteristics making it suitable for use over a wide variety of subfloors and substrates, including old adhesive residues.’

UltraFloor continues: ‘This versatile and moisture-tolerant floor-leveller has a set time of between 90-120 minutes, can receive foot traffic in as little as between 1.5-2 hours, and can receive bonded floorcoverings after four hours – suitable for projects where a quick turnaround is essential.

‘With a coverage of about 5sq m at 3mm and an exceptional flow, it’s unsurprising Level IT Bond is a firm favourite for today’s flooring contractor.’

The company adds: ‘Owing to the rapid setting properties of Level IT Bond, the entire project was finished in one week.’

On completion, Danny Ambler, contracts manager at Riding Floors commented: ‘The customer loved the finished job. Level IT Bond is a great product, flows well and can be used on multiple substrates.’
