The building which is situated in an old antique warehouse required an industrial-looking, durable floor finish to complement the industrial glam surroundings.

Throughout the entire club, the décor and old non-durable floor finish is very distinctive and unlike any other club in the area. The bespoke design focuses strongly on the club’s industrial setting and incorporates unique elements including, exposed brick walls, iron beams and a stunningly lit copper bar. The club owners deliberated on the durable floor finishes available to them and having discussed their requirements with National Flooring it was decided that the Degafloor QT system would be ideal for the area.

The Degafloor QT system is a blend of resin and quartz which is trowel applied to provide an extremely functional and durable floor finish. The client decided to go ahead using two different shades of grey to help create a subtle blend to enhance the industrial setting with the added benefit of creating a durable floor finish that was also practical.


Public, which has a capacity of 429 has a bar area situated at the entrance of the club. The concrete floor which had previously been painted could not withstand the high footfall levels. The Degafloor QT system offers exceptional durability and will provide years of trouble-free use.

The system, which is hand trowelled, was installed by National Flooring’s trained and experienced operatives over two nights at the beginning of the week when the club is closed. The system is fully cured within just two hours; therefore members of staff at the club could continue their daily activities, as usual, the following day.

Anna Simpson, National Flooring comments, “Public is an extremely prestigious club in Chelsea and is often frequented by celebrities, therefore we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to showcase our products and ability and create a durable floor finish for the bar. As with all our installations we set high standards to ensure our clients receive a high-quality installation and service. We hope that Public now have a durable floor finish to match their high profile and image and that it provides the practicality that is required by these popular night-time venues. “  

Tony Cela, Public, commented, “Public nightclub has an industrial setting and we try to complement this by matching the design of the club to its surroundings. The floor we had previously did not withstand the club’s environment therefore we had to look for something much more resilient. National Flooring has provided an excellent floor finish that not only will give us years of trouble-free use but is ideally suited to the clubs interior design. The installation was carried out with extreme professionalism and with no disruption to the running of the club.”
