:: Installation requirements
The National Flooring Company were approached by Gourmet Game, a company based in Boston, Lincolnshire, that specialise in the wholesale of game products.
Following the decision to buy a new premises the owner contacted The National Flooring Company for some advice on a suitable resin floor finish for various areas within their new manufacturing unit including the chiller room and cutting room.
The client had concerns with regards to the suitability of the existing substrate and therefore as part of the initial consultation The National Flooring Company undertook strength tests on the concrete. The results highlighted that the substrate did not have the compressive strength needed to accept a resin floor and therefore a new floor screed would need to be installed.
:: Why National Flooring?
To avoid any split responsibility, Gourmet Game asked The National Flooring Company to take responsibility for the installation of the screed. Ardex A35, a polymer floor screed, was installed which then required a cure time of three days.
As part of the project scope the client had also requested that new drainage was included. With assistance from drainage partners, Component Developments, who manufactured the specialist drainage, The National Flooring Company were able to install the drainage as part of the package.
The client had decided that Polyurethane was the appropriate system for the factory floor due to its hard wearing properties and ease of cleaning and as a result Altrocrete Excel HF at 6mm thick was chosen.
The full installation, including screeding, drainage and the resin flooring application was completed in 5 days ensuring that Gourmet Game could continue the fit out and open their new premises without delay.
