Flowpoint Restores Life to Industrial Quarter

Instarmac’s Estonian partner, RoadService, have supplied UltraScape Flowpoint to grout over 3,000m² of paving at the beautiful and historic Rotermann Quarter.

Known as the ‘City in the Heart of Tallinn’ Rotermann Quarter is located between Old Town, The Port and Viru Square and is referred to as the Industrial Quarter thanks to its rich manufacturing history.

The Industrial Quarter went through rapid development during the 19th century, introducing a variety of factories, mills and stores to the area. Many of these buildings are still standing today and the quarter has recently celebrated its 185th birthday.

Many of the older industrial buildings have been given new functions, including the area where Flowpoint was used, which will now be the home to offices, apartments and shops.

Stone installation company, Kivikuvand OÜ chose to use Flowpoint rapid set flowable grout to grout 3,090m² of paving in this beautiful and unique location. Part of the UltraScape Mortar Paving System, Flowpoint has been independently tested to British Standard 7533 and has been developed over a number of years to provide a durable finish which will not crack or stain.

Flowpoint is flowable grout which allows for large areas of paving to be grouted quickly. The flowable nature of the product means it is equally suited to grouting small cobbles as it is large paving tiles – ideal for projects such as this where a combination of paving was used.

What’s more, Flowpoint can receive foot traffic in 1 hour and vehicular traffic in 4 hours which makes it ideal for projects where minimal disruption and early trafficking is essential.

Andrus Sibul, Executive Director of Kivikuvand OÜ, commented: “I was impressed by the simplicity of the installation, price and local service.”

Rotermann City is the latest in a long line of prestigious projects for Flowpoint. UltraScape’s Mortar Paving System has been specified and used at Tallinn Old Town, MBR City, City Walk and Opera House in Dubai, Roxy Cinema in New Zealand and MediaCity, Savoy Hotel and Bullring Shopping Centre in the UK.
