A multi-million pound redevelopment of Market Place in Bolton opened in late 2016 featuring an exclusive Light Cinema complex. Helping to create this trendy, VIP entertainment experience, DM Tiling installed porcelain tiles using UltraTile.
Experienced commercial tiler, DM Tiling were contracted to complete this 700sqm project in under 4 months. The areas to be tiled included the high trafficked foyer, toilets and bar. Working with a Dual CI mat substrate throughout, it was first levelled over with flexible floor leveller, Level IT Rapid.
A single part, high strength, rapid drying and curing cementitious smoothing underlayment that boasts specifically formulated UltraTile fibre technology, which aids application and strength resulting in an even, strong and durable base.
The product can be laid at depths from 2mm – 15mm and can be walked on after only 30 minutes! Its rapid drying properties allow for tiling after just 45 minutes providing the ultimate fast-track levelling solution.
A trader’s favourite, rapid setting flexible ProRapid RS cementitious tile adhesive in grey was used to fix the 600 x 400 and 600 x 300 tiles. Sold in 20kg bags, this high strength adhesive can be applied at thicknesses up to 12mm and has a pot life of 1 hour. Tilers may begin grouting 2.5 hours after ProRapid RS has been applied, subject to temperatures and conditions.
All tiles were grouted with UltraTile FlexJoint, a flexible grout for all tile types. Popular with tilers due to its ‘easy wipe clean’ finish it is often requested over cheaper alternatives.
