BELLS Kia Car Showroom needed to replace the 180m² floor in their showroom within a deadline of 2 weeks. Ceramica Fix Ltd. secured the project and used UltraTile’s range of products to help them achieve the deadline.
The showroom’s concrete substrate was levelled using UltraTile’s Level IT one. Level IT one has a working time of 20-30 minutes and will set within 2-3 hours. It can be applied at thicknesses from 3-50mm and a 25kg bag covers an optimum 5m² at 3mm. The product is protein and ammonia free, shrinkage compensated and polymer modified.
Ceramica Fix Ltd. chose to use UltraTile ProRapid PB – an adhesive that provides a cost effective rapid fix every time – to apply the 450 x 450 grey porcelain tiles. ProRapid PB may be used internally or externally and boasts mould resistant performance and anti-fungal technology. When set, the product is also unaffected by frost. The product can be applied at a bed thickness of between 3-12mm. The adhesive’s open time is 60 minutes and it will be set after just 2 hours drying time.
The showroom floor joints were grouted with FineJoint. Suitable for joint widths from 1mm to 12mm FineJoint is simple to use and available in a choice of colours including grey, the chosen coloured grout for the showroom.
Damion Noble, Managing Director at Ceramica Fix Ltd. explains that ProRapid PB’s rapid setting qualities were extremely important on this project due to the tight timescale. He also states: “It’s an excellent all-round project.” BELLS Kia Car Showroom opened to the public within the deadline of 2 weeks
