TTA member and long-standing UltraTile account, The Great Northern Tiling Company has successfully rejuvenated The Oasis Food Court, part of the Meadowhall shopping centre. Attracting 25 million visitors per year the centre is one of the busiest in England and its dining area is one of the centre’s great attractions.
Tiling was completed using one of UltraTile’s best-selling cementitious adhesives, ProFlex SP. A single part product, polymer modified for increased bond strength and enhanced performance. The adhesive allows a 60 minute pot life and for grouting to begin after 2.5 hours. Perfectly suited for natural stone and regularly used by The Great Northern Tiling Company, ProFlex SP was an ideal choice for fixing the required slate tiles.
The slate tiles were grouted using UltraTile FlexJoint. A product suitable for joint widths from 1mm to 20mm, FlexJoint is simple to use and available in a choice of colours. To compliment the slate tiles, grey was chosen for use on this project. FlexJoint is specially formulated to provide a hygienic finish that is mould resistant and water repellent.
Since the project’s completion, many shoppers have enjoyed dining in the comfort of the new inviting food court.
