UltraFloor goes the extra mile

CSLL Contract Flooring Ltd have used Level IT Top to install a 700m² floor at a new Hyundai garage workshop in Southampton.

With over 75,000 employees and 5,000 dealerships and showrooms worldwide, Hyundai have continued to grow in popularity and in 2017 they achieved a sales growth of 9.8%, putting them 8% ahead of their UK business plan and increasing their market share from 3.35% to 3.45% – a figure which not all car manufacturers can boast.

To keep up with demand, Hyundai have opened a number of new dealerships including Richmond Hyundai in Southampton. The dealership not only prides itself on its excellent customer but the aftersales care package they also offer.

In order to enhance their Servicing, Body Shop and MOT offerings, a new 700m² workshop was built on-site at the Southampton dealership.

CSLL Contract Flooring Ltd, the chosen contractor for this project, used Level IT Top heavy duty surface finish floor leveller to complete the subfloor preparation at this busy location.

Suitable for both commercial and industrial applications, Level IT Top is a polymer rich, high strength single part, cementitious smoothing underlayment with exceptional abrasion resistance.

Level IT Top boasts a coverage of approximately 3.1m² at 5mm, has a working time of 30-40 minutes, can receive foot traffic after just 2-3 hours and forklift traffic after 36 hours – keeping downtime to a minimum and allowing business to resume quickly.

Level IT Top was applied by trowel to the concrete and cement substrate and was left as a finished wear surface before a resin coating was applied 48 hours later.

A quick response to a site visit request, ongoing support and communication and cost-effective solutions, were just some of the reasons why CSLL Contract Flooring Ltd chose to use UltraFloor for the installation.

For more information on UltraFloor’s range of subfloor preparation materials, please contact their team of Technical experts by email or by calling 01827 254402.

UltraCrete provides exceptional service to water industry

OnSite Central Limited have used UltraCrete Perma-Soil and Instant Road Repair to install and repair a number of water metres throughout South Staffordshire and the West Midlands.

Part of South Staffordshire PLC, OnSite Central Limited is a long established and respected company with vast experience in the water services industry. As part of their Contract partnership with South Staff Water, OnSite have installed and repaired thousands of water metres across the country using Perma-Soil soil stabiliser and Instant Road Repair cold lay asphalt 6mm and 10mm grades.

Perma-Soil is a soil stabiliser which turns excavated spoil into usable backfill within minutes, eliminating the need for virgin aggregates and vastly reducing the amount of materials that would traditionally be sent to landfill – a fundamental requirement set out in the Utility WRAP Agreement.

Since Perma-Soil eliminates the need to haul away spoil, all the associated costs, such as purchasing expensive backfill material, running extra vehicles and disposing of spoil, are all eradicated.

Ideal for small utility repairs, Perma-Soil is available in 25kg and 12.5kg units, the perfect size for most utility excavations, and is A9 Approved, proving its use across the entire UK network.

Instant Road Repair cold lay asphalt provided the perfect surface finish for the water metre installs and repairs. HAPAS Approved since 2002, Instant Road Repair offers a first time permanent repair and is instantly trafficable causing minimal disruption to pedestrians and motorists alike.

Available in two grades – 6mm for repairs in footways, footpaths and cycle tracks and 10mm for permanent repairs in type 3 and 4 roads – Instant Road Repair can be applied in all weathers and is available in 25kg resealable tubs so you can pop the lid back on for use another day.

On the project’s success, Mick Clark, Head of External Operations at OnSite, commented: “The overall service from Instarmac is exceptional – everything from placing an order, to delivery, to use of the products.”

Mick continued: “Instarmac supported us throughout the project and offered free training for our contractors – something that was paramount to the success of the project.”

UltraCrete’s Area Sales Manager for the Midlands, David Youell, and Technical Field Support and Training Manager, Nick Holmes, visited each depot to carry out product training with a number of contractors to guarantee confidence of application throughout the project. This invaluable service is just one of many available from UltraCrete. Find out more about UltraCrete’s Site Support Team and their other offerings.
