Flowpoint Paves the Way in Tallinn Old Town3rd June 2016
Instarmac’s Estonian partner, Roadservice, have secured an 8,000m² paving restoration project of the beautiful Viru Street in Tallinn Old Town.
Viru Street is known for its beautiful entrance gates. These iconic gates were built in the 14th century as part of the town’s defence system, with the number of gates increasing to 8 by the 16th century.
Over the years, the entrance to Old Town widened and as a consequence many of the gates have since been demolished. However the corner gates are still standing and have become symbolic of Tallinn Old Town.
The restoration of this fairytale street required a grout that would withstand the constant footfall of visitors and residents whilst providing a finish that would be aesthetically pleasing and fitting of such a historical area.
Flowpoint rapid set flowable paving grout, part of the UltraScape Mortar Paving System, was chosen for this project and will be used to grout 8,000m² of paving in Viru Street.
Flowpoint is a flowable grout which allows for large areas of paving to be grouted quickly. It can be used to grout joints from 3-5mm to 50mm and as deep as 200mm in one application. What’s more, Flowpoint can receive foot traffic in 1 hour and vehicular traffic in 4 hours – ideal for busy towns such as this one.
Viru Street is the latest in a long line of prestigious projects in the UltraScape portfolio. Recent projects include Opera House, MBR City and City Walk in Dubai, Roxy Cinema in New Zealand, MediaCity, Savoy Hotel and the Bullring Shopping Centre in the UK.
