David Lloyd, Exeter

V Tiles have installed tiles throughout David Lloyd in Exeter and used ProLevel One to complete subfloor preparation.

David Lloyd the UK’s leading health & fitness group scheduled the opening of their Exeter club in December 2010. The new build facility required sub-floor preparation in several areas before tiling commenced. Available through an UltraTileFix account, the UltraFloor commercial flooring range of sub-floor preparation products provide cost-effective, high quality solutions. 

V Tiles, the contractor who won the prestigious contract, applied levelling compounds, ProLevel One  and Level IT Super30. Both are rapid setting, polymer modified and protein free. UltraFloor Level IT Super30 has a set time of only 30 minutes – perfect for fast-track applications!

Some surface areas were repaired with Patch IT, UltraFloor’s fast setting and rapid drying mortar. An ideal solution for applying ‘first aid’ to many different types of defect, including holes,  depressions and cracks.

V Tiles also used UltraTileFix ProPrimer to enhance bond strength and prime before applying any adhesive. As an additive ProPrimer enhances performance of UltraTileFix adhesives and grouts that have not been previously modified.

The project was a total of 3000m² and 4 different sized porcelain tiles were fixed to the floors using UltraTileFix’s ProRapid RS. The walls were finished with porcelain, mosaics and Tethlan panels, all fixed with UltraTileFix ProFlex SPES.

Both powder adhesives are expertly formulated with exceptional bond strength, flexibility and fast setting capabilities, ProRapid RS is ideal for most porcelain and natural stone applications.

ProFlex SPES is the extended set single part flexible floor and wall tile adhesive, suitable for interior/exterior use and in both wet & dry conditions. Specially formulated with extended workability for large format and intricate porcelain, ceramic and natural stone tile work, with exceptional adhesion and flexural capacity, it is ideal for situations where vibration may occur.

Project Manager, Clive Cawood states that: “the fast setting properties of Level IT Super30 and Patch IT were of exceptional benefit. They allowed sub-floor preparation of busy access areas to be completed efficiently and effectively.”
