CFA members, Midlands Flooring have used UltraFloor’s expert subfloor preparation materials to install 4,000sqm of flooring at a luxury, brand new, care home in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Morar Living is setting a new standard in care homes. Their beautiful new premises, Trinity Manor, has been expertly designed to provide the highest standard of safety and comfort for its residents.
On this beautiful facility, Morar Living say: “The home is modern and the attention to detail is impressive. The high specification and décor of the home has been carefully considered by an interior designer, creating stylish yet comfortable practical and private spaces.”
Morar Living are passionate about providing their guests with luxurious and comfortable homes. As well as providing beautiful surroundings, safety also plays a huge part in their design decisions.
It was imperative that Midlands Flooring chose the best subfloor preparation materials to create a super smooth floor, with no lumps or trip hazards, in preparation for the installation of the chosen carpet, vinyl and LVT floor coverings.
UltraFloor and Midlands Flooring have partnered regularly on several projects with UltraFloor products delivering complete confidence and assurance every time.
Familiar with the outstanding performance of UltraFloor materials, Midlands Flooring were confident they would get the job done with ease and deliver the results needed on time.
Before any preparation work began, the team carried out thorough moisture testing to check the subfloor relative humidity. Once satisfied, the subfloor was mechanically grinded to remove any contaminants before DPM IT damp proof membrane was applied.
DPM IT is a two component, solvent free epoxy resin system for use as a surface damp proof membrane. Designed to provide protection against subfloor moisture, DPM IT has a pot life of 45 – 75 minutes, a cure time of 5 hours and boasts a 98% RH floor moisture tolerance.
Once cured, the entire 4,000sqm area was primed with one neat coat of Prime IT Multi-surface Primer before applying UltraFloor Level IT Two at a 3mm depth.
Formulated to promote the adhesion to all UltraFloor smoothing underlayments, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer reduces pinholing, minimising the risk of costly failures. With a coverage rate of 200sqm at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.
There are many reasons why Level IT Two has become UltraFloor’s most popular floor leveller. Its exceptional flow characteristics make it a very easy material to apply to a variety of subfloors in both commercial and domestic flooring projects. Its low odour formulation means this fantastic all-rounder leveller is equally suited to confined areas, proving particularly popular in the education, health and hospitality sectors.
With a set time of 2.5 hours, Level IT Two can receive bonded floor coverings after just 8 hours, making it an ideal choice for projects with a tight deadline. What’s more, because Level IT Two is available as a two component system, it takes the guesswork out of mixing, reducing site errors and guaranteeing a perfect application every time.
The project took place between December 2022 and May 2023 and thanks to the fantastic performance of UltraFloor and the talented team at Midlands Flooring, the job was completed on time, with no problems.
On using UltraFloor, Midlands Flooring commented: “Level IT Two has a smooth finish which required very little preparation. The drying time was perfect, even in the colder conditions”.
