One of the country’s largest hospitals, Birmingham Heartlands, needs to be operating smoothly to provide the best in patient care. The refurbishment of their Children’s OPD Department needed to be completed on time without any complications so that day-to-day practice could re-commence.
Experienced contractors, Newlay Floors, carried out the resurfacing. Existing floor coverings and the old adhesives and smoothing compounds were mechanically removed, followed by new sub-floor preparation using UltraFloor DPM IT, an UltraFloor primer and Level IT Smooth.
DPM IT is a two-part epoxy resin system. The product cures to provide a waterproof surface membrane that allows fast installation of cement-based surfaces, thus reducing waiting time and costs.
Newlay Floors then prepared the substrate with an UltraFloor polymer emulsion primer for non-porous surfaces so it was ready to receive Level IT Smooth.
UltraFloor’s Level IT Smooth is designed specifically for levelling surfaces. A product which has superior flow properties providing a fast and easy application, results in a thin, exceptionally strong and perfectly level underlayment that is ready to receive decorative floor coverings after only 24 hours.
Level IT Smooth has a set time of 2 hours and can be laid at depths from 3 to 10mm – covering an optimum 5.5m2 at 3mm thickness.
