Renowned fashion and home furnishings company, Laura Ashley recently commissioned Stafford Tiles and Flooring Solutions Ltd. to lay a new decorative floor within their Stafford store.
When flooring projects are required within the retail sector time is never a luxury, and the job’s window is always a small one. To ensure a successful completion the team at Stafford Tiles and Flooring Solutions Ltd. used subfloor preparation products from UltraFloor – a brand they trust.
The original substrate had been untouched for five years, and therefore required extensive surface preparation to remove paints and laitance. An UltraFloor primer was then used to prepare the surface.
Priming is an essential part of the flooring application process and is one that must be completed effectively every time. Consideration as to which type of primer is most appropriate for each substrate is of utmost importance.
A traditional two-part powder and liquid system, Level IT Two is ideal for levelling uneven internal substrates prior to the application of a floor covering. The two-part system allows for fast and efficient mixing preparation as there is no requirement to add water.
Level IT Two, UltraFloor’s best selling floor levelling compound, combines excellent flow characteristics with strong adhesion properties through the inclusion of a synthetic latex liquid component. This liquid component provides increased flexural capacity, ensuring Level IT Two has exceptional compatibility with timber substrates.
The product’s formulation is free from ammonia, creating a very low odour material suitable for confined areas as well as open. In addition, the product is designed to compensate for shrinkage, is polymer modified and free of protein. Following subfloor preparation a Karndean decorative covering was then fixed.
The store has now reopened to the public in all its new glory.
