Local residents of Wiltshire, picturesque Sherston Village are delighted with their new high street footway. The footway’s final attractive appearance was created using UltraScape Flowpoint in Natural Grey.
In need of repair, this popular pedestrian route through Sherston village required Wiltshire Council to source a material that would compliment the surrounding buildings, and contribute to the area’s overall appearance. UltraScape Flowpoint, a rapid setting flowable grout from UK manufacturer Instarmac was selected for use.
The product is suitable for almost all paving types, including sandstone, limestone, concrete and granite. It is fast and efficient to apply leaving a perfect, stain-free finish. Perfect for wide or narrow joints, Flowpoint can accommodate widths of 3-50mm and depths of up to 200mm in a single pass. It is therefore, just as equally suited to irregular granite setts as it is to large profile stone paving.
Due to the product’s rapid setting performance, paving grouted with Flowpoint can be opened to pedestrians in just 1 hour and vehicular traffic after only 4 hours, minimising disruption to the area.
UltraScape Flowpoint meets and exceeds all of the requirements of the latest British Standard, BS 7533. In addition, it is also available in 2 alternatives to regular. ‘ECO’, offering all the standard features of the grout but containing 20% recycled material, and ‘Smooth’ which creates a smooth surface finish.
Not only did the aesthetically pleasing result make an impact, Flowpoint impressed the project contractors, Balfour Beatty Living Places too. Wiltshire Council’s Principal Traffic Engineer, Martin Rose said: “We were delighted with your Flowpoint product. The contractor commented on just how quick and easy it was to use and the finished look was outstanding.”
“It has received many positive comments from local residents.”
