UltraScape reaches for the sky in Dubai

UltraScape’s Mortar Paving System has been used to install and joint 15,000m² of paving at the iconic Residences Sky View in Downtown Dubai.

Designed by the same architects who created the Burj Khalifa, Residences Sky View is set to become the next landmark in Dubai.

The luxurious twin towers are home to a 166 room hotel and 531 serviced apartments with the complex and beautiful Sky Bridge connecting the two towers together. The Sky Bridge is home to world class restaurants, stunning ballroom and infinity pool offering panoramic views of Dubai.

Residences Sky View is the epitome of elegant and grand living and so it was crucial that the materials used to create this development were aesthetically pleasing and could withstand the constant trafficking from tourists, visitors and residents.

UltraScape’s Mortar Paving System, supplied by Instarmac’s partner in Dubai, Tanseeq LLC, was used to install and joint 15,000m² of paving around the base of the complex.

UltraScape’s Mortar Paving System is made up of tested, trusted and proven materials including Pro-Bed HS bedding mortar, Pro-Prime slurry primer and Flowpoint Smooth rapid set flowable grout.

Pre-blended for ease of use, Pro-Bed HS fine bedding mortar provides the ultimate laying course for all types of paving. It can be laid from 10mm – 75mm, is shrinkage compensated and can be opened to foot traffic in just 12 hours, allowing contractors to move on to the next part of the project quickly.

Formulated to provide an exceptional bond between your paving element and Pro-Bed HS, Pro-Prime slurry primer eliminates costly failures caused by general wear and tear and heavy load bearing.

To complete the installation, Flowpoint Smooth rapid set flowable grout was used in Charcoal to joint the selected pavers.

Flowpoint Smooth is a flowable grout which allows for large areas of paving to be grouted quickly. Suitable for joints from 3mm to 50mm and as deep as 200mm, Flowpoint Smooth has been developed over a number of years to provide a durable finish which will not crack or stain – even in the extremely hot temperatures in Dubai.

With an initial set after just 15 minutes, and a walk on time of one hour, it is unsurprising that Flowpoint Smooth has become synonymous with fast application, cost-effective and robust jointing.

Residences Sky View is the latest in a long line of prestigious projects for UltraScape’s Mortar Paving System in Dubai. Other projects include MBR City, City Walk and Dubai Opera House.
