UltraTile supports Rugby World Cup legacy29th January 2016
UltraTile products have recently been used in the refurbishment of Woodrush Rugby Football Club, Birmingham following the receipt of a RFU Social Spaces Grant.
UltraTile, the tile adhesives, grouts and ancillaries brand from the UK manufacturer Instarmac Group, were delighted to support club sponsors and long-standing customer, Anglo Italian. The team’s busy clubhouse was completely refurbished during a 5 month window, prior to the start of the Rugby World Cup. Anglo Italian tiled all floors and washroom walls using Italian mixed porcelain tiles and UltraTile FibreGrip FX in grey. UltraTile FlexJoint was then used to grout all surfaces and provide a professional and stylish finish to this popular social venue.
UltraTile FibreGrip FX is a premium grade, polymer modified adhesive with added fibres for superior bond, fibre enhanced body and exceptional grab. It is ideal for use with natural stone, porcelain, quartz and ceramic tiles, and is formulated to adhere to most common substrates including screwed and fixed over-boarded wooden floors. FibreGrip FX is suitable for wall and floor installations in both internal and external locations. It is classified under CE marking regulations as a C2 FT and is compatible with underfloor heating systems.
Joint finishing was completed using UltraTile FlexJoint grout in Grey. This grout boasts a super fine texture, is polymer modified for ultimate flexibility, repels water and will not mould. It can be used with underfloor heating and for joint widths from 1-20mm. Eight other colours are available to choose from: White, Cream, Jasmine, Limestone, Sandstone, Chocolate, Titanium and Anthracite. Complimentary colours in UltraTile ProSeal IT silicone are also available.
The project’s value was £10,000, spanned 120m² and was completed in time for the start of the Rugby World Cup. The venue has therefore played host to a number of avid fans over recent weeks – all were very impressed with its fantastic, high quality new look!
UltraTile also supported the Rugby World Cup by running a competition to win tickets to the Australia v Wales game on the 10th October. The lucky winner was Kelly Lucas from Tiletec, Middlesex. Kelly went to the match with her brother and they both had a great day.
