IFT Install resin and raised access flooring at new state-of-the-art Aerospace Innovation Centre

IFT was appointed by Balfour Beatty to install the resin and raised access flooring at the new state-of-the-art Aerospace Innovation Centre in Prestwick for Spirit AeroSystems who design and build aerostructures for both commercial and defence customers around the world.

IFT’s fully integrated flooring service was key to this project in delivering on a package which combined floor surface preparation, a variety of resin floor finishes, and Raised Access Flooring.

The resin finishes included Flowfast Terrosso to the toilet areas, Flowshield SL to the main production areas and epoxy floor paint to the plant rooms. The raised access flooring was installed to the office areas prior to the application of the floor tiles – the photos below are testament to the finishes provided throughout.

Flowshield SL is a hygienic self-smoothing resin floor finish, suitable for dry process areas where the floor is subjected to medium to heavy duty, foot, trolley, pallet truck and rubber wheeled fork lift traffic. Flowshield SL is used to protect concrete given its improved durability to withstand both mechanical and chemical stress. The finished surface becomes smooth, impermeable, and easy to clean.

Flowfast Terrosso is a seamless, decorative, hard wearing acrylic resin floor finish, developed for high traffic retail environments requiring a new floor finish under a fast turnaround.

Flowseal EPW is a coloured, gloss finish, water based hygienic floor seal for use in food process areas, kitchens, light industrial areas, storerooms, garages and areas of pedestrian and light traffic. This system exhibits a low odour during application and its easy application provides a seamless finish that is easy to clean and maintain.

BGM600 Raised Access Flooring is particularly suitable for general office environments where there are significant levels of building services in the floor void including electrical power, data, telecoms, air conditioning or environmental control, security, fire detection and suppression.
