IFT’s fully integrated flooring service appointed for iconic ice-cream makers new premises

IFT was appointed by Advanced Building Contractors to install the polymer screed and Heavy Duty Polyurethane flooring at Equi’s ice cream makers new premises at Rutherglen Links Business Park.

IFTs fully integrated flooring service provided the client with continuity of service in being able to install both the SBR screed, which produced the essential strength for the polyurethane resin, as well as the Ucrete UD200 finish at 6mm which incorporated a radius coved skirting. This gave the client the one flooring contractor to deal with and ensured a high quality of service. IFT also installed the appropriate falls to ensure that the finish floor will shed water towards and into the drain gulleys.

Ucrete UD200 meets customer demands in various industry sectors where robust hygienic floors are required. These floors are tolerant of substrate moisture and rapid curing facilitating the maintenance of tight constructions schedules and reducing down time in refurbishment applications. The combination of temperature, chemical, impact and wear resistance ensures that a correctly specified Ucrete floor will last for many years. Ucrete floors have been widely used throughout the food industry for over 40 years, with many older floors still in service, and are accredited for use in facilities operating HACCP based food safety systems. They are non-solvented and have been awarded the Eurofins Gold Seal for indoor air quality, they do not taint food stuffs even during application and do not support biological growth.

Equi’s is a fine example of Scotland’s food and drink sector and we are delighted to have been involved in the production of their new premises.
