Sika supplied the perfectly-level, anti-static floor system to protect highly-sensitive IT equipment on behalf of one of the world’s leading banks.  The project involved the installation of a safe and stylish surface at a new building attached to the existing premises of global bank and finance services firm.

The new construction was built to contain a host of vital computer software, requiring flooring of the utmost smoothness, strength and anti-static properties to safeguard the efficiency of the company’s hi-tech communications. Sikafloor’s supremely-smart and reliable built-up system proved more than ideal for the task.

The floor surface was prepared by diamond-grinding the substrate before installing a 30mm layer of Sikafloor® Level-30, a fast drying, cementitious screed to the new 1,000m2 surface.  Sikafloor®-161, a two-part epoxy primer for concrete substrates with excellent bond strength was then applied, followed by a conductive layer including a copper tape grid.

The surface’s anti-static layer was provided by Sikafloor®-220W, a two-component, waterbased epoxy coating with high electrostatic conductivity. Sikafloor®-262 AS N supplied the smooth, high-gloss finish. The multi-purpose binder also offers optimum mechanical and chemical resistance, making it the ideal solution for a variety of highly-trafficked work spaces.

The client said of Sika “We specified Sika for this extremely high-profile project as we believed it offered the best-quality finish – we were not wrong. Not only did the product perform as well as we expected, Sika offered invaluable technical advice throughout the programme.”

The result of this project is a smart, perfectly-smooth floor which carries a Sika guarantee of its anti-static properties. You can bank on Sika to produce high-quality flooring.
