Sikafloor’s Quality Surface Ensures Production Plant Functions Without Slip-Ups
Sikafloor provided the long-term, anti-slip solution for the refurbishment of a large-scale production plant, ensuring staff have a safe, hard-wearing surface on which to work.
Sikafloor provided the long-term, anti-slip solution for the refurbishment of a large-scale production plant, ensuring staff have a safe, hard-wearing surface on which to work. Howdens Joinery manufactures and supplies fitted kitchens, appliances and joinery products. A refit of four of its main production units necessitated the installation of new flooring throughout. Due to the industrialised nature of work being carried out within the buildings, the new surface needed to withstand the rigours of large mechanical movements and heavy footfall. Main contractors, Zircon Flooring, specified Sikafloor®-264, a two-part epoxy roller and seal coloured-coat, which comes with a guarantee and provides the ideal hard-wearing surface for concrete and cement screeds. Its anti-slip properties were particularly pertinent to the Howden units, as the wood being manufactured creates sawdust which reduces surface tread. Stewart Draper, Managing Director at Zircon Flooring, said: “There was only one system for this project. Sikafloor®-264 is a proven performer in the industrial flooring environment, and the added benefit of a 10-year guarantee put it way beyond other products being considered for the refurbishment. “It more than lived-up to expectation, providing Howdens Joinery with a floor that is as textured and aesthetically-pleasing, whilst at the same time, safe and fully protected against chemical and mechanical wear-and-tear.” For further information on Sika’s range of products visit www.sika.co.uk/flooring or for general enquiries including technical, on or off site support, please call 0800 1123865.
