Unipart Group HSS Electric Cell Area
Zenith Pola Flooring was requested by Unipart to recommend a system that would work on asphalt for their HSS Electric Cell Area, ensuring a durable, cost-effective solution.
Unipart House in Cowley, Oxfordshire had experienced many problems with resin floor coverings in the past due to the fact that the majority of their substrate is made from asphalt. As asphalt expands and contracts in different temperatures, so it presents problems for resin flooring, often causing the bonded floor covering to crack and ultimately de-bond. Zenith Pola Flooring was requested by Unipart to recommend a system that would work on asphalt for their HSS Electric Cell Area, ensuring a durable, cost-effective solution. Given the difficulties with the substrate, there were few options available. However, Zenith was able to recommend a system by Deckmaster, a wholly owned subsidiary of Resdev Ltd, which was capable of meeting the criteria. Initially, Zenith’s team commenced works by grinding the entire floor area, measuring some 1650 m2, to remove all existing coatings and applying Deckaflix grouting to some of the more pitted areas. Once the surface was level, they were able to apply Deckmaster HFS UVR, a 1.5mm trowel-applied, flexible polyurethane system, designed specifically to go on asphalt substrates.
