About The Project
In 2017, we were asked to install a complete acrylic resin flooring in the kitchen at this prestigious location, the Shangri-La at The Shard.
With up to 5 men on-site at any one time working 12-hour shifts, we arranged for the de-installation of the kitchen equipment and its removal to a temporary storage unit.
Using mechanical devices, we removed both the old vinyl flooring and the latex levelling screed underneath; all rubbish was then transferred to skip and disposed of.
The concrete sub-floor was suitably prepared to not only remove all contamination and laitance but also to expose a cracked aggregate surface.
Exposing the cracked aggregate surface will allow full penetration of the primer coat. We installed coving using Acrylicon Décor cove mix, in a colour scheme that perfectly matched the flooring.
The cove mix, ultimately, is sealed with the acrylic resin flooring to provide seamless joints, thus avoiding any potential traps for dirt and bacteria.
After priming, a 4mm thickness of Acrylicon Décor System was applied by trowel.
The system was applied with edges to all drain channels and expertly ‘toed in’ using a flexible Acrylicon resin.
The industrial floor was given two seal coats with an Aluminium Oxide coating between them to provide HSE approved slip resistance.
Within 2 hours of this final coat being applied, the equipment was returned to the kitchen and re-commissioned for immediate use.
All customers are provided with a lifetime guarantee on all flooring as we are confident that the resin will never delaminate from the concrete.
