A prestigious new production facility at McVities in Glasgow has started out on a firm footing with the installation of a range of hygienic floor finishes from Flowcrete across Line 14 and 19; a total floor area of almost 3,000 square metres, at the high tech site.
Flowfresh RT was chosen for the main thoroughfares of Line 14, providing McVities with the balance of both a textured finish for slip resistance and a surface capable of easy maintenance and cleanability. The smoother finished Flowcrete Flowfresh MF was also applied in the areas immediately below Line 14, to allow ease of maintenance.
Flowfresh's silver-ion based antimicrobial treatment Polygiene® locked into the resin, controlling up to 99.9 per cent of bacterial microbes on contact for the lifetime of the floor.
Installed in four weeks under two phases, the textured Flowcrete HF was applied in a 'live' working environment on Line 19.
The old floor was excavated then rebuilt and levelled using Isocrete Isopol SBR to provide a sound base for the Flowfresh RT and MF to anchor to. Both lines also used Flowcrete's Hydraseal damp proof membrane as part of the application process.
From the plush shop fronts of high-end retail to hospitals, airports, colleges and other public spaces, one of the reasons why resin flooring remains popular in commercial environments is the benefit of having flooring with long-term durability, strength and resistance to foot traffic.
