Flowcrete will be showcasing an innovative flooring solution for communal areas in flats and apartment blocks at the Chartered Institute of Housings Exhibition in Harrogate.
The UK specialist flooring manufacturer will showcase its two-hour flooring concept at the exhibition, Flowfast, which is helping to transform environments in local authority and social housing multi-occupancy developments.
Flowcretes stand number is 450 at the exhibition. The event also includes a national conference and takes place at the Harrogate International Centre from 22 to 24 June.
Alan Blay, director of Flowfast systems at Flowcrete, said: The housing market is important to us and we are delighted to be associated with the Chartered Institute of Housings Exhibition, which is one of the sectors most eagerly awaited annual events.
Flowfast has attracted interest from social housing providers who are keen to find a quick, durable and easy to use solution for flooring issues.
The seamless, hard-wearing and easy-to-maintain surface has already been installed at locations across London and the South East.
Flowfast has been used to refurbish entrances, walkways, stairwells and private balconies in housing schemes in Peckham, Wandsworth, Roehampton and Tower Hamlets.
Safety, aesthetics and durability have been the key drivers of the specification, along with minimal disturbance to residents and other people on site - due to the fact Flowfast is ready for use just two hours after application.
Flowfasts decorative quartz system, as well as Flowfast Terrosso - which delivers a terrazzo-like finish - have both been applied to replace tired concrete floors at the developments.
A bright yellow Flowfast coating has also been used on stair nosings, creating a protective coating that helps with safety by aiding both slip resistance and visibility.
The refurbishment works have helped to dramatically improve the ambiance and overall appearance at the various locations, added Alan Blay.
