An eye-catching industrial floor from Flowcrete is creating a bright impression at a manufacturing plant in Glasgow.
Based on the Old Mill Park Industrial Estate in Kirkintilloch, Guala Closures is a world leader in the production of non-refillable and aluminium bottle closures.
1,053sqm of Flowshield SL, a self-levelling floor capable of handling heavy traffic, was installed throughout the assembly area by Flowcrete approved contractor, Industrial Floor Treatments Ltd (IFT) of East Kilbride.
The industrial standard epoxy resin flooring, which was mixed in a stunning clipper blue colour, is ideal for production areas being seamless and easy to maintain.
Alan Dean, Sales Director of Flowcrete, said: The project went well from start to finish.
From initial site inspection, the client was provided with a range of options and the finished Flowcrete systems were shown in situ to help them make their choice.
David Paterson, Technical Manager at Guala Closures, said: A number of different floor types were looked at, including vinyl, but I visited a factory where exactly the same Flowcrete floor had been installed in stages over a number of years and it all still looked good.
We chose the Bright Blue colour, which had also been used at the factory we viewed, because it gave the area a clean look.
All our employees have been impressed and we are really pleased with the floor.
Greg Love, Managing Director of IFT, said: There was a strict two-week window for the work during a factory shutdown so there would be no production loss to the client.
There was existing vinyl and latex flooring to be uplifted before we could start and then the base had to fully prepared before the Flowshield SL could be installed.
The target had to be achieved for the client to be back in production without any delays and the project was completed in 11 days.
