A number of TREMCO products have been used on a three year programme of works at a school in North London. Middlesex Flooring were selected at the specialist installer to carry out the
works at the South Camden Community College which has been renamed Regent High School after undergoing a £25 million transformation.
Middlesex Flooring have a long relationship with tremco illbruck and felt confident in using TREMCO products due to their performance and also the technical advice and support that they receive. The floor installation was part of a fast track programme, where Middlesex Flooring has to work closely with the main contractor to avoid disruption to other trades.
Amongst the 10,000 square metres of different floor coverings installed over the three years were vinyl, carpet tiles, linoleum and rubber sheet and tile flooring. These were installed over ES100 Single Coat DPM and CS100 Epoxy Primer prior to the application of TREMCO smoothing compounds. ES100 provides a guaranteed surface damp proof membrane where moisture readings are above 75% and is supplied as a two-part treatment that is straightforward to mix and easy to apply. SF108 Pressure Sensitive Adhesive is EC1 compliant, has an exceptional coverage rate of up to 110 m² per 15 litre unit and was used to bond a number of the floor coverings.
Craig Gargan, a Director of Middlesex Flooring, commented: “We employed tremco illbruck as their products are compatible with the various conditions existing; quick drying characteristics and the need for compatibility with underfloor heating systems, for example. Amongst the useful advice was the identification, of particularly porous screeds which were then primed to give better coverage with the DPM.”
