Visitors to this year’s Facilities Show will be able to find out how Flowcrete UK can provide an environmentally friendly, high performance floor build-up – all from one manufacturer and installed under one warranty.
The event, at the ExCel Centre from June 16th-19th, is the ideal opportunity to talk to Flowcrete’s resin flooring experts about decorative floor finishes, high performance screeds and ultra-efficient underfloor heating – all of which can be combined into one sustainable flooring solution.
The Flowcrete UK Marketing Manager, Ian Jones, said: “We know that facility managers have to account for a long list of factors when specifying the floor, which means considering more than just the initial budget and final appearance.
“Maintenance issues, green credentials, longevity, energy efficiency, load bearing, cleanliness and more all have to be carefully analysed before a flooring solution is chosen.
“We’ve developed our flooring range so that specifiers can choose the screed, coating, underfloor heating and acoustic insulation that meets the specific requirements of their project.”
At stand S1115 the facilities management sector can learn about Flowcrete UK’s latest innovation, the environmentally friendly Isocrete Alpha screed, which can quickly create a hard wearing, multifunctional screed layer.
An evolution of traditional anhydrite flowing screeds, the Isocrete Alpha screed has a faster drying time and its laitance free finish means that sanding is not required prior to the application of a coating – speeding up the floor’s installation timescale.
95% of the alpha hemi-hydrate calcium sulphate binder used in this solution is reclaimed from waste created by coal power stations, significantly reducing the amount of industrial by-product sent to landfills. This cement free formulation also avoids the environmentally harmful side affects of producing and using cement.
The Isocrete Alpha screed can be combined with Isowarm underfloor heating and acoustic K-foam to fully optimise the floor area. The space-saving Isowarm system is able to deliver efficiency savings of up to 30% compared to traditional heating methods, while the acoustic insulation layer reduces noise transfer between building levels. Both of these systems are ideal for high-rise residential developments eager to improve the indoor living standard.
The wide variety of vibrant colours, decorative effects and styles available from Flowcrete UK allows developers to complete the floor area with a visually impressive surface that will be able to maintain its aesthetics for an extended period of time.
The seamless resin terrazzo range Mondéco has been designed to create a shimmering surface that can be installed across large areas of floor in bespoke patterns. Over 50% of the decorative aggregates used within Flowcrete UK’s Mondéco Mirrazzo floors are recycled, making it a viable option for projects looking to source a sustainable floor finish.
