Mapei products have been utilised in the ultramodern ROCA London Gallery situated close to Chelsea Harbour. Mapeis Ultratop cementitious flooring system and Keraflex ceramic adhesive were used across the 1,100m2 single floor in the project designed by the esteemed Zaha Hadid Architects and expertly installed by Resin Flooring Specialists.
Inspiration was taken from the element of water; transforming both the exterior and interior into a spectacular sculptured space where it appears that water has morphed and smoothed each and every detail. The Ultratop flooring system provided a fluid final aesthetic that was integral with the theme, offering a highly polished look.
The Ultratop cementitious flooring system comprised of Primer SN; a two component epoxy filling primer, Quartz 1.2; Ultratop Anthracite, Keraseal transparent sealant and Mapelux wax. Ultratop is a quick setting, self-levelling mortar based on special hydraulic binders, with a high mechanical strength for abrasion-resistant floors from 5- 40mm. It can be left as a finished floor and is perfect for areas subject to heavy pedestrian use such as busy retail outlets.
Available in a range of colours, Ultratop provides the ultimate palette for designing strong, unique and aesthetic floors for retail, supermarket, restaurant and showroom use. Mixed with Dynastone Color or natural aggregates, Ultratop may be used to create floors similar in appearance to Terrazzo. After three days it can be dry polished to a completely smooth, unique finish, as was desired at the ROCA Gallery.
Tiled areas of the ROCA gallery were installed using Mapeis high performance, flexible adhesive Keraflex. The cementitious adhesive, which has no vertical slip and an extended open time, will be ideal for the high levels of foot traffic expected.
The use of Mapeis innovative products has assisted in achieving the ROCA Gallerys remarkable distinctive, avant-garde appearance as well as demonstrating ROCAs brand and company values.
