More than 1,700m2 of a hard-wearing and fast-applied flooring solution from Sika was provided to an award-winning printing company in Leicester to create a replacement floor that offers long-term performance and durability with minimal disruption during installation.
When Label Apeel purchased an old hosiery factory in Thurmaston near Leicester, they found that the production floors were pitted, in poor condition and required a complete overhaul.
With only two weeks to replace the concrete floor, specialist contractor Central Flooring Services Ltd worked with the client recommending a high performance flooring solution from Sika that would meet their requirements for durability and timescale.
With the floors subjected to considerable daily impact from machinery, forklift trucks and footfall, the Sika flooring system proved ideal. After shot blasting the existing surface and applying the highly resistant Sikafloor 161 primer, Central Flooring installed more than 1,700m2 of the fast-setting Sikafloor Level 30 mortar by pump.
“The client was looking for a quick and effective solution due to the exceptionally poor condition of the factory floor,” commented Richard Jinks, Central Flooring Services Ltd. “The Sika specification ticked all their boxes for aesthetics, heavy usage and an ultra-fast application.”
