UZIN system expedites flooring installation at Gaia Spa

UZIN system expedites flooring installation at Gaia Spa

A damp anhydrite screed was causing delays for the flooring installation at Gaia Spa & Gym at Boringdon Hall Hotel so a UZIN system was used to expedite the project.

The Grade one listed Boringdon Hall Hotel in Plympton, near Plymouth is a former medieval Manor House where style and luxury meet the Elizabethan architecture. The hotel believed this idyllic location on the edge of Dartmoor would make the perfect destination spa and aimed to create luxurious fitness and wellbeing facilities.

Drawing inspiration from nature the spa’s interior and exterior encompass natural materials in¬cluding wood, stone and glass in order to bring the outdoors in. A high quality finish was therefore paramount.

A damp proof membrane was applied the calcium sulphate screed by applying two coats of UZIN PE 425 followed by two coats of UZIN PE 404.

Before UZIN NC 150 smoothing compound was applied, a coat of UZIN PE 280 primer was applied onto the UZIN PE 404 to create a barrier between the calcium sulphate screed and the cementitious smoothing compound.

700 m2 of Heuga Podium XXL LVT flooring, 50 m2 of Altro Walkway, 40 m2 Tarkett Vinyl and 100 m2 of Burmatex Carpet tiles were installed using UZIN KE 2000 S adhesive.

The UZIN system al¬lows projects to be completed much quicker and avoids long delays, so provided the perfect solution. Firstly two coats of UZIN PE 425 primer was applied to the anhydrite screed. Two coats of UZIN PE 404 resin DPM were then installed, fol¬lowed by a coat of UZIN PE 280 rapid drying primer.

A flat and smooth finish was achieved by installing UZIN NC 150 water mix smoothing compound. Finally a variety of different floor coverings including luxury vinyl tiles, vinyl and safety floor¬ing were installed using UZIN KE 2000 S pressure sensitive adhesive. The innovative system enabled Russells Flooring Ltd to install the new flooring in time for clients opening date.
