Gestamp Tallent Ltd – Engineering and Manufacturing Flooring
Gestamp Tallent Ltd is part of the Gestamp group, an international group with presence in more than 23 countries dedicated to the design, development, and manufacture of metal automotive components. PSC Flooring have carried out flooring work at two of the UK Gestamp facilities over a number of years. In each case the client brief was a hard-wearing floor that was seamless, easy to clean, could give anti-slip resistance when wet and would last for a decade or more, so PSC Flooring recommended a nominal 6mm heavy duty RT polyurethane screed.
1096 square metres gangways and walkways at Gestamp, Fareham, Hampshire.
The existing concrete floors were shot blasted clean, repairs were made to damaged concrete as required using epoxy mortar compound and then one coat of Resdev Pumaprime damp proof epoxy resin primer was laid.
A nominal 6mm heavy duty Resdev Pumadur polyurethane screed was applied by trowel, in the clients chosen Chelsea blue to gangways and safety yellow to walkways. To complete the refurbishment a 6mm x 6mm channel was saw cut to the expansion joints and infilled with joining compound.
The work was carried out in just two weeks, during a shutdown period. The project was completed on time and in budget and the customer was delighted with the results.
