Speech House Hotel – Food Grade Flooring
PSC Flooring have recently completed a commercial kitchen project in the Forest of Dean. The Speech House Hotel, a former 17th-century hunting lodge set in the heart of the idyllic Royal Forest of Dean called us in to look at their commercial kitchen. At the site visit it was noted that the 90 square meter kitchen had a layer of sheet vinyl that would need to be uplifted, before the latex and adhesive could be removed from the quarry tiles beneath.
Client Brief & Recommendation
The client was looking for a food grade, seamless, hard wearing, impact resistant, chemical resistant, anti-slip resin floor that would last 10 years plus. It was recommended that an Epoxy resin primer was laid before a 6mm Resdev Pumadur RT polyurethane resin screed system was installed and completed with 100mm high matching coving.
In preparation for the 6mm food grade resin screed system
The layer of sheet vinyl was uplifted, exposing a layer of latex and adhesive. The layer of latex and adhesive was removed from the quarry tiles beneath using a captive double headed diamond grinding machine and a totally enclosed hand held 110v diamond grinder for the edgework.
The area was then vacuumed clean of all residue and dust and 6mm x 10mm saw cuts were made to the door thresholds, around drains and gullies and perimeter of floor area and where necessary to toe in and anchor the screed.
6mm RT heavy duty polyurethane screed
An Epoxy resin primer was laid before a 6mm Resdev Pumadur RT polyurethane resin screed was laid in the clients chosen mid grey. The floor was then complemented by 50 linear metres of 100mm high CG polyurethane coving system.
