3000 sq mtrs of 3mm Self Levelling epoxy resin screed, were laid at Main Exhibition Hall at Three Counties Showground, in Malvern.
Three Counties Showground in Malvern contacted PSC Flooring Ltd to refurbish the floor in their main exhibition hall totalling 3000 sq mtrs. The existing epoxy resin coatings were not giving them a long term solution and they were constantly upgrading them every few years. The brief was for a hard wearing, durable epoxy resin floor surface to withstand high levels of weekly exhibitions and over 100,000 pedestrians every year and would provide an aesthetically pleasing floor.
PSC Flooring Ltd specified a Resdev Pumaflow 3mm SL epoxy resin screed. Epoxy resin self-levelling screeds are ideal for industrial locations where a durable, hygienic dust free environment is important e.g. laboratories, hospital clean rooms, electronics assembly plants, showrooms and light industrial plants.
Epoxy SL screeds are categorised by FeRFA as Type 5 (2-3mm thick) and recommends them for regular foot traffic, frequent forklift traffic and occasional hard plastic wheeled trolleys. In Light to Medium duty working environments the BS indicates a typical life expectancy of 6-10 years for this type of floor topping.
All of the 3000 sq mtrs in the main hall were heavily shot-blasted to remove the existing resin coatings and all areas were swept and vacuumed cleaned and all expansion joints were recut and repaired using epoxy mortar compound. Two coats epoxy resin primer were then laid to the total floor area.
A 3mm Self Levelling epoxy resin screed, light grey, gloss was laid to the total area.
The 3000 sq mtr project was completed in 12 days, on time and in budget, providing the client with a very robust, durable, hard wearing surface, that is good to look at that will be maintenance free and can be used for many years to come.
Mr John Wilesmith, M.D said, “ We are delighted with the gloss self levelling epoxy resin screed, it looks amazing and is very hard wearing and very practical for us. PSC Flooring were very helpful and provided us with an excellent floor at a very fair price.”
