Olivers Contracts chose a UZIN system to install luxury vinyl tiles at the Islington Customer Centre. Approximately 900 m2 of old flooring had become contaminated and worn from general foot traffic. Overall, the floor appeared soft and a little unstable. A further concern was that premium luxury vinyl tiles needed to be installed within open and expansive areas containing large windows. Consequently, the floor would be subject to a considerable amount of natural light and potential heat. The floor preparation and installation therefore had to be perfect so Olivers Contracts turned to UZIN’s premium quality product systems to resolve the problems.
A Wolff Samba machine with a diamond bits was first used to remove all contamination and loose latex. UZIN PE 280 primer was used to create a barrier between the cementitious subfloor and UZIN NC 110 calcium sulphate based smoothing compound. The luxury vinyl tiles were then installed with UZIN KE 66 high temperature adhesive. The project was completed without any complications. The client was exceptionally pleased with the finish throughout all areas and there hasn’t been any subfloor or product failure since. Gareth Jenkins, Project Manager at Islington Council said “I am very pleased with the quality and appearance of the finished flooring.”
