Diamond grinding was used to prepare the edges.

Following investigations and the success of our Trial Patch Condale made the decision to replace the failed resin floor which had been laid by another contractor.

Condale selected Elgood Industrial Flooring’s Britdura 2000 Solvent Free Epoxy Flow Coat (nominal thickness of 2mm) .

The floor has a fine slip resistant texture which does not inhibit sweeping / house keeping. Condale chose our Light Grey.
