A hard wearing floor coating to meet the demands of the work place and a high standard of appearance to compliment the fit out at the newly built facility in Buckingham.
Hartridge were very concerned that the new floor should create a particular impression and as such considered the choice of colour to be of upmost importance.
Elgood were able to offer Hartridge a choice of colours from outside of the stock range. Using a Ral colour card, Hartridge selected five colours that appealed to them. As part of the pre-installation service, Elgood manufactured samples of each colour for Hartridge to assess. The colour Green Beige Ral 1000 was selected.
Dust free shotblasting was used to lightly key the concrete and diamond grinding was used to prepare edges.
The Britdura 750 Highbuild Solvent Free Epoxy Floor Coating which is applied by trowel. With very light colours low opacity can be a problem. To ensure good opacity, three coloured coats were applied instead of the normal specification of a clear primer coat and two coloured coats.
