Resin Flooring Specialists Quattro Contracting have joined forces with renowned resin systems manufacturer Resdev Limited to provide the ideal industrial flooring solution for GA Pet Food Partners’ 10 year sustainable development plan.

With a background in farming, GA is committed to meeting higher environmental standards ahead of the requirements proposed in the Climate Change Bill and as such they have set in place a manifesto of improvements for the company and its surroundings, including the construction of new extrusion lines for the efficient ‘lean’ manufacture of own label premium dried pet foods.

Utilising more than 25 years of experience, quality and assurance, Quattro Contracting specified, managed and installed a bespoke ‘belt and braces’ system developed for use in food manufacture where resistance to heavy wear and spillage is imperative. Resdev’s Pumadur HF, heavy duty polyurethane flooring, was applied throughout the main plant area and onto a number of mezzanine levels housing parts of the machinery. The areas are subjected to regular hosing to maintain hygiene standards and ensure safety so, in order to provide additional abrasion and slip resistance, a full calcined bauxite aggregate scatter was incorporated into the wet screed. The system was

then finished with Pumadur TF, polyurethane coating.

To complement the floor and give the customer a fully comprehensive ‘tanked’ system, the walls were covered to a level of 3 metres with a fibreglass enforced coating system utilising Resdev’s Pumadur DD UV resistant polyurethane coating. The pristine gloss finish offers a high degree of resistance to spillage and traffic use.


Fitting the bill for quality, drying time and cost efficiency, FlexiDry were quite rightly the winning screed choice for the new London Blackfriars Station.

Their FlexiDry F0 was chosen to provide a high quality subfloor for nearly 5,500sqm of the new station platform. Being a premium quality screed that gets the floor ready for the final finish within just three days of screeding, the F0 formulation of FlexiDry fast drying floor screeds is one of the most popular screeds for projects requiring quick completion.

The £350million London 42

Blackfriar’s station is part of the congestion-busting Thameslink Project, which is expected to be completed just before the 2012 Olympics. The new station will span across the River Thames and provide easy access to the London South Bank tourist areas. With the Thameslink Programme estimated to cater to up to 24 trains per hour, the capacity of the new station is expected to be tripled.

When construction waste and landfill forms a major menace in urban construction, products like FlexiDry have been highly beneficial in facilitating

efficient construction practices. Unlike traditional and pre-bagged screed mixes which generate considerable amount of wastage, FlexiDry fast drying floor screeds come with a highly concentrated liquid screed additive that gives the flexibility of mixing the screeds as per requirement, without wastage. Also, being available in cans as a highly concentrated liquid helps in easy storage and transportation, while avoiding the generation of dust and polluting super fine dust.

As sustainability becomes the new norm in modern

construction, products like FlexiDry which combine sustainability, quality and cost efficiency define the ideal standards for new age construction material.
