SMOOTHING UNDERLAYMENTS


DOING TIME


...But luckily, not too much of it, with the new Ultra Floor Level IT two, Super 30 and Prime IT AR, which are being used to refurbish a number of prisons in the South of England.


Flooring Contractor and consultancy, Crown Flooring Ltd, are carrying out sub floor preparation and floor covering installation throughout a number of prisons including Wandsworth, Bullingdon, Winchester and Highpoint


South. Cell, corridor and office floors are being refitted with vinyl and carpet tiles respectively, within a very tight time frame.


Ultra Floor Prime IT AR, an acrylic emulsion primer suitable for use on porous substrates, is being used to prepare the surfaces prior to levelling. It helps reduce the absorbency of the floor and improves the adhesion of cementitious underlayments.


Ultra Floor Level IT Super30, a two-part rapid curing and drying smoothing compound, is being used in the cells to prepare and install the vinyl

floor covering. It sets to walk on in as little as 30 minutes whilst enabling impervious floor coverings to be overlaid in just three hours. It is important that downtime is kept to a minimum as inmates are expected to return to their quarters within eight hours, but this deadline is easily achieved using Level IT Super30.


Communal areas such as corridors and offices are being refurbished using Level IT two which offers superior flow and handling. It can be applied over most subfloors and will tolerate


foot traffic with minimal damage whilst waiting to receive the floor covering, which can be installed 24 hours after application. In this instance it is being overlaid with carpet tiles.


Refurbishment work in HMP is ongoing for Crown Flooring, who continue to use Ultra Floor products thanks to their consistency and reliability.
