Polyflor helps restore Lido Ponty

TLX Gold makes it a double

TLX Insulation’s entire range is now accredited by BBA certification with the latest addition being TLX Gold, the unique 2 in 1 Insulating Breather membrane.

The BBA (British Board of Agrément) is the UK’s major certification body for the construction industry, and their mark of approval provides specifiers with a guarantee that the product will do what it claims. The product has to undergo a battery of tests on multiple samples and the manufacturer is audited against a quality plan, so architects and builders can be confident that the insulation build-ups they use will perform as they should.

Polyflor’s Polysafe safety flooring has helped restore Lido Ponty to its former glory as part of a £6.3m restoration project.

The Grade II listed lido has been transformed into an outdoor pool and adventure play park. Polysafe Arena PUR and Polysafe Modena PUR safety flooring, which offer sustainable slip resistance in accordance with HSE guidelines, were installed at the site. Polysafe Arena PUR in Cement design was installed in The Waterside café and visitor centre, while Polysafe Modena PUR safety flooring in Blue Quartz and Andesite shades was used in back of house zones and the centre’s busy reception area. Bi-parting automatic doors

GEZE UK were commissioned to install a pair of bi-parting automatic doors powered by ECdrives to the entrance of the canteen at the European headquarters of global Sportswear brand New Balance.

Aluminium framed glass doors finished in grey satin were chosen to reflect the industrial theme while providing a stylish modern entrance. Powered by ECdrives, the drive uses GEZE’s activation technology to open the doors automatically to allow staff to access the canteen quickly and safely. It also features a self-cleaning roller carriage and thanks to its low friction design, is quiet, reliable and durable.

Five star roofing solution

The installation of Sika-Trocal Type S and Type SGmA membranes at Park Plaza Riverbank in Central London will ensure the hotel’s multi-million pound extension and reconfiguration completes on time and to the highest standard.

Working with ESA architects and Gear Construction, the design of the eight-storey extension includes the creation of eight separate roof areas of different sizes, shapes and pitches. With a fast and reliable installation a key requirement, the mechanically fixed Sika-Trocal S and SGmA systems proved to be the optimum roofing solution, offering a smooth and rapid installation, excellent flexibility and crisp, simple detailing.
