COMMUNITY CENTRE When the call went out to build a much- needed community centre in West Kensington, Dartford-based flooring specialist, Arcadia, and tremco illbruck donated their skills and materials to achieve a fast, quality flooring installation.

From the outset, TREMCO’s Area Sales Manager and technical advisory staff cooperated closely with the flooring contractor and project consultants to ensure the correct products were specified and supplied on time to meet the physical and logistical requirements of a unique project. A fast-track system solution was essential due to the compressed construction timetable with TREMCO personnel not only visiting site to carry out visual inspections and to take RH readings, but also scheduling a just-in-time evening delivery to respect the lack of on-site storage space, as well as the time constraints. Advice was also offered to the personnel involved to help achieve the optimum quality and rapid installation times sought.

In an intense 14-hour period, Arcadia put a 10-strong team to work sealing and


OF COMFORT Just as comfy as your favourite pair of sneakers, comfortBack is a recycled polyester felt backing that improves underfoot cushioning on modulyss carpet tiles.

Reducing muscle fatigue while fending off wear, comfortBack equipped carpet tiles are ideal for projects looking to improve wellbeing and comfort in the workplace.

retention of modulyss carpet tiles and helping them to last longer. The backing also makes installations quieter than those using standard back2back equipped carpet tiles.

Available as standard in six colourways on the First Absolute, DSGN Cloud and DSGN Tweed carpet tile collections, comfortBack will not break down, even under intense use, ensuring that carpet tiles will provide the long-term durability and strength demanded in today’s busy workplaces. Upholding the faultless performance of standard back2back carpet tiles, comfortBack still delivers excellent burning behaviour, perfect seams and dimensional stability.

What’s more, using UZIN U 2100 adhesive, the backing can be installed just like any other modulyss carpet tile making installation, uplift and removal easy. Optional on any modulyss carpet tile from a certain minimum order quantity, comfortBack is a great way

and can be laid in thicknesses of up to 10mm, meaning multiple layers were used to level the most irregular areas. TREMCO SF108 Rubber Pressure Sensitive Acrylic Adhesive has been developed for the single-stick application of wall and floor finishes.

Arcadia’s Managing Director, Gary Perry, was delighted with the quality of the finish, explaining: “I was very keen to use TREMCO products; the company’s Area Sales Manager ensured we used the very best in terms of suitability for this challenge.”
