luxury office space. The job was completed with the help of F. Ball’s Stopgap P131, a general-purpose primer, Stopgap Green Bag 128, a fast set smoothing underlayment, and Styccobond F3, a water-based rubber/resin adhesive.

Contractors began by removing the existing carpet tiles in all communal areas, including the main reception, stairs and corridors. Following a moisture measurement test, which identified that the subfloor was dry enough to continue without the use of a moisture management system, the subfloor was primed with a coat of Stopgap P131 primer. A 3mm layer of Stopgap Green Bag 128 was then applied, smoothing out any remaining undulations prior to the installation of floorcoverings.


WITH HELP FROM F. BALL High performance subfloor preparation products from F. Ball and Co. Ltd have been used in the refurbishment of the Empress Business Centre in Manchester City Centre.

Contractors from Goulson Furnishing Fitters, based in Stockport, were appointed to refurbish the 720m2

Using Styccobond F3, new carpets were then installed. Styccobond F3 is compatible with almost 70% of the floorcoverings in the F. Ball Recommended Adhesives Guide, and offers excellent wet grab and an early build up of strength, ideal for securing carpet in a broad range of flooring installations.

Managing Director of Goulson Furnishing Fittings, Stuart Goulson, commented: "Our customers expect a high quality finish and performance from us, and we use F. Ball products because we know that they reliably provide that high standard. Styccobond F3 is a staple in our collection, simply because nothing can beat it."

Designed to fit conveniently and quickly over safety footwear, the YULEYS slip on/slip off safety footwear protector enables construction workers, tradesmen and delivery drivers to enter clean environments without the need to remove their dirty footwear.

To meet customer requirements Fortress Distribution has now introduced an additional YULEYS model to the range, made with a high-quality TPR for long-term wear and durability. TPR provides slip-reducing tread for both wet and dry situations, giving users superior traction on surfaces like wood, tile, and linoleum. TPR can be washed using soap and water, and can be sterilized with bleach.

Described as an environmentally friendly and cost-conscious alternative to traditional disposable shoe covers, YULEYS can easily be cleaned with warm water for years of use. The

footwear is a seamless one piece shoe cover made of either SEBS or TPR flexible rubber and comes in a variety of sizes to fit the majority of work shoes and boots.

Featuring a non-slip grip, YULEYS allow users to proceed with their work without removing safety footwear and without the risk of slipping in a paper, plastic, or nylon shoe cover. The TPR model gives slightly better resistance to slipping on wet floors whereas the SEBS version will give better resistance against oils and chemicals.

Director at Fortress Distribution, Alan Matthews said: “We are really excited to be partnering with YULEYS clean step system to bring these unique products to the UK and Ireland. There is a real gap in the market for the solution that YULEYS provides and we can see a tremendous opportunity for these products.” PRODUCTS & SERVICES | 45
