Birmingham Heartlands Hospital’s Children’s OPD Department flooring project completes using high-performance Ultra Floor sub-floor preparation products, and expertise from Newlay Floors.
One of the country’s largest hospitals, Birmingham Heartlands, needs to be operating smoothly to provide the best in patient care. The refurbishment of their Children’s OPD Department needed to be completed on time without any complications so that day-to-day practice could re-commence.
Experienced contractors, Newlay Floors, carried out the resurfacing. Existing floorcoverings and the old adhesives and smoothing compounds were mechanically removed, followed by new sub-floor preparation using Ultra Floor DPM IT two coat, Prime IT N and Level IT SmoothFlow.
DPM IT two coat is a solvent free, two-part epoxy resin system. The product cures to provide a waterproof surface membrane that allows fast installation of cement-based surfaces, thus reducing waiting time and costs. In this application, Ultra Floor’s DPM IT A was also used providing much needed versatility as this fast curing additivereduces curing times to only 3 hours, allowing the substrate to become waterproof within a single day!
Newlay Floors then prepared the substrate with Ultra Floor Prime IT N, a polymer emulsion primer for non-porous surfaces so it was ready to receive Level IT SmoothFlow. Ultra Floor’s newest self-levelling compound, Level IT SmoothFlow, is designed specifically for levelling surfaces. A product which has superior flow properties providing a fast and easy application, results in a thin, exceptionally strong and perfectly level underlayment that is ready to receive decorative floor-coverings after only 24 hours.
Level IT SmoothFlow has a set time of 2 hours and can be laid at depths from 3 to 10mm - covering an optimum 5.5m² at 3mm thickness.
