John’s Square public realm project, the gateway to the centre of Limerick City, has been completed with the specified Ultrascape mortar paving system. The works included an extensive upgrade to public space by the provision of high quality granite paving, new street lighting and traffic calming measures to provide a spacious square establishing an appropriate setting for the historical buildings that surround it. Architect Nicholas De Jong Urban Design specified the BS 7533 compliant mortar paving system from Ultrascape to complete the paving constructions. Familiar with the system’s capabilities and BS 7533 compliance, their selection was straightforward and a regular occurrence. Three materials that bed, prime and grout make up the system, which is available nationwide with bulk silo and ECO options offered as substitutes. Ultrascape Pro-Bed HS is a fine bedding mortar that can be laid from 10mm to 75mm. The product creates the ideal foundation for laying paving elements where a rigid or bound base is required. Ultrascape Pro-Prime slurry primer is specifically formulated to provide an exceptional bond of greater than 2N/mm² between all types of stone. It only requires the simple addition of water before it can be applied to the stone elements. Ultrascape Flowpoint, a rapid setting flowable grout, is fast and efficient to apply, offering the ability to grout significant areas of paving quickly and cleanly. Perfect for wide or narrow joints, Flowpoint can accommodate joint widths of 5-50mm and depths of up to 200mm in a single pass. Paving grouted with Flowpoint can be opened to pedestrian traffic after just 1 hour. The project has improved the square for its many visitors and will protect its heritage. For further information on the Ultrascape mortar paving system, please visit www.ultrascape.co.uk or call 01827 871871. Ultrascape is a brand of the Instarmac Group plc.
