The existing floor tiles, which had started to debond posed a trip hazard and therefore needed to be removed. The client also advised they were experiencing problems with standing water. The client needed a flooring contractor that could take on the whole package, including the removal of the existing tiles, installation of a new screed to create adequate floor levels, new drainage and a hardwearing, slip-resistant floor finish.
A 4-star hotel, in the South of England, contacted RESYN when they decided to update the floor around their swimming pool. The existing floor tiles, which had started to debond posed a trip hazard and therefore needed to be removed. The client also advised they were experiencing problems with standing water.
Following the removal of the existing floor tiles, the installation of a new screed was required to build back the levels and ensure there were adequate falls in the floor for water to run back into the pool.
Throughout the installation, the gym remained open, and it had been advised that the pool closure needed to be kept to an absolute minimum. RESYN installed the Degafloor Deep Fill Mortar Repair system, a fast-curing underlay product, to ensure that the refurbishment programme could continue with no downtime for curing.
The existing drain was removed and replaced by RESYN, along with the lightbox and leveller covers, which all received new stainless-steel units. New trim was fixed around the perimeter of the pool and the MMA resin system, which has an excellent bond to metal surfaces, was abutted up to all the stainless-steel items.
The Degafloor QTA system used within the project is a quartz-trowelled system that can be laid to falls. The system is broadcast with aggregate to provide an extremely slip-resistant finish, even under wet conditions, making it ideally suited to a swimming pool surround. Coved skirting was installed around the perimeter of the room creating a completely impervious finish, with no weak spots and therefore reducing future maintenance costs.
The full refurbishment was completed over 12 days, ensuring that the closure was kept to a bare minimum.
Alex Forrester, Technical Sales Executive, comments, ” At my initial meeting with the client they advised they required an anti-slip floor that would eliminate the current situation they had with standing water. They specifically requested that the closure be kept to a minimum as they are a member’s club as well as facilitating the hotel, which remained open throughout the installation.
The client was extremely satisfied with the end result and felt they now have a floor finish that is much better suited to the environment.”
