Leading builders merchant, Macnaughton Blair, required a specialist flooring contractor to help them renovate one of their main outlet and distribution facilities in Belfast. Following previous successful engagements in their Eglington, Ballymoney & the Isle of Man stores, Macnaughton Blair turned to Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) once again.
Macnaughton Blair’s project requirements demanded a new floor system that was both decorative, yet hard wearing for both foot and vehicle traffic. Being a preferred supplier for all the main global flooring manufacturers, AFS was able to review the specifications and recommend the best-suited flooring system for Macnaughton Blair – a MPM Duroglass Flake System.
With extensive damage to the old concrete floor in the Belfast facility, AFS began by using their own in-house specialised surface preparation equipment.
The old concrete substrate was prepared using vacuum shot blasting and single head grinding to remove contaminants and help give a key for a new floor system to be applied. Remedial repairs on other badly damaged sections of the floor were also repaired using epoxy resin.
Following preparation, AFS then applied MPM Duroglass P1/2 as the primer coat over the prepared concrete substrate. A MPM Duroglass P5/4 screed was then hand troweled on, with decorative coloured flakes broadcasted into the screed. Finally grout (Duroglass P51LV) and seal coats (Polistar Deco) were applied to protect the new floor and complete the project.
The new MPM Duroglass Flake floor system gives the client a not only a decorative floor, but also one that is hard wearing (to both foot and vehicle traffic) and chemical resistant – perfect for a major retail and distribution outlet like Macnaughton Blair.
