Due to a number of failed vinyl floor systems at their contemporary restaurant in Scarva, Sinton’s at the Bridge, turned to Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) to install a floor system suitable for kitchen and restaurant environments.
Set in the idyllic village of Scarva, Co Down, Sinton’s at the Bridge restaurant provide traditional food presented in a modern contemporary manner using the finest locally sourced produce. The popular restaurant required a flooring contractor to help remedy numerous failed vinyl floor systems in their kitchen area.
Vinyl flooring can not withstand high temperatures, cleaning, spillage and daily wear and tear in a modern and busy kitchen. In such environments vinyl floors break at the seems, leaving the concrete floor unprotected and prone to excessive damage.
At Sinton’s at the Bridge 2 previous vinyl floor installations had failed in the kitchen area, allowing fats, greases and cleaning detergents to aggressive damage the concrete floor. With extensive experience in providing floor systems suitable for kitchen and restaurant environments, Sinton’s at the Bridge turned to AFS.
AFS began the project by removing the old vinyl flooring, which showed aggressive damage to the concrete screed. AFS repaired the concrete substrate with a strong polymer modified sand/cement screed. Surface preparation was then also carried out on the other sections of the floor to help remove further contaminants. AFS then applied 2 coats of liquid Damp Proof Membrane (DPM) before installing a 9mm Resdev Pumadur system. This was broadcast and sealed to give a R10 slip resistant finish.
The new installed flooring system meet the requirements of both the client and of today’s demanding restaurant and food production industry.
