Global aerospace engineering specialists, Moyola Precision Engineering, took to the skies with Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) to help successfully salvage and upgrade an existing floor during a recent expansion programme.
Based in Castledawson, Moyola Precision Engineering is a leading provider of logistical solutions for aerospace, defence, automotive and IT sectors. Due to continued growth, the engineering specialists recently expanded their operations with the redevelopment of an old factory beside their Castledawson HQ.
The old factory had an extensively damaged 40 year old concrete substrate. The client required a specialist flooring contractor who could help salvage and repair the existing concrete substrate and then supply and fit a high build protective floor coating suited to their engineering requirements.
While other trades worked on the building, AFS began the project by preparing the existing 2200m2 concrete floor using their in-house surface preparation equipment.
After aggressive preparation, AFS repaired the concrete floor by supplying and fitting 2 primer scratch coats of MC DUR1212VB mixed with fine quartz to level the floor out – filling all voids and repairing cracked floor joints. New saw cuts were then applied to provide new tidy expansion joints.
After preparation and repair of the floor, AFS then applied a finish with R10 slip resistance using 10% glass bead in the finish roller coat.
The high level of surface preparation and installation methods applied, helped salvage the old concrete floor and provide a hard wearing floor system suitable for the engineering industry.
