Following a successful floor upgrade in their live plant rooms, Seagate turned to Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) once again to upgrade kitchen floors in their Springtown facility.
Seagate is the global leader in data storage solutions, developing products that enable people and businesses around the world to create, share and preserve their most critical memories and business data. AFS had recently helped the worldwide manufacturer successfully replace a failed coating system over 1000 sq metres in their live plant rooms.
Seagate asked AFS if they could also replace another failing floor system in their kitchen areas during their weekend downtime period. Unlike other flooring contractors, AFS is to be able to specify the best flooring system to suit a project’s requirements rather than promote one particular product manufacturer.
After onsite consultation with the client, AFS recommended a MPM Duroglass Crete PU (polyurethane) system. AFS always recommend specialised surface preparation for every project to ensure a successful flooring installation. AFS do not subcontract this vital stage out, but rather use their own in-house specialised surface preparation division.
AFS started the project by removing the failed coating system using vacuum diamond grinding on the main floor area and vacuum-assisted hand-held grinders for edges and other small tight areas. Following preparation, AFS then installed a MPM Duroglass Crete PU screed to the kitchen areas.
A MPM Polistar P867 sealer was then applied with 5% glass bead broadcast to ensure the floor meet with current R10 anti-slip standards. As required by the client, the floor upgrade was successfully completed by AFS over the weekend – ready for the new working week at Seagate.
