Ultra Floors' fast track installation at Airport Hotel

16 March 2012

Ultra Floor’s DPM IT one coat, Prime IT N and Level IT SmoothFlow have been used to transform part of the Travelodge at Gatwick Airport.

CFA members, T C Carpets & Flooring Ltd. have recently finished 700m² of sub-floor preparation and Amtico floor covering installation in the hotel’s restaurant and kitchen areas using Ultra Floor products.

Gatwick Airport Travelodge, a 3 star hotel, is part of the fastest growing and second largest budget hotel chain in the country, with over 470 hotels across the UK. The hotel is one of several sites servicing this, one of the UK’s largest airports, with some 33 million passengers travelling through every year.

Ultra Floor DPM IT is a two part epoxy resin damp proof membrane system available as a one coat or two coat with an optional accelerator additive. The product cures to provide a waterproof surface membrane that allows fast installation of cement-based surfaces. DPM IT one coat reduces waiting time and costs significantly and strengthens the surface of almost all substrate types. It was used on this project prior to priming with Ultra Floor Prime IT N.

Ultra Floor Prime IT N is a polymer emulsion primer designed to promote the adhesion of Ultra Floor smoothing underlayments to smooth non-porous substrates with a relative humidity of up to 92%. It was applied to the treated substrate and left to dry for up to an hour before levelling with Level IT SmoothFlow.

Level IT SmoothFlow is a single part concrete floor leveller. The product contains a blend of specially graded fillers, fine cements and polymers for smoothing and levelling uneven internal floors, prior to the application of decorative floor coverings. Level IT SmoothFlow is suitable for trowel application, yet formulated so excellent flow can be achieved when applied by pump, maximising the product’s usage. Such flow characteristics allow for optimum coverage, of up to 5.5m² at 3mm thickness, resulting in a thin, exceptionally strong and perfectly level underlayment.

This project is one of several that T C Carpets have completed at Gatwick Airport using the Ultra Floor range. Tony Morbey, Managing Director, commented ‘we are always happy to use Ultra Floor products because of their excellent performance and workability.’
