Refurbishing A Warehouse Floor
Newton Specialist Basement Contractor Cast Contracting Ltd (CCL) were tasked with refurbishing a warehouse floor to a robust and fit-for-purpose floor for a new tenant. The total floor area of 1,600 square metres was to be utilised to house building materials and would be subjected to extensive forklift traffic.
After mechanical preparation to remove latents/contaminants and inherent dust from the warehouse floor, Newton 701 HB High Build Epoxy coating was applied via a roller in two coats with an overall coverage of 0.6kg per m2. The fast curing nature of the product meant CCL could treat the entire floor area and be completed over the weekend ready for racking to be installed on the Monday morning.
“CCL were tasked with applying a new epoxy floor to a project that had a very quick turnaround. After speaking with Newton Waterproofing Systems we applied Newton 701HB over the entire floor in one day. Our operatives were very pleased with the workability of the product and how quickly it cured”
– Jamie Tschumi – CCL
