Everbuild Building Products Ltd – A Sika Company are thrilled to announce that they will now be sponsoring the Quick Step Academy and supporting their ongoing pursuits. In February 2015, Everbuild – A Sika Company became the exclusive distributor of the Schönox brand, a name that is synonymous with quality products for the building and renovation industry. These quality products are to be used within the Quick-Step Academy and have already received positive feedback.
The Quick-Step Academy for Excellence in Flooring has proved to be a huge success with almost 200 highly qualified installers being aligned to the brand.
Offering a three day intensive programme packed with activities designed to educate and test the skills of already experienced installers, the Quick-Step Master Installer course operates on a pass or fail basis covering every aspect of wood, laminate and luxury vinyl tiles. Once qualified the installer can offer their customers a two year workmanship warranty fully supported by Quick-Step providing the customer complete reassurance in their work.
One product in particular, Schönox® ZM Rapid, a rapid setting self-levelling compound for internal applications has proved to be popular. Whilst other self-levelling compounds can take 24 hours and above to dry before floor coverings can be laid, Schönox® ZM Rapid is ready after just 90 minutes. It is also incredibly easy to apply, as Lee Thompson, procurement and technical manager at Quick Step Academy discovered, “I just poured it on, walked away and it was totally level with no air bubbles once dry.”
Schönox® iFloor is also a product that will be regularly used by both trainees and qualified professionals as a clean and fast installation method for luxury vinyl tiles. The revolutionary new system incorporates a unique rollable adhesive and is supplied in a handy kit form which includes a primer, adhesive and rollers for both products. Quick-Step Academy are extremely excited about this product with Lee commenting, “the market is crying out for a PS adhesive and Schönox iFloor answers this demand, our installers have tried it and loved it.”
Following on from the success of the Master Installer Scheme, Quick-Step Academy now offer one-day courses designed to improve existing skills and achieve better sales whilst still keeping the Master Installer Scheme at the heart of the operation.
Everbuild Building Products – A Sika Company are excited to be sponsoring such a passionate and highly commended training academy whose primary objective is to train and improve dedicated flooring installers who will go forward and thrive within a highly competitive trade.
