Mapei have announced that they have been shortlisted at the prestigious annual FeRFA resin flooring awards for “Small Commercial Project of the Year” for their work with Coatech at BDP Architects practice, Bristol.
Mapei’s innovative “Mapefloor Comfort” flooring system in AR/X Grey, was installed to cover 180m2 of flooring in the meeting and bathroom areas simultaneously providing a modern resin flooring solution and acting as a demonstration tool for prospective clients.
Project Manager Mo Aljan commented, “The shortlisting not only reflects how great the Mapefloor Comfort flooring system is, but also all of the hard work Mapei’s technical team and the Installers, Coatech, put in to this project.”
Initially the carpet tiles and multiple layers of vinyl tiles were removed exposing the sub base. A cove was installed to all walls in the washroom area ensuring the floor area remains easy to clean and maintain.
Mapecomfort rubber mat was adhered to the floor with Mapefloor Pore Filler, then coated with the Mapefloor Pore Filler again.
Once this had cured, Coatech applied a coat of Mapei Mapefloor PU 460, a 2-3mm flexible, self-smoothing polyurethane.
To finish, two coats of Mapei Mapefloor Finish 58 W, a matt finish polyurethane coating was applied.
Coatech said “The Mapefloor Comfort Resin flooring system is a fantastic, innovative product and it was great to be involved in the very first installation of it worldwide and work alongside Mapei on this project.”
The comfortable level of flooring is provided from the elastic matting at the base of the system also has excellent soundproofing capabilities, reducing the impact of noise transmission into areas below.
The flooring system has a high resistance to wear, making it ideal in offices where abrasion from constant foot traffic and moveable office furniture such as castor chairs is prevalent.
