Leading manufacturers Resin Surfaces Limited (RSL) and expert installers Resintek Services Ltd have teamed up to supply commercial flooring to one of the Hilton group’s newest London hotels.
The Hilton London Bankside is based on Great Suffolk Street, SE1 and is popular with tourists keen to be close to the Tate Modern, Shakespeare Globe Theatre, London Bridge and other attractions in the capital.
RSL worked with Resintek to meet the brief, installing 1300sq metres of Resuthane™ TG69 and 650sq metres of coving to the hotel’s kitchen and service areas.
Market-leading Resuthane™ TG69 is a heavy duty, food-grade flooring system, providing seamless, textured, non-slip and non-taint properties that are ideal for food preparation areas.
RSL and Resintek have established an excellent reputation for commercial kitchen flooring in recent years installing systems across London, including the Michelin-starred Le Gavroche restaurant, run by Michel Roux Jnr.
As part of the work for the Hilton London Bankside RSL and Resintek also supplied flooring for the hotel’s external entrance lobby, known as a porte-cochere.
Already featuring a striking set of wall-coverings, this impressive 137sq metre entrance required a solution that suited the aesthetics of the hotel, but also needed to be hard-wearing, have excellent slip resistance and be able to withstand all weathers.
RSL and Resintek recommended a bespoke decorative system that showcased their capabilities as problem solvers.
Commercial Director at RSL, Martin Wroe, said: “Commercial kitchens are bread and butter projects for us. Resuthane TG69 is well suited to this type of environment as it ticks all the boxes.
The porte-cochere was something that needed a bit of extra thought as there were a number of factors to consider. However, we worked closely with all parties involved to provide a solution, which suited the project requirements nicely and demonstrated our unique approach to problem solving. That’s just one of the things we are extremely good at.”
Established in 1982, RSL is a specialist manufacturer of resin floor and wall finishes and part of the Sherwin Williams Company.
It supplies solutions to a variety of sectors as well as hospitality, including industrial, retail, aerospace, food and drink, pharmaceutical and healthcare.
