High performance tile adhesive and grout by Saint-Gobain Weber, the leading UK manufacturer and formulator of innovative materials for the façades, construction mortars and flooring sectors, has been supplied for three new DFS retail furniture stores in Cork, Cannock and Stirling.
Large format 600 x 600mm Italian porcelain floor tiles were supplied by specialist distributor Nick Firth Tiles, Sheffield, together with high performance tile adhesive and grout by Saint-Gobain Weber. As store fit-outs are delivered to challenging schedules the specialist fit-out contractor chose the rapid strength characteristics of weber.set rapid SPF. This highly polymer-modified adhesive ensures that tiles are ready for grout in just two hours allowing faster access for other trades.
weber.set rapid SPF is a flexible, cement-based tile adhesive and is ideal for fixing ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles to walls and floors. It has the added benefit of Low Dust Technology™ which keeps the working environment cleaner and dust free and can be used as a pourable adhesive for large tiles.
In these DFS stores weber.joint pro, a water repellent, cement-based wall and floor grout has been used providing improved resistance to staining while achieving a longer-lasting ‘clean’ appearance. Saint-Gobain Weber’s popular Mould Stop Technology provides lasting protection from mould growth, is available in 11 colours and suitable for joint widths of up to 10mm.
The new generation design concept created by John Evans Interior Architecture & Design Limited, Birmingham, is being implemented in all new DFS stores. The DFS brand, a successful and expanding business and now the largest company of its kind in Europe, focuses on inspirational furniture and is acknowledged as Europe’s number one sofa specialist.
