Sika pulled out all the stops when providing a robust and impressive flooring solution for a hair and beauty wholesaler in Greater Manchester.
Alan Howard Hair and Beauty Supplies, in Stockport, required easy-to-maintain and aesthetically pleasing flooring for its 750m2 trade supply warehouse.
Specialist installers, Warrington-based Quest Industrial Flooring, turned to Sika to provide the ideal solution which began with Sikafloor 161 – an economic, two-part low viscosity epoxy resin primer for the concrete substrate, offering easy application and short wait times.
Sikafloor 161 also provided an integral Damp Proof Membrane (DPM) to prevent moisture from passing into the open interior warehouse space.
Sika Comfortfloor – sometimes described as ‘liquid applied vinyl’, given the polyurethane resin flooring is seamless – was then applied.
Specified in pure white with a smooth finish, Sika Comfortfloor suited the end clients’ requirements to impress customers with the clean bright finish whilst remaining hard wearing – perfect for the high-usage warehouse space.
Sika’s Comfortfloor also provides a softer resistance to other traditional flooring, as well as acoustic design to the highest of standards.
Mark Bushell, National Sales Manager Flooring and Refurbishment at Sika, said: “The client wanted to ‘wow’ customers, but also provide a durable and safe flooring solution.
“Sika Comfort Floor ticks all the boxes for robustness, reliability and low maintenance – and with its wide range of colours, the choice of innovative design.”
Jonathan Littler, Sales Director at Alan Howard Hair and Beauty Supplies added: “We are thrilled with the end result – the seamless solution is great and the white finish is very striking.
“The on-site support from Sika and stock supply was extremely impressive.”
