The UZIN Turbolight system was used to install 1250 m2 of flooring at Southend Casino, Essex. Polished Concrete Designs Ltd choose the Turbolight® System to rapidly create a lightweight floor to reduce weight difficulties within the buildings structure. The numerous levels and the varying condition of the substrate dictated the need for a product that could cope with all the variants, carry good point loads and gave the client a billiard table finish. Due to the buildings structural restrictions a normal concrete screed would have been too heavy and could only have possession of 20% of the area at any one time.
The solution to each of these required parameters existed within the UZIN product range. After the initial visit from the UZIN Technical team, a specification was formulated between Polished Concrete designs and UZIN which resulted in the supply and install of the floor. The unique combination of individual components, comprising of UZIN NC 194 Turbo, UZIN RR 201 and UZIN NC 195 allowed a sound and level floor to be created even on the problematic substrate. After cleaning the substrate, Polished Concrete Designs Ltd first applied a DPM as a sandwich membrane between the base concrete and the screed. UZIN NC 194 Turbo screed was then pumped to a depth of 50 mm, before the UZIN RR 201 reinforcement mesh was installed on the surface. Finally UZIN NC 195, bonded cement leveling compound was applied at a thickness of 10 mm. The new floor was then exceptionally well finished.
John Barry, from Polished Concrete Design said, “The Uzin sales team, technical support and the companies’ representatives were exemplary. The whole job was straight forward, the product and its sequence of applications was easy and clearly instructed. An easy product to work with producing a material and eventually a surface exactly as anticipated.”
