Our team here at Optimum Flooring Services Limited have spent many years involved in the supply and installation of specialist contract flooring projects for many different business sectors and domestic projects.

‘We pride ourselves on providing a professional, reliable and friendly service with a high quality finish.
From domestic to large contract flooring installations – our quality of workmanship and client satisfaction are of the utmost importance to us’

The above photo shows our team on site surveying the floor in order to give the best recommendation to the client.

P.1 – Method/Preparation

We prepared the existing floor surface by mechanically grinding using an Innovatech grinding machine with a vacuum attachment to minimize dust. This remote controlled machine provides minimal load and no vibration for the operator while the grinding capacity of the number of square metres per hour increases dramatically.

The existing surface had numerous layers of old paint, all of this needed to be removed by grinding so that we could achieve the desired finish to the clients satisfaction.  Before grinding commenced our team corderned off the area, this ensured that the floor avoids contamination, in addition to ensuring the safety of the passing workers. 

Above is the area once grinding had been completed, the area is now ready for the oil tolerant primer to be applied.

 

P.2 – Application/Installation
Following the preparation, our team would then apply a two-pack epoxy primer for oil contaminated substrates by the use of roller and brush. Next we looked to apply Resdev Deckmaster HFS ID, a three-component polurethane system which is designed
for high friction surfaces, with the highest order of durability, impact, abrasion and chemical resistance to suit the clients needs. 

Once the Resdev Deckmaster HFS ID has been laid in Chelsea Blue, we have this fantastic looking, durable floor with anti-slip properties.

P.3 – Result. 

This project was completed swiftly and to a high standard. The client wanted a good looking, durable floor with anti-slip properties and as always our team delivered. The Deckmaster HFS ID product data sheet confirms the wet and dry slip profiles as;

Slip Resistance (BS 7976 slider #96) System ID: 79 (dry), 67 (wet)

Component Developments supplied and fitted this Heavy Duty Drainage Channel, system type 3110RS.

 

P.1 – Method/Preparation

First we saw-cut the existing floor screed using a three-phase electric floor saw which is self-propelled with hydrostatic transmission. We broke out the floor screed to custom dimensions, ready for the Stainless Steel drainage channels and CIP Gully’s using a remote controlled Brokk machine.

P.2 – Application/Installation

Once the floor had been excavated and removed to skips, our team installed the custom made Stainless Steel drainage channels and CIP Gully’s. These were back-filled using resin bulk due to the quickness of cure time, this enabled us to apply the 9mm Polyurethane Screed within 24 hours and handover to the client.

P.2 – Application/Installation
Onto the next section, where a canning machine would be installed meaning the floor had to withstand constant fluids and chemicals. To combat this we first installed a perimeter of concrete kerbs 60mm x 20mm around the area. A CIP Gully was installed as shown below, with falls in the floor from 60mm down to 10mm formed with resin bulk, this would encourage the flow of any fluids toward the CIP Gully. Once the area was primed we applied a three-pack water dispersed, heavy-duty polyurethane screed at a thickness of 9mm which is chemical resistant and industry specified.

Our team finished this project on time, encountering no problems along the way. This has led to a great working relationship being formed, which is lead to similar projects in the future. Special thanks to Component Developments for a speedy delivery and high quality products.

P.1 – Method/Preparation

The original floor was far from ideal, in addition to repairs, some of the areas of the floor were made up from wooden floor boards as shown below. These needed to be overlaid using 15mm marine ply fixed every 150 centres, this would bring the floor level and accept the application of the system.Tab Content

P.2 – Application/Installation.  

In addition to the repairs, the existing surface was prepared by using a three-phase Innovatech In addition to the repairs, the existing surface was prepared by use of a three-phase Innovatech mechanical grinding machine, fitted with a vacuum unit with self-sealed extraction bags to minimize dust. 

P.2 – Application/Installation

Once the floor was prepared and repairs made where needed using resin bulk, we applied a solvent-free, two-component, epoxy-based Arturo primer. This was followed by Arturo PU3320, a coloured, two-component, water-borne, polyurethane based satin floor finish. To meet the clients needs, we then applied Arturo PU 7900 to the top floor to give a gloss finish. 

P.3 – Result

This project had lots of obstacles, with all different contractors on site at the same time wanting access to all areas, our team had to communicate with various groups to ensure the floor wasn’t contaminated and cured correctly, leading to a timely completion. Special thanks to Arturo for speedy delivery and high quality products.

The floor below, once preparation, repair and primer stages had been completed, had Arturo PU3320 applied to give this satin finish.

P.1 – Method/Preparation

First we uplifted the ceramic tiles by use of a ride-on mechanical tile lifter, followed by the use of an Innovatech three-phase mechanical, vacuum attached grinding machine to remove any existing glue, laitance or weak screed and return the floor to a solid base.

P.2 – Application/Installation

Once preparation has been completed we applied a primer with a full sand scatter to give a mechanical key to the hand laid smoothing screed, which was allowed to cure before applying finished systems.

The tiles have been removed, the area has been primed and scattered with sand, ready for acceptance of smoothing screed.

P.2 – Application/Installation

Following use of an STR mechanical grinding machine to give a mechanical key following prime and scatter, we then applied Resdev Pumathane SL, a three-component, polyurethane, flow-applied, flexible floor topping – as per the photo below. Once cured we applied Resdev Pumador DD Coloured, a UV stable polyurethane coating to achieve the desired finish as this coating has excellent abrasion and chemical resistance.

P.3 – Result

This project was completed over four phases to suit the client’s requirements and to facilitate the ongoing trading of the business with no closure. In addition, to assist the client our team installed a screed to the pit floors of the Bay’s, this was done to SR1 standard., to assist the client our team installed a screed to the pit floors of the Bay’s, this was done to SR1 standard., to assist the client our team installed a screed to the pit floors of the Bay’s, this was done to SR1 standard.

The area in front of the M.O.T Bay’s had a second coat of Resdev Pumador DD Silk with a glass bead incorporated to give non-slip properties.

 


 

Area: 360 M² | The first stage was to prepare the existing surface for contract flooring by mechanically grinding – using the remote controlled Scanmaskin grinding machine.  After the grinding stage, the vacuum attachments were used to prepare, clean and texture the  substrate, prior to making the floor suitable to receive the application of the Uzin PE 360 Plus Primer (specified for absorbent substrates). The surface was now ready and prepped for the application of Uzin PE 414, an efficient and reliable surface applied DPM (Damp Proof Membrane).  The next stage was to follow up with the Uzin RR 201Fibreglass Surface Reinforcement Composite System (for the renovation of substrates).  Finally, the installation was finished off with Uzin Deep Fill, this is a cost effective deep base pump-able thin screed – applied at a nominal thickness of 20mm.

PREPPING FOR CHEESE FACTORY INSTALLFinish of cheese plant floor

To prepare the contract for the following surface system to be applied, OFS utilised the Von Ark mechanical grinding machine. The Von Ark removes existing and damaged floor screed, in addition to abrading the floor surface to install further coatings.  The following application procedure was laid to ensure the floor was up to the high specification required by the ‘Food Hygiene Standards Agency’ for the preparation of food products.  We specified and applied Resdev Pumadur Primer, (this is fully binded with a Quartz Aggregate) and then left to cure over-night.  The next day we applied Resdev Pumadur HF, this is a water-dispersed heavy duty polyurethane floor screed with a lightly textured, non-slip surface. The contract flooring installation was finished with a high durability and hygienic – Resdev Pumadur DD coloured Silk UVR Polyurethane coating.

The existing floor coatings were mechanically removed and the substrate prepared and vacuum cleaned, prior to the application of the HFS ID in Chelsea Blue. (Photo shows anti-slip test rig used for flooring contract).

The application process was as follows:

1. Saw cut around the perimeter of the sample area.

2. Mechanically remove the existing coating system back to the concrete substrate.

3. Mechanically prepare the existing concrete.

4. Vacuum the prepared floor.

5. Apply the HFS ID in Chelsea Blue.


Project Description:

New Food Hall originally had a porous concrete floor with a water based coating which needed bringing up to Food Hygiene Standard for the preparation and service of food products. We applied Resdev Pumadur Primer, fully blinded with a Quartz Aggregate and left to cure over-night. We then applied Resdev Pumadur HF, a water-dispersed heavy duty polyurethane floor screed with a lightly textured surface then followed with a Resdev Pumadur DD coloured Silk UVR Polyurethane coating.

The area size was 225 Sq M and took 4 days from preparation to a high quality finish.
