School Atrium Gets Decorative Flooring Solution With Resuflor Deco Flake
Resuflor HB incorporating Resuflake used to create a hard wearing finish which is safe, cleanable and decorative for school footfall
A new flooring finish was required for the atrium in the Radclyffe school in Oldham, Greater Manchester, which hundreds of children use or pass through each day.
Because the atrium floods this area of the school with so much light through a Perspex roof, it meant whatever was chosen had to be UV stable, hard wearing and safe.
With hundreds of children crossing the floor each day, priorities were for an improved decorative finish which was safe, suitable for steps and compatible with existing large expansion joints as there had been a lot of movement in this building.
The system also had to be economic, hard wearing, easily cleaned, have low odour during application and chemical resistance, slip resistance and be non-dusting. Sherwin-Williams' technical flooring experts looked at their diverse range of options for this specific application covering 800 sq metres.
The floor finish chosen was a multi-coat resin system incorporating decorative multi-coloured Resuflake, with clear seal coats ensuring strong stability because of the amount of natural light coming into the area.
This complements adjacent flagstone areas in the school atrium, and provides a continuous flooring system which is safe, easily cleaned and hard wearing for the long term.
Because the system was applied to a concrete substrate, it also became a part of the building rather than an add-on and meets all original requirements.
