Radley College is a leading independent boarding school founded in 1847, and has been home to the likes of former England Cricket Captain, Andrew Strauss. The College called us to help with their workshop ﬂooring problems.
A leak in the year previous had caused damage to the integrity of the subﬂoor structure, and had caused most of the surface tiles to de-bond. We carried out tests on the ﬂoor using a Concrete Rebound Test Hammer (Schmidt Hammer) to determine the compressive strength of the subﬂoor structure.
Upon analysis of the results we decided to carry out isolated areas of subﬂoor replacement using a specialised polyurethane mortar, and to consolidate the remaining subﬂoor using Fortex, a penetrating hardening primer.
With the subﬂoor in sound condition, we sealed the screed using an epoxy primer. We then laid over with two layers of a high quality epoxy screed to ensure a smooth, ﬂat surface. The ﬂoor was then sealed using Polyseal, a polyurethane UV table anti slip surface sealer for epoxy systems.
