‘Flooring by Henton’ Showroom

F. Ball products spark conversations at ‘Flooring by Henton’ refurbishment

Carpet and flooring specialist, ‘Flooring by Henton’ opted for Stopgap 1200 Pro levelling compound and Styccobond F48 PLUS high temperature grade vinyl adhesive to achieve a high quality LVT floor finish in the company’s own showroom: offering visitors instant visual endorsement of the company’s workmanship and attention to detail.

As well as requiring a perfectly smooth subfloor to optimise the aesthetic appearance of luxury vinyl planks, Flooring by Henton needed a vinyl adhesive that develops a high bond strength to hold the planks in place when subjected to very high temperatures, caused by solar gain through the showroom’s floor to ceiling windows.

The first point of action for flooring contractors was to remove old carpet, LVT and wood floorcoverings from the 90m2 floor of the showroom.

Contractors next applied Stopgap 1200 Pro levelling compound over the entire subfloor to create a perfectly smooth base for the receipt of floorcoverings.

The main area of the showroom has a large glass front, with the potential to cause solar gain and extreme temperatures. Therefore, Styccobond F48 PLUS high temperature grade vinyl adhesive was selected to install wood-effect vinyl planks to ensure the floorcoverings would hold firmly in place when exposed to extreme temperatures.

Commenting on the project ‘Flooring by Henton’ Director James Scott said: “Using Stopgap 1200 Pro and Styccobond F48 Plus allowed us to finish the job quickly and remain open while the work was taking place. This created a good talking point for customers coming in and out of the shop, who were intrigued to see floor fitters in action. We always use F. Ball products, because they never let us down. We also get good advice from our local Technical Representative, Phil Nightingale, who provided support throughout the showroom refurbishment.”
