Flowcrete’s Revolutionary GREEN Floorzone Unveiled At Shopping Centres Expo


9th of September, 2011 Bookmark and Share

Flowcrete UK will be unveiling its pioneering single source flooring package, which sets out to be the most sustainable and complete flooring solution for the retail sector, at the BCSC Conference & Exhibition 2011.

Representing considerable research and development, The GREEN Floorzone covers every aspect of flooring installation within the commercial sector, from substrate through to final floor finish, with the option of underfloor heating and sound-proofing built-in.

Green credentials combine with style - with the floor zone build-up including a choice of seamless resin ‘designer’ floor finishes such as the seamless terrazzo Mondéco Mirrazzo, which can contain up to 60 per cent recycled material and Mondéco Crystal Ice, which contains recycled glass and mirrors, reducing the need for lighting.

The GREEN Floorzone also features a comprehensive selection of products from Flowcrete’s market-leading and newly enhanced Isocrete Floor Screeds range, given a green makeover with a new formulation free from Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) and manufactured from a high percentage of natural and recycled raw materials.

Optional elements of Green Floorzone include the Isowarm underfloor heating system, which offers energy efficient savings of up to 30 per cent compared to conventional heating systems and Isocrete Acoustic Foam, which reduces sound transfer between floors.

The green performance of all these individual elements is measured in eight key areas; environmental efficiency, recycled content, manufacturing efficiency, transport, installation impact, durability, end of life alternatives and third party verification.

This GREEN Floorzone information is published in an ‘at a glance’ guide, to give retail specifiers an informed and comprehensive insight in the sustainability credentials of the Green Floorzone package overall.

Flowcrete will be on stand 10 at BCSC Conference & Exhibition, which takes place on 19-21 September 2011, at Manchester Central and will also show many other innovative flooring solutions.

Flowcrete’s seamless resin floor finishes offer a creative mix of colours, textures, finishes and styles, however practicality is never compromised with surfaces that are highly durable, safe, easy to clean.

Other resin finishes include fast cure Flowfast MMA flooring which can be installed and trafficked in two hours, the stylish stone carpet Rustik, as well as bright and bold self-levelling products.

External surfaces are catered for, with the car park decking system Deckshield, and external resin bonded landscaping finish, Naturewalk. Back of house and maintenance areas are also covered with Flowcrete UK’s range of industrial resin floor coatings.

Alan Dean, Managing Director of Flowcrete UK, said: “After walls, floors represent the largest component in an interior design scheme – and so offer an excellent platform to make a bold statement underfoot, particularly in retail areas.

“Flowcrete delivers systems with the necessary performance and durability characteristics, which also embrace the latest designs - and now with The GREEN Floorzone they herald a new era in sustainability, delivering a choice of products with extensive performance and sustainability credentials as standard.

“We are excited by what we have to offer and we believe The GREEN Floorzone will transform the specification process of flooring systems in the UK within the retail sector and allow architects and specifiers to seamlessly meet the most stringent green construction ratings, such as BREEAM.

“The single source nature of The Green Floorzone also offers further sustainability benefits, with all products arriving on site from one source, with no wastage, and just one contractor responsible for the entire installation – all covered by one Flowcrete warranty.”

For more than 30 years, Flowcrete’s systems have been used extensively in commercial locations, including retail areas, as well as airports, stadia, hotels, hospitals, residential sites, offices, schools, colleges and universities. Within this timeframe, millions of square metres of Flowcrete floors have been installed.

In the retail industry, Flowcrete’s systems have been widely-used in a variety of environments from large-scale shopping centres, department stores and supermarkets through to high street chains, fashion boutiques and other specialised retail units.

Flowcrete also specialises in flooring solutions for supermarkets and multi-occupancy shopping centres.
