Restaurant Kitchen Flooring
Project Overview: Restaurant Kitchen Flooring
Preparation of existing condition: The first step in the prep phase was to install key-ways at all terminations to ensure system thickness while eliminating any elevation differences. The next step was to mechanically abrade the substrate to remove laitance and achieve a mechanical profile by using a diamond grinder. Next, we identified and removed all delaminated flooring. The final step for the prep work involved vacuuming the entire area and applying tape at terminations to create clean lines.
Existing Conditions: This installation was for a pristine country club in Blue Bell, PA. The kitchen for their banquet hall was extremely outdated and presented a safety hazard to the employees as the floor was very slick and slippery.
Products Installed: Once all the prep was completed we applied the system base-coat of Fastop SL urethane cement and broadcast
into it using flint shot to create an anti-slip texture. Once the basecoat was cured we ran hand-stones over the floor to ensure an even texture. Then we began to work on the cove base, the first step was to apply a cove Primer of GP3569 multi-purpose epoxy resin. Once that was given time to cure we applied a radial cove base mortar. Once the mortar was all set up we top-coated the entire kitchen floor using Gp4850 Polyaspartic topcoat for added chemical resistance and compression strength.
Conclusion: The main obstacle we were presented within this project, was time. We came in on a Friday night and worked throughout the weekend to make sure this job was completed. There could be absolutely no set back because the country club was hosting a private event on Monday and needed full access to the kitchen.
