Various PU Screeds which had been installed over the top of an asphalt base were removed. The floor surrounding the drains was saturated and it was decided to remove large areas around the drains and gulleys and to reinstate using a resin screed infill. Prior to this, a flexible joint sealant was applied and the entire area waterproofed using an epoxy DPM.
Once the area around the drains and gulley’s had been filled, a ‘bulk resin’ infill screed was then laid and then finally RXPU 6290 was installed at 9mm, to provide the finished floor. In total, twenty tonnes of flooring was removed and replaced with a resin screed.
