F Ball provides the ultimate luxury floor finish at One Hyde Park

Project: One Hyde Park, London

High performance Styccobond B95 flexible wood flooring adhesive from F. Ball and Co. Ltd., the UK's leading manufacturer of flooring adhesives and subfloor preparation products, has been used in the refurbishment of a multimillion apartment in the prestigious One Hyde Park, a luxury residential complex in Knightsbridge, London.

Flooring contractors, Floors of Distinction, based in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, were contracted by The MCT Group to install bespoke Jatoba wood floorcoverings during refurbishment of the apartment. The engineered hardwood flooring was adhered to the subfloor using F. Ball's Styccobond B95, a flexible, moisture-curing adhesive, designed to accommodate the natural expansion and shrinkage inherent in wooden floorcoverings. Quick setting Styccobond B95 also offers a high bond strength and is suitable for use over underfloor heating.

Moisture measurements tests were not necessary, because the subfloor comprised a newly installed system of raised access anhydrite Knauf GIFAfloor panels.

Martin Wright, Contracts Director of Floors of Distinction, said: "We use F. Ball adhesives because of the excellent range that they offer, suitable for every eventuality. We also receive great technical backup from F. Ball, giving us the confidence to specify their products for installations like One Hyde Park, where we have to guarantee the highest quality results."
