Malcolm Allan Butchers, Falkirk

Project: Malcolm Allan Butchers, Falkirk

A renowned Scottish meat producer has recently refurbished its modern 25,000sq ft factory, with the entire factory floor primed and prepared to meet the demands of a busy production line thanks to the installation of high quality products from Schlüter-Systems.

Nearing completion, this Falkirk factory has been completely refitted throughout to ensure that high quality meat products can be produced within high quality surroundings. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the market leader in tile solutions has been used to secure protection for flooring subjected to high mechanical stresses and continuous use.

Movement joints from the Schlüter®-DILEX range were specified and installed throughout the factory premises, providing essential protection against cracks and pressure from pedestrian traffic and heavy loads. Installed by experienced tiler, Nicky from Stenhouse Tiling, the maintenance free movement profiles for tile, natural stone and surface coatings proved to be a cut above the rest.

Nicky commented, “Malcolm Allan Butchers is a household name in the region and so it is understandable that they want the best products for their new flooring to match their high standards. Therefore, the Schlüter®-DILEX range was ideal.

“To this is the first time I have installed Schlüter-Systems on any other projects, I was really impressed with the ease of installation and the end result. The movement joints were perfect to fit into the expansion gaps and they match up with the interior as a whole thanks to the great range of colours and materials available. I would definitely recommend these innovative products to other tilers and look forward to working with and discovering more about the extensive Schlüter-Systems range in the future.”
Carl Stokes, Divisional Manger at Schlüter-Systems comments, “Movement joints from the Schlüter®-DILEX range offer secure edge protection and maintenance free solutions for surfaces exposed to continuous pressure and traffic, making them particularly important within this new factory facility which will be used heavily on a day-to-day basis.

Whilst matching the flooring and interiors, the Schlüter®-DILEX profiles will be working to the best of their ability beneath the surface, whilst the tile installation still remains appealing and flawless above.

All profiles are installed at the same time as the tile covering and a wide variety in various material combinations are available, depending on the mechanical or chemical stresses expected on the covering.
