Project: Tropical Butterfly, Wildlife and Falconry Centre, Sheffield

Ultra Floor’s Prime IT N and Level IT Super30 have been used in a new state of the art walk-through Lemur enclosure at the Tropical Butterfly, Wildlife and Falconry centre in Sheffield.

‘Lemur Heights’ has taken 6 months to construct and officially opened its doors on July 6th. The accommodation consists of a glass fronted indoor area to shelter the Lemurs in unfavourable conditions and an undercover veranda to allow visitors to get up close and personal with these Madagascan species.

Doncaster based flooring supplier and contractor, Surefit Carpets, have recently finished subfloor preparation and installation in the kitchen area of the enclosure using products from the Ultra Floor range.

The substrate has been treated with Ultra Floor Prime IT N, polymer emulsion primer. Used neat onto non absorbent substrates, it dries to give a tough, well bonded primer ready to receive a cementitious smoothing compound. It was used in this project to prepare the surface prior to levelling with Ultra Floor Level IT Super30.

Level IT Super30 is the original ‘level and lay’ in a day product and utilises specially blended cements and a high quality polymer liquid to give a product that sets in 30 minutes whilst allowing impervious floor coverings to be laid after just 3 hours.

Once dry, the area was overlaid with Altro safety flooring. Level IT Super30 was an ideal solution for Surefit Carpets, who needed to complete the installation within the working day.

Stephen Crosby, sub-contractor for Surefit Carpets, commented ‘Super30 was ideal for this job, allowing us to finish work in good time.’ He continued, ‘we have also used it to complete a recent refit in a high security prison in Doncaster, which required a fast turnaround.’
