Ardex provides system solution for Sports Arena.

When Deighton Community Sports Arena, a fully equipped sports and leisure facility in Deighton, West Yorkshire had to refurbish their sports hall following significant water damage, leading manufacturers of commercial flooring systems ARDEX UK were pleased to provide a cost effective, high performance flooring solution. National flooring contractors; Fresco Interiors of Leeds worked in partnership with ARDEX to specify an integrated ARDEX system solution that would prove perfect for this leisure environment.

To commence, the floor surface was pre-smoothed with ARDEX's most advanced low odour latex smoothing compound ARDITEX NA. A self-smoothing, protein free latex levelling compound, ARDITEX NA has been developed for use on virtually all substrates and it can be laid from a feather edge up to at least 12mm in a single application. In addition, thicknesses up to 30mm are possible when ARDEX Aggregate is incorporated into the mix. Offering excellent properties of adhesion and flexibility, ARDITEX NA is perfect for levelling concrete, cement/sand screeds, flooring grade asphalt, quarry tiles and even internal steel decks without priming. Formulated to be ammonia free, ARDITEX NA is ideal for use in sensitive environments, including hospitals, schools and other specialised buildings.

Gerflor Taraflex Sport M Vinyl was installed throughout the 600m² sports hall using ARDEX AF 100 Pressure Sensitive Acrylic Flooring Adhesive. Benefits of ARDEX AF 100 include high yield, low odour and compatibility with under floor heating systems. Specifically designed for the UK flooring market, ARDEX AF 100 incorporates the latest floorcovering adhesive technology and is increasingly recognised by architects, specifiers and contractors as the flooring industry’s most advanced true pressure sensitive adhesive.

“ARDEX is renowned for producing premium performance flooring products. Their ‘system’ approach delivers many benefits to the end user including cost effectiveness, compatibility and of course, the essential product reliability that is so synonymous with the ARDEX name”, enthused Paul Donoghue of Fresco Interiors.
