Ultrascape fit for royal ancestry
The idyllic Scottish town of St Andrews, known as the ‘home of golf’ and where the royal love affair began between Kate and Wills, recently underwent a public realm improvement scheme where the Ultrascape mortar paving system was specified.
The scheme was to relay a mixture of new and reclaimed setts on Market Street, one of the town’s main shopping areas. It took place in two halves, keeping the street open throughout.
The work was completed using Ultrascape’s BS 7533 compliant mortar paving system. The system, a range of bedding, priming and jointing materials, meets and exceeds the strict demands of BS 7533. It offers the reassurance of being independently tested by a UKAS accredited laboratory, which verifies its capabilities; an essential requirement when selecting materials for such a scheme.
What’s more, all Ultrascape materials are manufactured in the UK under the exacting requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. All customers are supported with technical advice and worked with closely at specification stage. These premium products have been chosen by many specialists for an ever-expanding portfolio of major schemes across the country.
Ultrascape Pro-Bed HS is a fine bedding mortar that can be laid from 10mm to 75mm. The product creates the ideal foundation for laying paving elements where a rigid or bound base is required. It is available in either a bulk silo or 25kg bags.
Ultrascape Pro-Prime slurry primer is specifically formulated to provide an exceptional bond of greater than 2N/mm² between all types of stone. It only requires the simple addition of water before it can be applied to the stone elements.
Ultrascape Flowpoint, a rapid setting flowable grout, is fast and efficient to apply, offering the ability to grout significant areas of paving quickly and cleanly. Perfect for wide or narrow joints, Flowpoint can accommodate joint widths of 5-50mm and depths of up to 200mm in a single pass. Paving grouted with Flowpoint can be opened to pedestrian traffic after just 1 hour.
