Quest Industrial Flooring installed a Sika Comfortfloor Decorative Pro for Stick ‘n’ Step. The charity puts great price on having its classes fit with the right floor, as most of their work takes place on it. A fit for purpose and high performance replacement was necessary so that they can keep supporting the young people with cerebral palsy with the right education.
“The team at Stick ‘n’ Step needed to replace an old, uneven, and sloping floor with a brand new, state-of-the-art flooring solution for our work with children and young people with cerebral palsy. From quote to completion our team was kept up to date with progress and had regular explanations of the different phases involved in the work,” explained Matt Meaney, Development Manager at Stick ‘n’ Step.
The new system is smooth, durable, slip resistant, and resin based, while holding excellent shock absorption properties. Its cushioning layers provide a comfortable surface to learn and play, while its durability and easy to clean benefits help maintain the health and safety standards, which is paramount for a children’s learning environment.
Quest Industrial Flooring had only four weeks to complete the project and the discovery that the sub-base underneath the existing wood and vinyl flooring required a week’s worth of repairs, turned it into a difficult challenge. However, the company managed to do it and the new floor was ready at the start of the new school term.
“Thanks to Sika’s advanced floor system, the technical know how and attention to detail of our installers and the understanding of close collaboration between client, contractor and manufacturer, the ideal solution for the school’s 90m2 classroom floor was created,” said Mark Jones, Contracts Director at Quest Industrial Flooring.
