Bona products have been used by Timbered Flooring, Bona Certified Contractors, for the installation and finishing of a 20mm engineered, dark fumed oak parquet floor at London’s new urban hotel, Assembly London.
First, Bona D501 primer was applied to the WBP plywood subfloor, and then the parquet blocks were stuck down using Bona R848 silane adhesive. This blocks were then finished with Bona Craft Oil 2K (Frost) and buffed back again to achieve a white limed effect in the grain, which also took away some of the darkness of the fumed oak.
After, that, two coats of Bona Traffic HD (silk matt) lacquer – Bona’s most durable polyurethane finish – were applied to provide the hard wearing surface required in the busy bar area. Both Bona Craft Oil 2K and Bona Traffic HD allowed the Timbered team to work within a tight timetable, due to their fast curing time.
“We also provided a maintenance specification to the client which included regular cleaning with Bona Cleaner and an annual rebuffing and resealing with Traffic HD. Following a maintenance regime like this means the floor will always look good and the expense and downtime caused by sanding it back to bare wood will be avoided,” said Laurence Warburton from Timbered Flooring.
Available in a range of 11 standard colours, Bona Craft Oil 2K can also be turned into custom shades that can be mixed on request. Already a hard wearing finishing treatment when used on its own, the oil can also be overcoated with any version of Bona Traffic to provide ultimate durability – a useful option for busy public areas like Assembly London’s rooftop bar space.
Opened in May 2018, Assembly London is located in the centre of the city’s thriving West-End. Fun, sophisticated and playful, the hotel gives everything that matters for a great night’s sleep!
