Larton Farm Cattery required a high performance finish that would be durable enough to withstand the site’s daily working conditions as well as make sure that the new area would maintain a consistently high standard of hygiene. It was also important that the floor’s colour and appearance would impress clients when visiting the cattery.
To achieve this, 180m2 of Flowfresh SL and 210m2 of Flowshield FX was installed during a one-week application process. The cream coloured Flowfresh SL coating was applied across the cattery area while Flowshield FX was used to create a stunning black walkway around the room.
Implementing a rigorous and effective cleaning regime would be critical, especially for contamination prone areas such as underneath the animal cages. The seamless and impervious nature of the chosen flooring solutions was ideal, as any contaminants can be quickly and easily removed from the area. The antibacterial agent Polygiene® is incorporated within every Flowfresh floor, this additive is able to kill up to 99.9% of bacteria, including the Parvovirus and MRSA.
Foot traffic, frequent cleaning and feline habitation would be the main challenges facing the floor. The robust characteristics of Flowcrete’s industrial flooring range meant that Larton Farm Cattery’s new finish would not deteriorate when faced with the realities of daily use.
Prior to installing the floor, numerous bespoke samples and consultations were provided in order to best tailor the project to the client’s budget and time frame as well as ensure that the work could fit in with other on-site contractors.
