Speedy screed replacement in Sainsbury’s


Polymer modified thin bonded levelling screed

Fast drying screed laid at Sainsbury's

When the storage area on the first floor at the Lewes Road shopping centre in Brighton required a new floor topping, the main Contractor (The RG Group) called upon the services of specialist contractor Cemplas Waterproofing and Concrete Repairs Ltd, to provide a new floor surface suitable for pedestrian and pallet-truck traffic.

Cemplas had previously worked for the RG Group laying over 7000m2 of Ronacrete’s Ronafix Screed Mix A at the old Barkers store in Kensington, so they were familiar with both Cemplas and the Ronacrete screeding range. Ronafix Mix A screed is a polymer modified thin bonded levelling screed, which can be laid from 10 to 50mm thick. The strength gain of Ronafix Mix A meant traffic could be permitted after just 24 hours, fitting in with Sainsbury’s operational needs. The Ronafix Mix A screed was pumped directly to the store room, reducing down time and disruption to a minimum.

The existing floor was prepared with a Von Arx planing machine, providing a clean textured surface that was ready for treatment. The floor was then primed and Ronafix Mix A screed was pumped into the storage area in a single operation. The screed was levelled, compacted and trowel finished to provide a new hard wearing storage area floor with minimal disruption to Sainsbury’s staff and customers.
