TAL supplies adhesives to new Virgin Active gym

By Tal | 2014-12-24


As another year draws to a close; we are looking back at some prestigious projects of the past. Last year, professional contractors, Farquharson Construction, were contracted to extend and refurbish the Victory Park Shopping Centre. The project saw a new extension as well - Virgin Active Victory Park gym. 

The gym is state-of-the-art, boasting a heated lap pool, lounge, group exercise studios, a steam room, a sauna and cardio floor in addition to functional training areas. The reception and wet areas used 3000 m² of porcelain tiles and TAL Goldstar 6 rapid-set adhesive, TAL Keycoat Primer and TAL Epoxy grout was used in the two month installation process.

As TAL Fine Epoxy Grout is resistant to most chemicals, it was ideal to use in the applications where hygiene is important – especially in the gym’s change rooms and swimming pools, areas where bacteria and mould growth may commonly occur. As the installation had to be completed within a strict time frame, we supplied TAL Goldstar 6, which allows for full traffic within six hours of the application – should the site and ambient conditions permit. For better substrate adhesion, the surface was coated with TAL Keycoat Primer before the tiling installation started. The project was completed within a nine-month timeframe and the quality of workmanship produced was of the highest standard.

At TAL, we offer a 10-year warranty on any tiling installation – provided that both the Materials and Methods specifications are strictly followed and that the installation is carried out by a registered TAL tiler, while being monitored by a TAL representative. This is how we ensure that our clients receive a high-quality, lasting installation within the time they have to complete their tiling project.
