TAL StoneFlow specified for unique flooring project at Greenstone Shopping Centre
A one-of-a-kind floor designed for the refurbishment of the food court at Greenstone Shopping Centre in Edenvale, Johannesburg, was installed using TAL StoneFlow, a fast track, industrial, terrazzo-look decorative flooring system.
The highly-detailed food court floor, designed by architects Bentel Associates International, entails the transformation of the existing floor into an eye-catching design of large butterflies, ladybirds and dragonflies, using coloured glass aggregates embedded into the seamless, polished screed.
Whilst polished, decorative and seamless concrete floor solutions are in high demand, these terrazzo floors can take up to 28 days to cure before grinding and polishing can commence.
Rapid-setting TAL StoneFlow however, is polishable within four hours of installation, and is designed to produce a durable and hard-wearing surface, which is very well suited for this high foot-traffic area in the shopping centre. Furthermore, the product is shrinkage-compensated, durable and abrasion-resistant, and its seamless, smooth, noise-reducing substrate is easy to maintain. It is especially designed for use in industrial environments, on both new construction and renovation projects. It is designed for applications exposed to heavy traffic and abrasion, such as factories, warehouses and production areas. It is also suitable for commercial and residential applications.
As a cement-based, self-smoothing, heavy-duty decorative screeding system, TAL StoneFlow is available in a wide range of colours and aggregate finish. To achieve the desired aesthetic, the products and aggregates chosen for this project, were manufactured and supplied to specified RAL colours. The unique floor was installed by TAL approved applicator, ThinkFlood Flooring Specialists.
