potch sports village tiling

TAL PLAYS ROLE IN REFURBISHMENT AT NORTH WEST UNIVERSITY

TAL played an important role in an extensive tiling project at North West University’s Potchefstroom campus in North West Province. The project entailed refurbishing the five-block Sports Village, a guest house facility providing accommodation for the public, athletes and sports teams preparing for significant upcoming sporting events, and the multi-storey student hostel Kom en Gaan. Tiling in each block could only be installed during sporting off-seasons, whilst tiling in the Kom en Gaan Hostel could only be installed during the 3-month student holidays. TAL therefore meticulously planned stock orders to ensure tiling installations in each block could be completed timeously.

celebrations retirement estate

MULTI-LEVEL TILING SYSTEMS FOR CELEBRATION RETIREMENT ESTATE DEVELOPMENT

TAL was chosen to supply tiling installation materials for the recently constructed Celebration Retirement Estate in Gauteng. Offering secure residential units as well as a lifestyle centre, frail care facility and an indoor swimming pool, the estate is conveniently located in the greater Fourways area of Northriding. The Celebration Retirement Village project specified a total of 70 000 m2 worth of tiling across apartment, free-standing cottages and the common areas of the Estate. With an ageing population living in the complex, tailored multi-level systems were specified for tiling the different areas within a large multi-use development, to avoid any risk of tripping and subsequent injury.

greenstone mall tal

TAL PRODUCTS 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. A terrazzo concrete floor will usually take 28 days to cure before grinding and polishing can begin, however TAL StoneFlow cures in 4 hours. The highly-detailed floor is an eye-catching design of large butterflies, ladybirds and dragonflies using coloured glass aggregates embedded into a light coloured polished screed within an outer field of darker TAL StoneFlow. Level variations between the receiving substrate and the surrounding tile installation required a multi-level approach to install the one-of-a-kind floor.

Ballito junction interior

Fast-track tiling installation at Ballito Junction Regional Mall

When the Ballito Junction Regional Mall underwent a massive development from 10 000m2 to 80 000m2, TAL was chosen to supply tiling materials to ensure a successful installation for the expanded shopping centre. The multi-level tiling system took into account the heavy volume of foot traffic expected in one of the largest malls in the KZN coastal region. Preparation was key, which is why a primer slurry coat of TAL Keymix and TAL Keycoat was applied to the substrate. TAL Goldstar 6 rapid-setting tile adhesive was used as this product allowed for a faster turnaround on site and ensured that the original section of the mall continued trading during the expansion.

FNB Bank city

TAL Chosen for Prestigious FNB Head Office Project

The Bank City precinct in Johannesburg recently benefited from an extensive refurbishment project which entailed the resurfacing of 28,000m2 of flooring across an entire 22-storey, four-basement office building. Surface preparation necessitated lifting of all old carpeting and removal of the residual carpet glue by means of a concrete floor grinder. Because this process left the existing substrate too uneven to receive new carpet tiles, TAL Screedmaster Industrial, was specified for smoothing and levelling the surfaces. Levelling of uneven substrates prior to the installation of new floor coverings is an integral part of the underlayment process that must be managed professionally using the correct floor-levelling compound, tools and expertise.

Ndzundza Portrait

Bespoke fixing solution created by TAL for the Ndzundza/ Nzunza Portrait

TAL is proud to have supplied a bespoke fixing solution for the Ndzundza/ Nzunza Portrait, a larger than life art installation on the west wall of City Property’s North City House in Braamfontein, now renamed Nzunza House. Both a suitable product and a technical specification for the installation was developed to accommodate both the thermal movement expected on the exterior façade, and to fix the crockery items which were pre-assembled onto a mesh backing, effectively creating a giant mosaic mural. The artwork was officially unveiled on Women’s Day, 9th August 2018. Read more about this project here.

TAL PLAYS KEY ROLE IN NEW LOOK MERCEDES-BENZ LIFESTYLE CENTRE MENLYN

The dealership was still trading during the major refurbishment, so the decision was made to tile over the existing tiles. These were thoroughly cleaned and a primer slurry coat consisting of TAL Keymix powder primer and TAL Keycoat was applied before installing the new 600mm x 600mm black porcelain tiles. TAL Bond, in both adhesive and grout systems, gives flexibility for the extreme service conditions of heavy loading, shear force exerted on the tiles from turning car tyres and significant direct sunlight through the large glass shopfronts.

Establishing new movement joints which extended all the way to the substrate, through both layers of tiles, is vital in a tile to tile installation.

TAL PLAYS KEY ROLE IN MAJOR WALL FEATURE AT ANSLOW OFFICE PARK IN BRYANSTON

The large-format wall tile feature in the two triple-volume atria entrances at the Anslow Office Park used porcelain tiles in different sizes, varying from a massive 3 m x 1 m to 300 mm x 600 mm to create a ‘retro-concrete’ effect. Due to the large size, TAL Goldstar 12 was trowelled in a 3m² area in a single operation and the back of the tiles were back-buttered with TAL Goldstar 6 to form a single adhesive system. TAL Bond, allows for any thermal movements within the installation that may arise from sunlight shining through the large windows.
