1053m² of Flowshield SL self levelling industrial standard epoxy resin flooring from Flowcrete was recently installed at a manufacturing plant in Glasgow.

Guala Closures produce non-refillable and aluminium bottle closures in their manufacturing plant based on the Old Mill Park Industrial Estate in Kirkintilloch. Technical Manager at Guala Closures researched a number of different types of flooring solutions for the plant, deciding on Flowcrete epoxy resin flooring after seeing it in a factory and being impressed with how good it still looked after years of foot, forklift and vehicle traffic.

Flowshield is an industrial self levelling epoxy resin flooring ideal for production areas thanks to its seamlessness and easy of maintenance. Guala Closures chose a bright blue colour for their installation because it gave the area a clean look.

The installation of the epoxy resin flooring was carried out by local Flowcrete approved contractor, Industrial Floor Treatments Ltd (IFT) of East Kilbride. Greg Love, Managing Director of IFT, worked the Guala Closures installation to strict deadline to a level of quality that left Flowcrete Sales Director, Alan Dean, very pleased.

”There was a strict two week window for the work during a factory shutdown so there would be no production loss to the client," says Love.

IFT had to remove the existing vinyl and latex flooring and prepare the base before they could start installing the Flowshield SL epoxy resin flooring, however this did not hinder the progress of the project, which was completed ahead of deadline in just 11 days.
