Yegin Industries Designs New Floor to Score Sales and Employee Satisfaction

  • Sports court style flooring provides Yegin Industries with the ideal space to showcase products.
  • Flowsport chosen for the project thanks to its durability and design potential.
  • The interior design elements of Yegin Industries’ new facility were a key priority.

Flowcrete has created a floor that will help Yegin Industries bounce, dribble, volley and dunk its way to success!

The sports ball manufacturer Yegin Industries specified a selection of high performance resin flooring solutions from Flowcrete in order to install a creative and unique floor finish throughout its brand new office in the Long Giang Industrial Park, which is situated in Tien Giang Province, Vietnam.

The office was part of a large-scale, multifaceted facility that included an administrative centre, production factory and chemical warehouse as well as utilities areas, a canteen, car park, swimming pool and green spaces.

The plan for the new site was to incorporate the theme of sports into the very fabric of the building itself. The dual purpose of this design scheme was to provide employees with a fun and enjoyable atmosphere while also creating the ideal environment to showcase its products to prospective clients.

This interior design ethos was exemplified in the office’s showroom – which came with a built-in basketball court! Across the building staff areas were also designed to emulate sports courts and gyms to give employees the space and motivation to get active.

The appearance and functionality of the floor in the basketball court style showroom was a priority, as the floor would need to impress clients and provide an engaging space for Yegin Industries to demonstrate its products.

To achieve this appearance as well as ensure that the floor would withstand people running, jumping and playing across the surface, Flowcrete supplied a flooring build-up that was formulated to be robust and able to maintain its visuals for an extended period of time.

1,750 m2 of Isocrete K-Screed was first applied in a 50mm layer so that the substrate would deliver a high-strength platform for the resin coating. Isocrete K-Screed is a semi-dry cementitious screed that incorporates a proprietary additive to produce an early drying, high strength screed.

To showcase the company’s “work hard, play hard” attitude, the designer specified 100 m2 of FlowSport with Deckshield UV Linemarker. This was applied in the showroom and gym room, as it would provide the bright colours and clear patterns necessary to create sports-court style finishes. The resilience of FlowSport’s polyurethane technology was perfect for the gym room, where employees would be exercising during the working hours.

FlowSport is a composite surface that creates a synthetic and flexible sports floor. This system delivers a resilient and uniform surface with a cushioned effect for added spring as well as the easy to clean advantage of a completely seamless surface.

1,650 m2 of the antimicrobial system Flowfresh MF in a light grey colour was also chosen for hygiene critical areas of the building, such as the office, canteen and dormitory areas. This system was specified thanks to its understated aesthetics and superior cleanliness properties. Floors in the Flowfresh range incorporate the Polygiene® antimicrobial additive, which inhibits the growth of bacteria on the floor surface by up to 99.9%.

Find the Flowcrete Floor for You at Ecobuild 2017

South Cheshire College Green Floorzone

On stand C147 of Ecobuild 2017, Flowcrete UK will be showcasing its range of resin finishes and sub floor screeds that have been designed to create superior, environmentally friendly floors as well as introducing new concrete repair products to the UK market!

Flowcrete UK’s green flooring solutions have been utilised by a long list of high profile locations around the country thanks to the ability of these systems to combine sustainability with both functionality and longevity.

The fast drying Isocrete Alpha Screed is particularly popular among developers of large-scale, high-rise and demanding construction projects thanks to the fact that large quantities of it can be quickly and easily installed. It is also one of the greenest screeds on the market, as 95% of the system’s alpha hemi-hydrate calcium sulphate binder is reclaimed from industrial by-products, minimising the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Isocrete Alpha Screed is an evolution of traditional anhydrite flowing screeds, as it has a 20% faster drying time and its laitance free finish means that sanding is not required prior to applying a coating – significantly speeding up the overall installation timescale.

At Ecobuild 2017, attendees will also be able to learn about the Floorzone package, which enables specifiers and architects to source each element of a floor build up from only one place! The Floorzone includes decorative finishes such as the seamless resin terrazzo Mondéco range, green screeds, energy efficient under floor heating and noise reducing acoustic insulation.

As of this year, Flowcrete UK is now also able to supply a range of Euclid Chemical concrete repair mortars. There are many factors that must be considered before selecting a concrete repair solution such as location, climate, in-service conditions, and potential corrosives to name just a few. Having access to Euclid Chemical’s high quality products, which have been the repair mortars of choice in the US for a long time, will ensure that developers can easily access the right option for them.

Flowcrete UK’s Managing Director, Kevin Potter, said: “We’re always looking to develop our products to ensure that the construction industry can easily source the systems required to solve what can be very complex and demanding challenges.

“We constantly evaluate our finishes, screeds, subfloor components and repair materials to get the perfect balance of functionality and application practicality while limiting any environmental impact.”

Flowcrete UK has analysed its products and manufacturing processes in order to make its solutions more environmentally friendly. This has led to limiting the use of substances such as Ordinary Portland Cement as well as supplying its products in UN Certified Intermediate Bulk Containers to reduce packaging waste. The durability of Flowcrete UK’s resin systems also provides end users with green benefits, as the longevity of its floors avoids the environmental damage incurred by a flooring refurbishment.

Thanks to the environmentally pro-active credentials of its systems, Flowcrete is able to assist architects and specifiers to qualify for green building credits through initiatives such as BREEAM and LEED®.

To find out more about sustainable flooring and the newly launched Euclid Chemical concrete repair products, talk to Flowcrete UK’s expert team on stand C147 of Ecobuild 2017, which is taking place from 7-9 March at the ExCel London.
