Flowstone was recently appointed to supply and fit the new resin flooring to a new build post office and convenience store for Premier Brands. Read all about it…
Within a retail environment the shop floor area acts as the backdrop to the products on display, making it an integral aspect of the venue’s overall image. The durability of the flooring solutions Flowstone provides means that they will maintain the desired aesthetic despite the constant heavy foot traffic, spillages of food and drinks as well as the abrasions, scuffs, scrapes and scratches inherent to a busy retail environment
Due to the tight timescales, Flowfast MMA resin was selected for the shop fit-out. MMA flooring offers clients a wide range of advantages when compared to alternative hard floor coverings such as ceramic tiles, vinyl or natural stone tiles as well as polyurethane and epoxy resin flooring. The greatest advantage of MMA over these alternative is the speed of installation and drying times. This minimizes any down time or operational loss for the client. Typically MMA flooring reaches it full physical and chemical resistance strength in around 2 hours after installation. Meaning the surface can be subject to full operational use within extremely tight turn around.
Flowfast is available in both smooth and anti slip textured finishes. It is also easy to clean and reduces ongoing cleaning and maintenance costs for clients.
The main benefits of the product are :
- Ready for traffic after just 2 hours
- Seamless, impervious hygienic finish
- Easy to clean and maintain
- High resistance to a wide range of chemicals and oils
- High scratch resistance
- Wear resistant surface for wheeled traffic
- Non Slip
- Can be laid in low temperatures
- Can be flow applied meaning large areas can be quickly resurfaced

Paul Edwards Director at Edwards News Premier Brands said:
“we have always used ceramic tiles in the past but the fast installation of the resin floor allowed the store fit out time to be drastically reduced We’ve found it can be quickly and easily cleaned and had lots of positive comments. It’s proved to be a very cost effective flooring solution. ”
The system is also compatible with our energy saving underfloor heating system and noise reducing acoustic layer. It can also be tailored to suit numerous applications including durable and attractive flooring for reception areas, hotels and commercial kitchens.
