Mapei aids a safe floor installation at Sunningdale

May 5, 2023

A Mapei system has been used by Titan Flooring to promote a fast and safe floor installation at Sunningdale SEN School in Sunderland.  The project, which included installation of vinyl and carpet tiles throughout the £12.5 million new-build school, was completed for Kier, a leading UK infrastructure services, construction and property group.

Sunningdale SEN School is the city’s only specialist school for children with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties, aged 2-11.  The new school replaces an existing facility and now provides extensive therapy provisions including rebound therapy, hydrotherapy pool, sensory facilities and soft play. Each of the new classrooms includes a large storage area for mobility equipment and, across the wider site, the school benefits from informal play and grass playing fields, alongside a wetlands area, nature trail and habitat area. 

During the installation, Titan Flooring installed Mapeproof One Coat – a single application damp proof membrane - to protect the new floor coverings from residual moisture.  All-purpose primer, ECO Prim T Plus, was then applied to bond the damp proof membrane to the levelling and smoothing compound - Latexplan Trade.  ECO Prim T Plus features a solvent-free, low odour formulation, with EMICODE EC1 Plus for very low emissions of VOC

Following installation of the Latexplan Trade – which benefits from a low odour and protein-free formulation - Titan used two Mapei adhesives for the floor installation: solvent-free Ultrabond ECO Tack TX+ carpet tile tackifier and Ultrabond ECO V4 Evolution all-in-one adhesive for the vinyl.  Both adhesives also feature a very low VOC formulation, with EMICODE EC1 Plus certification.
