A long-established manufacturing firm in Huddersfield is utilising a superior, smarter, better-suited flooring solution following the team efforts of Picow Electrical Engineering and Kemtile. 

The two companies worked together as part of a design and build project aimed at upgrading the pharmaceutical facility – installing Polysto kerbing where stainless steel kerbs were once a preference.

On this occasion, Kemtile’s George Morton offered insight on how a better flooring solution could be fitted for the available budget. 

Kemtile supported Picow in removing the polymer screed from the design, installing the concrete floor in a single construction – saving time on what was already a very tight construction program. 

By introducing the new concept of Polysto kerbing over stainless steel – which the client had traditionally used on site – Kemtile successfully completed a more functional floor fit for long-term use. 

The concrete was overlaid by Stonclad UR, a high performance polyurethane screed encapsulated with Stonkote HT4 with a texture 2 slip resistant coating. The floor was then surrounded with 300mm high x 100mm wide rebated Polysto kerbing for increased hygiene and wall protection.

Project lead George Morton said: “We have previously had great success with this kind of solution and we knew it was exactly what the client needed. 

“Picow appreciated our advice and insight on how to lay a better suited floor for a lower cost – and we worked together to get the final job done quickly to a high standard. 

“The result is now a robust, cleanroom standard floor that will stand the test of time.”
