Yegin Industries Designs New Floor to Score Sales and Employee Satisfaction
10 Apr 2017
- 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 Asia 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 Asia 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 Asia 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 m2of 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%.
