In order to create a traditional ‘old-town’ aesthetic, architects from Akitek Istibina selected Deckshield ID in black and bright yellow Deckshield UV Linemarker for the 410 m2 walkway space, generating the appearance of tarmac with yellow lines.
The juxtaposition of the black Deckshield with the other areas of the food court creates the visuals of a road and pavement. Often used in car parks, Deckshield ID is a flexible, solvent free polyurethane car park deck coating system. Thanks to its textured polyurethane coating, this material includes chemical and slip resistance properties, providing a safe environment for visitors, as these are areas where food and drink are likely to be spilt and so face increased exposure to cleaning chemicals.
To create a safe environment for food preparation, Flowfresh HF was used in the kitchen and stall areas, spanning 350 m2. This slip-resistant polyurethane screed contains Polygiene®, an antibacterial additive that kills up to 99.9% bacteria. Slip resistance and heat resistance are also beneficial properties to have in kitchen floors, which can regularly be exposed to heat from cooking apparatus and spillages. Flowfresh is also HACCP International certified, allowing the food court manager to rest assured that the hygiene standards of the food preparation areas are high.
The client was delighted with the end result and the installation process taking just two weeks to complete, ready for the food court’s opening in December 2017.
