Sikafloor Supplies Solution for Bank

Sika anti-static floor system in bank

Sika supplied a perfectly-level, anti-static floor system to protect highly-sensitive IT equipment on behalf of one of the world’s leading banks.
The project involved the installation of a safe and stylish surface at a new building attached to the existing premises of global bank and finance services firm.
The new construction was built to contain a host of vital computer software, requiring flooring of the utmost smoothness, strength and anti-static properties to safeguard the efficiency of the company’s hi-tech communications. Sika’s supremely-smart and reliable built-up system proved more than ideal for the task.
Sikafloor MultiDur ES-24 ECF was selected by the project’s main contractors, to install the new 1,000m2 surface. GSS Flooring diamond-grounded the substrate to prepare the ground for a 30mm layer of Sikafloor Level 30, a fast drying, cementitious screed. Sikafloor-161, a two-part epoxy primer for concrete substrates with excellent bond strength was then applied, followed by a conductive layer including a copper tape grid. The surface’s anti-static layer was provided by Sikafloor 220W, a two-component, water-based epoxy coating with high electrostatic conductivity. Sikafloor 262ASN supplied the smooth, high-gloss finish. The multi-purpose binder also offers optimum mechanical and chemical resistance, making it the ideal solution for a variety of highly-trafficked work spaces.
Barry Nicholson, director at GSS Flooring, said: “We specified Sika for this extremely high-profile project as we believed it offered the best-quality finish – we were not wrong. Not only did Sikafloor MultiDur ES-24 ECF perform as well as we expected, Sika offered invaluable technical advice throughout the programme.”
Despite interruption from other on-site trades, GSS Flooring was able to install the new surface to the agreed timeframe and the client’s complete satisfaction.
