F. Ball Demonstrates Excellence at The Flooring Show

With the return of The Flooring Show at Harrogate Convention Centre from 19-21 September 2021, F. Ball and Co. Ltd. will realise its most ambitious exhibition stand to date, debuting live demonstrations of products to help flooring contractors work to ever higher standards, as well as showcasing its revamped training provisions facilitated by the new F. Ball Centre of Excellence.

The F. Ball demonstration area, adjacent to the company’s main stand in Hall B, will be used to unveil its latest product innovations, including its recently launched flexible, rapid-drying floor finishing compound, Stopgap Micro Rapid.

Stopgap Micro Rapid is a new ultra-smooth, flexible floor finishing compound for ensuring a flawlessly smooth subfloor finish. The product can be applied to a seamless feathered edge to repair minor surface defects in a wide range of other absorbent surfaces, including sand/cement and calcium sulphate screeds and to fill indentations formed by screws used to secure plywood sheets, as well as the gaps at joints between the panels. It is walk-on hard and ready to receive new floorcoverings from just 20 minutes after application, and priming is not required prior to use, making it perfect for use when working to tight time constraints and deadlines.

Product demonstrations will be provided by experts from F. Ball’s technical service department, who also deliver training at the new F. Ball Centre of Excellence, which has been created by redesigning and reconfiguring the company’s training and demonstration facility at its Staffordshire headquarters. This has coincided with the introduction of restyled course content to offer a more dynamic, hands-on learning experiences.

Training programmes, which are free to attend, run year-round and include courses tailored to apprentices as well as experienced professionals, helping them to keep up to date with the latest advancements in product technology and cutting-edge flooring installation methods in order to achieve the highest standards of subfloor preparation and floorcovering installation.

Representatives from the F. Ball Marketing, Sales and Liaison teams will be on-hand throughout the exhibition to answer any questions that visitors may have about F. Ball’s products, free training courses, or membership of the Ball Rewards loyalty scheme.

Darren Kenyon F. Ball Sales Director, said: “We are really looking forward to exhibiting at The Flooring Show after a two-year break because of the pandemic. We’re particularly excited about the opportunity that the demonstration area will provide to let people see the benefits of our latest product innovations for themselves, and it will be great to meeting flooring industry professionals face to face for the first time in a while too.”
