Gólfefnaval Chooses F. Ball

Icelandic flooring distributor Gólfefnaval Chooses F. Ball

Icelandic flooring distributor Gólfefnaval has opted for F. Ball and Co. Ltd.’s Stopgap 300 HD heavy-duty levelling compound to create a durable flooring installation at its new Reykjavik showroom.

The 280m2 premises and warehouse facility opened earlier this year and will enable Gólfefnaval to meet growing demand from the Icelandic flooring market.

Stopgap 300 HD was selected to create a perfectly smooth base for the floorcoverings because of its heavy-duty properties, enabling floors in the retail areas and distribution facilities to withstand the high footfall and heavy loads that they will be subject to. Its superior strength will ensure a long-lasting professional flooring finish even when subjected to heavy daily usage.

The fast-drying, self-levelling compound is suitable for preparing sound absorbent and non-absorbent subfloors prior to the installation of new floorcoverings in light to heavy-duty areas. The excellent self-levelling properties of Stopgap 300 HD make it ideal for where an extremely smooth base for resilient floorcoverings, including Luxury Vinyl Tiles, is required.

This inherent strength of the product also makes it better able to withstand the stresses and strains exerted by the natural movements of wood floorcoverings as a result of climatic conditions, such as changes in temperature and humidity, over the lifetime of an installation.

Commenting on the project, Gólfefnaval owner Gunnar Þór Jóhannesson said: “We’ve been distributing F. Ball products in Iceland for over 20 years. When we got the keys to our showroom, we contacted F. Ball’s technical service department for advice on how to prepare the subfloor. They recommended the use of Stopgap 300 HD across all areas. We now understand why our clients love to use this levelling compound, as we too now have a first-class, super smooth floor thanks to F. Ball and Stopgap 300 HD.”
