May 2012 supplement

In this special FC&A supplement we are addressing the important areas of floors, walls and ceilings, sectors, which despite the economic challenges, are continuing to deliver outstanding products and installations. In the flooring industry, product design and innovation continue to thrive, and we take a look at Forbo, Nicholls & Clarke and Karndean Designflooring, companies which consistently deliver wide ranges of stylish designs, offering high quality solutions to a multitude of flooring projects.

Once installed, the flooring might look fantastic, but if the subfloor hasn’t been properly prepared or the right adhesive used, there may be trouble ahead. We discover how smoothing underlayments and adhesives from F. Ball and Co. and Ultra Floor primers and compounds, can make all the difference to a successful project.

Specifying fire resisting suspended ceilings can be a minefield as far as Building Regulations are concerned. We examine the approach taken by Knauf AMF to help simplify the situation. As always, if you would like to comment on any of the articles featured, or tell me about your own projects, then please do get in touch.
