Barratt / David Wilson Homes

Norcros Adhesives are proud to be the sole national specifier and supplier of adhesive and grouts for all Barratt and David Wilson Home builds. Working closely with both of the companies, as well as on-site with the tiling contractors, tiling systems were developed to suit all installations and substrates whilst keeping to the tight schedules common to all new builds.

The products used included;

Moss Bros

Moss, Canary Wharf

Men’s formalwear retailer Moss Bros Group knows how much impact looking good can make – so for their flagship Moss store at Canary Wharf there was no one better ‘suited’ to the job than Johnson Tiles and Norcros Adhesives.

The Moss store offers a new concept in suit shopping. As it was the first branch of the retail chain to combine all its services under one roof, it was also the launchpad for Moss Bespoke, a new high-tech tailoring service offering clients made-to-measure work and formal wear. Tailors input customer measurements and requirements into iPads, which are then sent direct to the manufacturers for delivery in six to eight weeks.

With such a high concept vision, it was vital that this was reflected in the look and feel of the store. To give the high-end yet durable effect needed, Johnson Tiles used two colours of its Arcade porcelain floor tiles in 600 x 300 size. As a unique feature, a proportion of the tiles were water-jet cut to 600 x150, creating a tile feature design in the middle of the shopfloor.

The project, which totalled over 200m2 of tiling, giving Moss the reassurance of a lifetime guarantee on the whole installation.

The products used included;

Marks & Spencer

Large format, unglazed porcelain tiles were used across all three floors of The Marks and Spencer Anchor store in Westfield shopping centre; London. As one of the largest shopping centres in Europe with over 9,500m2 of retail space, a solid hard – wearing solution was required to withstand heavy foot traffic.

Using large format tiles can make it difficult to achieve solid bed fixing, which is essential in such a heavily trafficked area. To ensure that there would be no risk of impact damage, Norcros Thick Bed Stone and Porcelain Adhesive was specified.

Other products used on this project were Norcros Prime Bond and Norcros Flexible Floor and Wall Tile Grout.

Stafford Leisure Centre

Norcros products were used in the complete refurbishment of Stafford Leisure Centre. The new state – of – the – art leisure facilities; includes 25 metre swimming pool, teaching pool with moveable floor, pool hall and surroundings as well as full changing, gym and beauty facilities.

The products used included;

All of the products used were highly polymer modified, ensuring that they would be capable of lasting in such a demanding environment.

Houses Of Parliament

Refurbishment of Press Office Cafeteria

The challenge was to provide fixing systems that would enable tiles to be fixed to three different substrates including; concrete, existing floor tiles and woodblock flooring.

Norcros Rapid Porcelain Grey Adhesive was used on the solid concrete floors and also on top of the existing floor tiles once a slurry-bonding coat, consisting of 2 parts adhesive mixed with 1 part Norcros Prime Bond, had been brush applied onto the tiles to provide a key.

By using Norcros 2-Part Tile Direct to Wood Rapid elastomeric adhesive, it was possible to fix tiles securely over the woodblock flooring once the floor had been prepared

In all areas, Norcros Super Epoxy Grout was used to provide a hygienic, easy clean surface.
