We completed a 1,800m2 project in Bradford for Texfelt Ltd, using Vubacoat Hydracoat Original, with a gloss finish. The architect specified the Vuba epoxy coating for its moisture tolerant properties – capable of over coating relatively new concrete.
The floor was prepared using a HTC800HDX Diamond Grinder; an excellent piece of kit for maintaining a smooth floor finish whilst exposing the minerals of the concrete for good preparation.
Dawson’s Rentals are the UK’s largest truck and trailer rental company, with their materials handling rental business based in Leeds.
Derek from Dawson’s Rentals asked Northern Star Flooring to provide him with a smooth, glossy finish for his forklift showroom. We installed 3mm of Epilevel epoxy screed and he was delighted with the result.
Etta the K9 Fire Investigation Dog can be seen here posing on top of a worn in Northern Star floor. The fire station required a floor which would be extremely robust, anti slip yet easy to clean.
We came up with a relatively unique compromise by using anti slip aggregates within the final finish, but used a high gloss finish product in order to prevent the profile of the anti slip holding dirt.
Wholesale Vape Ltd, or Steamin’ Guns as their brand is called, required a new hygienic attractive floor for their vape manufacturing business.
We applied a seamless, hygienic epoxy resin floor screed to the manufacturing area at 3mm thickness, and a high build epoxy floor coating to the storage and packaging areas. We matched the bamboo colour of the floor to their logo, which went down very well with the client!
Black Sheep Vets required a solution which would look great, but would be able to withstand scratching and the occasional toilet mishap associated with our furry friends!
We first applied a concrete resurfacing screed, Duratop, to fix the levels throughout the building. We then applied the liquid vinyl system – a high build epoxy coating (can also use a epoxy screed) with a light flake scatter and sealed using a UV resistant clear resin.
Rosti Plastics are a global injection moulding manufacturing company, with operations throughout the world. Headquartered in Sweden, Rosti Plastics is a name synonymous with precision and quality.
It was these qualities that brought Rosti to Northern Star, using the very best products from Vuba. We’ve carried out more than 20 projects, mostly including installation of a concrete resurfacing screed followed by application of a two part epoxy floor coating.
Drewton’s Farm Shop had an existing floor paint in their farm shop; which looked tired and worn. They contacted Northern Star Flooring for a solution and we did not disappoint!
The floor was lightly abraded using an industrial floor sander, followed by an application of Ultracoat profile – a two part high build epoxy with a mild anti slip contained within the paint. The floor really does do this fantastic farm shop justice – excellent all round!
Northern Star Flooring were commissioned to carry out a flooring refurbishment by an exclusive luxury car dealership filled with high end, luxury brands such as Mercedes, Audi and Bentley.
Only a high quality, reliable brand of floor coating such as Vuba-Coat Epoxyshield installed by the Northern Star Flooring Installation Team was fit for the task!
A Yorkshire based seafood manufacturer built an extension to fit a new wash down room, to free up space within their filleting area.
We installed a stainless steel drainage channel and floor gully and installed a rapid curing screed to falls to allow the water to flow to the drainage point at a gradual 1:100 fall; which means a drop of 10mm in height per linear metre. Once cured we installed Vuba Ultracrete polyurethane resin food safe screed, polyurethane coving render and expansion joints.
Former Amateur National Champion, IBF International, Ricky Hatton opponent and World Champion Stevie ‘Stunning’ Smith contacted Northern Star Flooring when he wanted to brighten up his gym floor. After an initial consultation we came up with some quite special ideas – a logo made out of golden glitter and specialist training tools marked on to the floor.
Stevie Smith ‘I’ve been at the top of my profession, and although it’s a different world these boys know what they’re doing. It’s a knock out job!’.
Vubascreed Ultracrete was specified by the specifying team at Tesco Plc throughout a number of Tesco Extra superstores in the UK. This Tesco store in Cardiff was the 8th project in under two years completed by Northern Star Flooring.
We prepared the floor using vacuum enclosed diamond grinders; laid a 6mm polyurethane resin floor screed and finished off the job with expansion joints and polyurethane coving render.
Northern Star Flooring painted TCL Packaging’s old manufacturing facility also in Telford in 2009. So when they purchased a new facility, there was only 1 number to dial for an industrial floor, and that was 01482 778897!
We installed 3,000m2 of high build epoxy floor coating, including walkways and line marking. The floor was shot blasted initially to provide a key for the coating, as well as edge preparation using handheld diamond grinders.
The client, Computer Disposals Limited, specialises in WEEE-compliant computer recycling & disposal.
They required a long lasting solution for walkways, a solution which would replace the existing tape which repeatedly peeled up. Northern Star installed Epoxyshield high build epoxy floor coating along with Epoxyline to mark out the perimeter.
Roach Bros, a Hull based mackerel smoker has spent recent years making huge improvements to their production facility. And luckily, we at Northern Star have been a central part of that development.
Northern Star Flooring has worked for the fish producer for 7 years on everything from small resin floor repairs to extensions. In this case we were asked to install a food safe polyurethane screed to their packing area, to renovate the existing area.
The project was completed on time, and within budget parameters.
Located on the edge of the West Pennine moors in Lancashire, Dunscar Brewery started life in 2009 as a small 4.5 brewers’ barrel plant located in the Brewhouse pub in Dunscar Bridge near Egerton.
Northern Star Flooring installed a polymer modified granolithic screed to falls for draining water; stainless steel custom fabricated drainage channels and finally a food safe heavy duty polyurethane resin screed. Another week, another brewery for Northern Star!
We were chosen to carry out the specialist flooring work at Cawingredient’s new manufacturing plant in North Yorkshire. The facility is a blueprint of the most modern high tech process, production and storage operations available today.
Sean Scott, MD ‘For such a large, complex job we are very pleased the project has run so smoothly and the client is happy.
We have been enlisted to carry out a further 12 projects on site since completion of the main work, which is a testament to the standard of installation completed.’
