Fix-A-Floor is said to be one of the fastest-growing sales opportunities in the tiling sector currently.
Available in the UK since 2014, mainly through DIY retailers and online, Fix-A-Floor is this year making a push for increased trade business, with a presence at The Tiling Show, membership of TTA and the promise of future products.
The product comprises an extra strength repair bonding adhesive suitable for tile, marble, porcelain, stone or wooden floors, including those with underfloor heating.
It’s designed for DIY and trade users who need to repair areas of floor where tiles have become loose or developed hollow voids underneath.
“This product can be a life saver for both DIYers and professional tile fixers or builders,” says Adrian Cox, managing director of Fix-A-Floor. “It’s designed for the situation where the user has to mend a floor which has started to fail through heavy use or where the previous installation has maybe not been that effective.”
The key to the product’s effectiveness, the company says, is its combination of a powerful and flexible adhesive with elastomeric properties, with low viscosity prior to curing. This means it will flow under a tile, completely filling the void underneath and ensuring an end to wobbly and loose tiles – which are prone to breaking if not fixed down quickly.
Installation is made even easier by the design of the cartridge which can be used in a standard cartridge gun and features an 1/8″ patented tip, specially designed and engineered for the sole purpose of filling drilled holes in tile, marble, stone & wood floors. It also includes a special click-on cap designed to keep any unused adhesive fresh in-between uses.
For tile retailers and distributors, the company says, Fix-A-Floor represents an opportunity for add-on sales, as well as the possibility of leading to increased sales of tile ranges.
