SGB Contractors have used UltraTile adhesives and grouts to install 250sqm of tiles at Slim Chickens’ recently opened restaurant.
The fast-casual food chain, Slim Chickens, has opened its latest restaurant at Bristol Cribbs Causeway shopping centre – described as the heart of Bristol shopping.
Time was reportedly of the essence for SGB Contractors, which had just two weeks to install 250sqm of tiles at the restaurant. It was imperative the materials used adhered to the restaurant’s branding, ensuring it was in keeping with the iconic interior design Slim Chickens customers love.
UltraTile has a long and successful history of providing trusted and proven tile adhesives and grouts to the hospitality sector, the company says. For this location, the contractors used ProFlex SP and ProSS Flex adhesives and ProGrout Flexible grout to install and joint the chosen tiles.
ProFlex SP rapid set flexible tile adhesive is classified as S1 in accordance with EN 12004 and reportedly boasts a high level of deformation for greater tolerance to movement. The S1 properties of ProFlex SP make it a suitable choice for timber floors, swimming pools and underfloor heating systems.
Formulated for enhanced adhesion and flexibility, ProSS Flex is a polymer modified adhesive suitable for use with most common substrates and tiles.
To complete the project, SGB Contractors used ProGrout Flexible in Charcoal to grout the tiles. Designed for areas where movement or vibration is likely, ProGrout Flexible is suitable for joint widths up to 20mm and is said to be washed down easily with minimal effort.
Available in 12 tones, ProGrout Flexible is mould resistant, with a 30-60 minute pot life and will hard set in 12 hours. The product has also been developed using ColourShield Technology – a process which involves the addition of a specialist additive for lasting colour protection.
The company said: “Thanks to the expertise of SGB Contractors and the reliability and durability of UltraTile materials, the project was completed on time and the residents of Bristol are now able to enjoy their chicken wings in a beautifully decorated restaurant.”
