Specialist accessories from Schluter have provided solutions to the problems posed to tiling contractor PA Flooring during the refurbishment of the French Connection store in Sheffield.
Laying porcelain tiles on a suspended plywood floor connecting with a timber surface on both sides was the severe challenge facing PA Flooring.The company carried out all the flooring work, tiling and timber, during a full shopfitting refurbishment.
The Schluter-Ditra uncoupling membrane was specified to take up the considerable amount of movement anticipated in the floor. Designed specifically to provide solutions for problem floors, Ditra is a polythylene mat with a square, dovetailed grid structure which prevents stresses from the substrate being transferred to the tiles. In addition, Schluter's Dilex-AKWS movement joint was used where the tiles met the oak and maple flooring.
