Client: Walton and Frinton Yacht Club
Location: Walton Creek, Essex
Walton and Frinton Yacht Club has seen a number of refurbishment projects over the years with the latest one being an extensive re-development of the clubhouse.
Due to the exposed coastal position of the building, the project needed to embrace a wide range of new technology and innovative ideas to deliver a warm and welcoming facility with low running costs.
One of the key challenges faced by the committee was a decision on the type of floor finishes that would be suitable for the location, environment and duty cycle of the building. It was crucial that the new floors would be fit for purpose, offer good levels of slip resistance, and look great to match the new modern interior.
To ensure the best floor finish was chosen, local resin flooring specialist Flo-Dek (UK) Ltd was called in to share their longstanding expertise and help to choose, and later install, the most suitable flooring solution.
Flo-Dek’s recommendation was a range of Degafloor fast curing resin systems, including Degafloor FB for the kitchen area and wet room, Degafloor Decorative Flake for the toilets and changing rooms, and Degafloor Degaset to create the falls in the wet room.
A total area of approximately 90 sq m was covered with fast curing Degafloor resin systems, provided at a heavily discounted cost to support this community project, and the end result was a real success.
Project Manager Martin Jenkins said “we are exceptionally pleased with the relationship and workmanship of Flo-Dek. The project has been a complete success and the Degafloor products chosen have been an integral part of that success.”< Back to Case Studies
