AVON Cosmetics
AVON is the world’s leading direct seller of beauty and related products and one of the UK’s leading sellers of mass beauty products. Avon markets to women in over 100 countries through 5.5 million independent sales Representatives - often fondly known as the Avon Ladies. Avon Cosmetics head offices are in Northampton and has a national distribution centre in Corby.

In their Corby national distribution centre we were advised that the production flooring required resurfacing. The existing floor had damaged areas of screed due to movement and the initial steels were installed too close to the surface. Therefore the existing floor required extensive repairs prior to the resurfacing works. The floor area which required attention measured approximately 14,000 square metres.

Richco recommended that all damaged areas of floor were removed and repaired.

Once the floor had been fully prepared and all repairs completed, Richco application team applied Felxible Liquid Vinyl. This material was recommended due to the flexible nature of this product and the issue of the movement on this particular floor.

Richco Flexible Liquid Vinyl is a heavy duty self levelling resin system which gives excellent resistance to abrasion and chemical attack whilst providing a seamless finish. Richco Flexible Liquid Vinyl was applied in two colours throughout the production floor. The main areas were applied in dark grey and all walkway areas were applied in safety yellow to provide a contrasting colour for pedestrians.
Tattershall Castle
The Tattershall Castle is a boat which is permanently moored opposite The London Eye on the Victoria Embankment offering spectacular views of London across the Thames.

The Tattershall Castle is one of London’s most original venues with bars and a night club on board. The Tattershall Castle also serves traditional English food and can cater for private functions of up to 220 people during the week. It has also been a premier comedy night in London for over 7 years.

On the decking floor surface we were advised that the existing red floor coating had failed and had become totally delaminated from the original screed causing cracking and general failure throughout the decking area.

The existing failing coating was removed and any damages to the underlying screed were repaired. Once all repairs had been completed and the surface was fully prepared we applied Richco Grip Safe Anti Slip Coating in a colour of the client’s choice.
Barnards Farm
Barnards Farm is located in West Horndon, Essex. It is open to the public as part of the National Gardens Scheme and all proceeds from open days are donated to charity. Barnard Farm has 17 hectares of land and has a variety of gardens; it also has a small motor vehicle museum and 1920’s cycle shop which is open to visitors on Sundays.

In their aeroplane hanger Richco were advised that the flooring area required re-surfacing. The area of floor measured 129 square metres, however the existing floor was made up from three concrete slabs which required moderate levelling.

Once the floor had been fully prepared and primed, Richco application team then applied Richco SL E-Coat. Richco SL E-Coat is a self-levelling flooring system which provides a smooth, easy to clean surface with excellent resistance to chemicals. Richco SL E-Coat is suitable to even out rough floor finishes and incorporates abrasion resistant fillers, which produce a floor finish with the highest order of resistance. The introduction of the PVA flake also provides a decorative anti-slip finish.
