Fast drying screed causes minimum disruption to retailer
Tesco management understandably wanted to avoid disruption to the shop opening hours, so any repairs had to be permanent and quick so that the store was closed to trading for as short time as possible.
A special Ronafix modified screed was supplied ready mixed by RMC Mortars Limited of Lichfield, Staffordshire. The contractors, Telling (Midlands) Limited, then used a Putzmeister pump to pump the mortar through a 75 metre line to raise the mix from basement level to each of the two trading floors, where it was laid to a thickness of 65mm.
Within twenty-four hours the screed was able to accept foot traffic, and tiles were laid four to five days later, keeping to the strict time schedule, so the store could soon be re-opened and back in business.
