Dry Installs Case Study

  • Project - Manhattan Loft Project, London
  • Wood Flooring Supplier - The Solid Wood Flooring Company

Pre installation and site visit examples available when you use our adhesive and flooring.

With large residential tower developments, there will normally be slabs for each floor. These will take at least two years to dry out completely as they are open to the elements until the building is sealed off and made dry. This means that unless the slabs have a DPM applied there will always be a chance of moisture affecting whatever is laid on the floor be it a cradle system or dry install underfloor heating system.

In Manhattan Loft gardens, they have a dry install system and therefore are going to use the recommended system here from Sika and then fit the floor fully bonded with our SW890 adhesive.
