Offering customers a bright, attractive and most importantly a clean environment, Alfa Self Storage specified a Ryebrook resin floor for the new Walton-on-Thames unit which was opened in June 2007. Re-enforcing the Alfa brand image, Ryebrook colour co-ordinated the resin floor with the green of their logo. Off-set against bright yellow doors, the floor helps create a truly professional facility and build customer confidence. All corridors and individual storage areas have been laid with Ryetech hi-build epoxy resin, delivering a seamless finish that is easy to maintain and, with good impact, loading and scratch resistance, will remain looking highly presentable long into the future.
When viewing suitable units to develop as the next Alfa Self Storage facility, Managing Director, Carl Hanauer was impressed by one that already featured a resin floor installed by Ryebrook. Although an alternative location was finally selected, Carl specified Ryebrook to lay a single coat of their Ryetech resin finish in each storage area with two coats being laid to the corridors that obviously endure greater levels of foot and moving aid cart traffic.
“When our first personal storage business opened in 1984, it was a relatively new concept and customer expectation was not so high,” explains Carl. “With the new Alfa Self Storage in Walton-on-Thames, we are offering not only a secure environment but one that is practically dust-free too.”
The first coat of Ryetech was applied to the entire 1,500m² area before any dividing walls were installed. Ryebrook prepared the existing concrete base using a diamond grinder to remove adhesive and additional debris. Localised damage was then made-good using an epoxy resin mortar before applying the hi-build resin coating. Once the internal structure was completed, Ryebrook returned to apply a second coat to the corridors.
