Mapei provides high performance products for Latymer Upper School

A high performance, comprehensive Mapei surface system has been installed at Latymer Upper School in Hammersmith, London. Jerram Faulkus and Tiletec Group were appointed as main contractor to deliver wall and floor tiling in the new two-story building.

Throughout the extensive project, Mapei systems were specified from the substrate to the finishing materials, in order to provide a warrantable system build-up. The total application included 2,500 m2 of Mapei products from screed binders, render substrates and a range of floor and wall adhesives.

The new two-storey building consists of a six lane competition swimming pool and wet changing facilities on the ground floor. The second floor comprises of a fitness suite with the project including a re-fit of existing sports hall and dry changing areas. Mapei’s high performance flexible rapid-set adhesive Granirapid was specified for the floor tiling, which is best suited for areas with high foot traffic due to its high compressive strength. Mapelastic, a two-component, flexible, cementitious mortar for waterproofing swimming pools was applied throughout.

Approximately 425m2 of Mapei’s Planitop Fast 330 was specified in the pool tank floor and walls with Keraflex to bond the tiles to the walls to the wet/dry changing area. Mapei’s Ultraplan Renovation Screed was applied to level an area of 70m2 in the spectators seating area.

The grounds of Latymer Upper School extended from stretches from the gothic gates on King Street in Hammersmith, to Latymer’s Boat House on the banks of the River Thames. The project is now complete.
