A Granwood floor is considered to be very durable. It is also resistant to water, fire, wet and dry rot, extreme temperature fluctuations and humidity, most chemicals and is guaranteed not to warp, twist, buckle or splinter. Granwood flooring is constructed of cement, by-product of softwood sawdust, fillers, binders and pigments. It is formed under high pressure, impregnated with linseed oil and heat cured for stability.
Flooring Works: Granwood Deep Clean, Re-Lacquer and Court Line Mark
This Granwood floor was dirty and worn with all court lines fading and pealing away. As part of our deep cleaning service we thoroughly cleaned the floor using our Cleanfix RA430 scrubber drier with an alkaline detergent. We then abraded the floor using our Numatic buffing machine and a mesh screen disc to ensure the floor was smooth and it had a key. As Granwood floors are porous we vacuumed and tack mopped the floor to ensure near to no dust was left on the surface. All sports courts were taped off using our professional line marking machine. As this hall has multiple lines crossing eachother special care was taken not to smudge or mix the lines. Once the Granpaint lines were applied we removed the masking tape. As this sports hall is also used for roller skating we carried out many repairs to the Granwood blocks before we finally applied two coats of Granguard solvent based polyurethane lacquer with a T-bar and attached yellow padco sleeve. The Granwood floor now looks clean and shiny, the lines are re-instated and crisp and the floor is well protected against the constant wear that comes with the everyday use of the leisure centre.
