The resin flooring specialists were delighted to provide a number of flooring materials for use on the site, including one of the company’s most decorative polymer floor coating systems, Flowtallics - in a striking coffee shade - was selected for installation in the monkey enclosure.
Store owner, Jim McIngvale, opted for Flowtallics installed by STAR applicator partner Maintenance Solutions of Tomball, TX after having witnessed the monkeys at his family-owned leisure club, Westside Tennis – where Flowtallics was also installed - dancing at their reflection in the high gloss finish and playfully sliding across the super smooth, super flat surface.
The material is also highly robust, offering excellent chemical, wear and stain resistance properties combined with UV stability, in order to prevent the surface from yellowing with exposure to sunlight – a must with the bright Texas sunshine pouring through the glass roof.
A second system, Flowfresh SR with a Flowfresh FCUV topcoat, was installed in the kitchen of the store’s full-service, on-site restaurant, Brick & Mortar Kitchen, run by McIngvale’s daughter, Laura. Flowfresh SR is a slurry broadcast, anti-slip and wear resistant antimicrobial treated cementitious urethane flooring system, designed for use in food processing, handling and preparation areas.
