AG Barr’s new canning facility at Milton Keynes used over 770,000 Argelith tiles for the floor of their new bottling plant at Milton Keynes. Kemtile of Warrington were the chosen contractor and the tiles were laid using the Kagetec vibration method of installation. The system was engineered in Germany by Van Koetsveld & Grimberg GmbH, and is regarded as the best tile installation system around for hygienic flooring in food and beverage manufacturing areas. The system vibrates the tiles into an epoxy bed, eliminating any air pockets and providing an even surface and thus ensuring complete integrity of the finished floor. The system has stood the test of time and is quoted as the installation system of choice by most food & drink manufacturers. The combination of vibration tiling and a plastic mesh reinforced epoxy membrane/adhesive between the tiles and the bedding medium makes GFK one of the toughest floors available. Every tile is vibrated into position encasing it in an epoxy resin; if the grout is damaged the tile bedding is protected. It is ideal for very wet areas due to its totally impervious substrate.
