Cornerstone was brought in during the building of the University’s viticulture center to ensure the best possible flooring system would be selected for installation of both the manufacturing and observation areas.
The challenge facing the installation team was the client’s desire to have a flooring system that fit both the functional and aesthetic needs of the winery.
Cornerstone Solution and Process:
The Cornerstone installation team prepared the substrate through mechanical preparation utilizing HEPA filtration. All excess dust, curing agents, and contaminants were removed so installation could proceed. The substrate was leveled to ensure an even distribution of the flooring system.
After the substrate was leveled, a hybrid polyurethane MVT primer was spread before the mortar mix was applied with a screed box and troweled to a 1/4″ thickness. The system’s grout was added and immediately back rolled before paint flakes were added to the still wet epoxy. After removal and sanding of excess flakes, yet another layer of mortar was spread and a final top coat was added to help guard against skid and abrasion incidents and add a level of seamless durability to the finished VinoFloor® flooring system.
The finished Cornerstone VinoFloor® not only filled the clients need for quick and clean installation that would meet all of their requirements (both regulatory and aesthetically), but provided a finished product that guards against deterioration from both natural and chemical agents. The flooring system is easy to clean and maintain and included UV stability and light reflection to save energy and maintenance expenses.
