Huge Job For Melbourne Airport

Posted by on Oct 30, 2018 in Blog | Comments Off on Huge Job For Melbourne Airport

When Melbourne Airport had problems with the floors in one of their commercial kitchens they turned to GroutPro. With the entire floor of a large commercial kitchen to be restored in one of the busiest buildings in the country, a very tight time-frame was given to complete the work so that the restaurant could get back to business. GroutPro Werribee joined forces with two other GroutPro specialists to attack the problem at full speed over a marathon 30 hours without a break. Old damaged grout was removed from the entire floor and new epoxy grout was installed to ensure compliance with hygiene regulations were met, and to make the surfaces much easier to clean. The entire floor area was restored to look as good as new again, but having installed epoxy grout, it was also stain free and impervious to penetration and build up of bacteria. Melbourne Airport understands the importance of re-grouting with epoxy grout in their commercial kitchens and bathrooms as it reduces the need for time and resources spent on cleaning their tiles and grout and it is the most durable of all grout types available reducing the need for harsh and intensive cleaning processes and chemicals. In places such as a kitchens or bathrooms, stains are hard to avoid without epoxy grout. Normal sand-based grout is very porous, it soaks up all types of substances which create stains that are hard or even impossible to remove without re-grouting. With no rest for 30 hours, our GroutPro specialists delivered a permanent, durable, non-porous, stain-proof solution, on time and on budget. Having kept within the time constraints and delivering a top quality job, they exceeded expectations of the Melbourne Airport… another happy GroutPro...

Epoxy Grouting in Commercial Buildings

Posted by on Jun 22, 2018 in Blog | Comments Off on Epoxy Grouting in Commercial Buildings

A scheduling crunch on the construction of a new Porsche automotive showroom and servicing facility in Melbourne was one case where GroutPro’s considerable resources came to the rescue on an epoxy grout job. Here’s what happened: A tiling company originally hired to lay tiles and install grout were struggling with their work load and lack of expertise with installing epoxy grout. Typically, tilers have a loathing for installing epoxy grout as it is more difficult and time consuming than cement-based grout, especially on this type of small textured tiles so to ensure the construction schedule was not disrupted, GroutPro was called in to install the 1180sqm of epoxy grout. Epoxy grout is a very hard and durable material that offers vastly superior stain and wear resistance, and provides excellent waterproofing properties compared to conventional cement-based grout which is notorious for staining. On inspection of the workshop and showroom floors it was soon clear that a team of GroutPro specialists would be needed to meet the project timeline. Three additional GroutPro experts arrived on the job and sixteen days of intensive grouting and finishing saw the completion of an extraordinary job. These four grout experts were installing 70-90 sqm of epoxy grout per day and it was calculated that 160 epoxy kits were used by the end of the sixteen days. Epoxy is GroutPro’s favourite product to offer as we know how durable and beneficial it is in all buildings, especially in high traffic areas such as commercial and residential bathrooms and kitchens. We don’t just service large commercial properties, but residential homes as well.
