A tough surface for a busy rooftop bar

Bona Certified Contractors, Timbered Flooring, used Bona products for the installation and finishing of a 20 mm engineered, dark fumed oak parquet floor at London's new urban hotel, Assembly London.

Bona D501 primer was applied to the WBP plywood subfloor, and then the parquet blocks were stuck down using Bona R848 silane adhesive. The pre-wirebrushed blocks were then finished with Bona Craft Oil 2K (Frost) and buffed back again to achieve a white limed effect in the grain - which also took away some of the darkness of the fumed oak. Two coats of Bona Traffic HD (silk matt) lacquer - Bona's most durable polyurethane finish - was then applied to provide the hard wearing surface required in the busy bar area. The fast curing time of both Bona Craft Oil 2K and Bona Traffic HD enabled the Timbered team to work within a tight timetable.

Timbered Flooring's Laurence Warburton said, "We also provided a maintenance specification to the client which included regular cleaning with Bona Cleaner and an annual rebuffing and resealing with Traffic HD.  Following a maintenance regime like this means the floor will always look good and the expense and downtime caused by sanding it back to bare wood will be avoided."

Bona Craft Oil 2K is available in a range of 11 standard colors as well as custom shades which can be mixed on request. Already a hard wearing finishing treatment when used on its own, the oil can also be overcoated with any version of Bona Traffic to provide ultimate durability - a useful option for busy public areas like Assembly London's rooftop bar space.

Opened in May 2018, Assembly London is located in the centre of the city's thriving West-End. Fun, sophisticated and playful, the hotel gives everything that matters for a great night's sleep! Explore @ http://www.assemblyhotels.com/
