Wallacespace provides serviced offsite meeting spaces for training, events, seminars, conferences and meetings. At its most recently opened facility, a converted Victorian warehouse in Spitalfields, east London, InstaLay was used to install new engineered oak flooring.

The InstaLay 25 was simply loose laid over the raised access sub- floor. The tongue and groove wood flooring was installed without using glue between the joints. As the boards were positioned in place, the release film was pulled from under the planks exposing the adhesive membrane. The planks were secured by applying pressure to fully activate the adhesive.

As InstaLay needs no messy wet adhesives the installation was very quick and clean and the new floor could be walked on and used immediately.

Manufactured from recycled rubber crumb granules, InstaLay is environmentally friendly and provides both excellent underfoot comfort and outstanding acoustic performance, both of which were important in this commercial setting. This project recycled 196 car tyres or 29 truck tyres.

InstaLay also provided various additional benefits:-

  • It is loose laid with minimal sub-floor preparation.
  • It created an enhanced floating floor by fully bonding the entire underside of the flooring together, reducing reflected walking sound.
  • It is hygienic, non-absorbent, resistant to decay and has low VOC’s for a healthier environment.
  • It provides long-term stability, performance and durability and will not collapse over time.

The Weitzer Parkett Oak flooring combined with InstaLay provided a high quality look and feel to the new flooring and its speed and ease of installation meant the office spaces could rapidly be in full use.
