Knauf GIFAfloor enabled Domus to install their display cabinets, weighing up to 2.5 tonnes each and containing over 10,000 sample pieces of porcelain, ceramic, glass, mosaic, and stone, onto porcelain tiles and eliminated the risk of cracking.
The GIFAfloor system is a partial-access raised floor system providing the ability to run services under the floor with ease. It is manufactured from natural gypsum based calcium sulphate and is ideal for raised floor areas requiring continuous finishes such as sheet vinyl or hard finishes such as stone and large format porcelain. GIFAfloor is also an excellent screed replacement, removing a wet trade from site and saving time in the build programme. Pete Dawson, Domus' Technical Director, specified using GIFAfloor for the project, stating:
"This floor system provides an utterly solid, very flat, unmoveable base with a high quality feel underfoot. It was so much quicker and convenient to install. We were able to get in and install our furniture and displays so much earlier."
