World-class Weber floors for prestige car dealership
A stand out feature of the luxurious Mercedes-Benz AMG lounge in Affalterbach, Germany, was the striking, coloured cementitious screed floor. Weber Saint-Gobain South Africa was commissioned to replicate this floor for three of the local AMG Performance Centre showrooms in Cape Town, Johannesburg & Pretoria.
The flooring requirement from ARCA Architect Faan Nel was to have a level, charcoal-colored, sheen finish screed that was robust enough to withstand the typical traffic in a car showroom varying in size from 150 – 350m². The turnaround time for completion was also important to meet the tight deadlines of this project.
Therefore, Weber Saint-Gobain used the weber. floor 4650 G80 Design Colour. The benefits of this product includes self-levelling convenience, excellent spreading and smoothing characteristics, as well as having a rapid set that allows foot traffic after just 3-5 hours and light vehicle traffic after 24 hours. “Weber prides itself on quality flooring solutions,” says Theunis Marais, Product Manager at Weber Saint-Gobain. “But, no matter how good the product, it has to be applied by skilled applicators to achieve the desired high quality result. We invest a great deal in skills development and training of applicators nationally.”
This not only provides extended platforms for our products to be used in various projects, but provides an avenue to “give back” to the industry in terms of sharing technological advancements and installation techniques shared from our international Weber teams. For the AMG project we partnered with CT Industries, a local flooring contractor that has been through the necessary Weber training and with whom we have worked successfully with on various contracts – an excellent finish was achieved due to the professional workmanship done on this project.
