Wakefield, West Yorkshire

ACC Flooring was asked to install a flooring solution in the showroom of a bus and coach distributor in Wakefield. The client is the sole UK and Ireland distributor of Yutong buses.

The company was founded in 1919 and now employs 55 technicians and 35 parts staff in support of the vehicles they sell. Their portfolio includes in addition to Yutong, DAF, LDV and MAN heavy goods vehicles, Rasco snow ploughs and snow gritters, Kubota engine parts and engines, Kohler engine parts, Lombardini engine parts and Deutz engine parts.

Yutong is the largest bus and coach manufacturer in China with 33% of the Chinese market and 10% of the global market. They are also the largest global manufacturer of hybrid and electric buses and coaches.

Overview

After listening to the clients’ requirements, ACC Flooring recommended a high build epoxy coating system with a high gloss finish which would complement the vehicles on show.

The substrate to the 260 square metre area was prepared with enclosed vacuum diamond grinding equipment removing any laitance. Structural pads were also mechanically prepared & primer applied prior to the application of a polyurethane floor patching kit which is designed with the highest order of durability, impact and abrasion resistance. The expansion joints were cleaned out and re-instated using a polyurethane modified epoxy jointing compound which provides good chemical resistance and durability together with a degree of flexibility. 2 coats of FeRFA Type 3 high build epoxy coating was installed in light grey offering good resistance to general chemical spills, good abrasion resistance whilst providing a robust, durable finish.

The showroom was completed within a tight timescale and the client was delighted with the quality of the workmanship and the finished appearance.

The showroom was opened shortly after the installation by Mr. Jin Xu, the minister for economic and commercial development at the Chinese embassy in London.
