Magic Planet is a destination where everyone is obsessed with fun, so Flowcrete in the Middle East was delighted to have been chosen to provide the flooring materials for the brand's children entertainment centres at a number of malls in and around the Gulf.
Owned by the Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) Group - one of the leading retail operators in the GGC - the Magic Planet play centres feature rides, games and other attractions and have become a popular place to spend days out for the entire family.
Embarking on a significant refurbishment project, both the MAF Group and the project architect were looking for a hard wearing flooring surface that would be capable of withstanding high levels of foot traffic on a daily basis.
However, after having built up a reputation across the Emirates as a destination of fun, it was also critical that the flooring materials had a decorative edge, so as to adequately represent the brand and impress visitors to the Magic Planet sites underfoot.
Flowcrete's acrylic resin system, Flowfast Quartz, was selected as the product of choice in order to be able to meet all of the client's requirements.
The ability to formulate the system in bespoke colours to reflect the brand's corporate image was a further winning factor for the product.
Flowfast Quartz is a seamless flooring system that sees UV stable, coloured quartz beads locked inside an acrylic resin matrix. The system's anti-slip profile can be adjusted to suit the service conditions of the environment where is to be installed in order to ensure optimum safety underfoot.
An additional benefit of the system is its ability to cure on the fast track and its capability to receive traffic just two afters after installation - making it an ideal surface product for refurbishment or shop-fit out projects.
The seamless system is able to form a monolithic bond to the substrate, eliminating some of the common problems encountered with other floor coverings, such as vinyl or tiles, including water and dirt ingress - both of which can cause de-bonding.
Available in a wide range of decorative colours and aggregate mixes, and with the scope to utilise Flowcrete's bespoke colour service, Flowfast Quartz is able to perform as a decorative yet highly functional floor finish at all Magic Planet sites.
The first of the refurbishment projects, which has seen over 1,100 sq metres of Flowfast Quartz installed at the Magic Planet site within Ajman City Centre, has already taken place with others expected to roll out over the coming months.
