UltraScape BS 7533 steps up to the paving challenge

As part of a regeneration programme, the Samoa Government released funds to rejuvenate the capital Apria’s main high street.

Peizheng Wang was engaged as the contractor for the project and New Zealand UltraScape distributor, Horizon International Limited, advised and provided the UltraScape mortar system for the upgrade of the 560m² of 80mm stone paving required for the project.

Climate and weather were a critical considerations for the project, Apia features a hot and humid climate, however, the climate is not equatorial because of the trade winds and there are also a few cyclones, so any mortar solution would need to be robust enough to survive these changes in conditions.

The costal location of Apia was also a consideration, the paving and mortar needed to be capable of withstanding saltwater and precipitation.

The selected UltraScape BS 7533 compliant Mortar Paving System comprised of pro-bed bedding mortar, pro-prime slurry primer and flowpoint smooth in natural grey grout.

Pre-blended for ease of use, pro-bed can be laid from 10mm – 75mm, is shrinkage compensated and can be opened to foot traffic in just 12 hours, which allowed Peizheng Wang to complete the project in good time.

Formulated to provide an exceptional bond between the paving element and pro-bed, pro-prime slurry primer eliminated potential costly failures caused by general wear and tear and heavy load bearing.

Ideal for large scale projects, flowpoint smooth grout was used in natural grey to sympathetically tie in with the selected paving.
