International food producer, RCL Foods, recently injected vibrancy and energy into its new Durban office by incorporating Flowcrete‘s brightly coloured resin floor finishes.
Located in Westville’s Westway Office Park, the new building was designed to provide a creative environment using materials that would also meet the specific demands of each area.
A focal point of the new office, the Test Kitchen needed to be both a visually stunning showroom as well as a practical area for cooking. To achieve this, 311 m2 of Flowfresh SR Ultra in a bespoke blue that matched RCL Foods’ corporate colour was installed to link the space to the visual identity of the business.
In addition, 272 m2 of Peran SL Fruity flooring was supplied for the 18 male, female and disabled toilets. Each toilet facility was different, using a variety of different colours such as Tomato, Kiwi, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Spearmint and Plum.
Peran SL Fruity is quick and easy to clean, helping to ensure that the floor maintains a fresh and unblemished appearance. Flowfresh was ideal due to its very durable polyurethane system and it’s great hygiene levels with antibacterial additive Polygiene® within the floor.
Finally, in the lobby, 378 m2 of the epoxy resin floor coating Peran STB in a sleek, dappled grey colour was applied to provide a pleasant transition from the car park to the office.
This combination of floor finishes means that RCL Foods can rest assured that its new office offers bright, vivid flooring that can withstand such a busy and unique office space.
