These floor planers were invaluable - without them the only other option would have been to break up all the concrete from the higher floor and then re-lay it at a lower level, this would have meant closing the shop floor and doubling the duration of the project
Farnborough, Hampshire (PRWEB) April 30, 2009
Hampshire-based concrete cutting and planing specialists Castle & Pryor have taken delivery of two new Wirtgen advanced mobile floor planers a W35DC and a W50DC with a £500,000 investment.
The new advanced mobile floor planers have already been used in a project for a major supermarket group in Hampshire.
The £500,000 procurement represents a significant investment by Castle & Pryor in their concrete planning facilities. Due to their height adjustable milling drums, each new floor planer is capable of reducing concrete floor levels 1mm at a time. Available for projects across the UK, the floor planers provide operating widths of between 350mm and 500mm.
Both floor planers were recently deployed at a supermarket refit in Lordshill, Hampshire. Within the building there were two floor levels that differed in height by 65mm. The Wirtgen floor planer machines were able to accurately remove the excessive height from the higher floor thus creating a consistent floor level across the supermarket.
"These floor planers were invaluable - without them the only other option would have been to break up all the concrete from the higher floor and then re-lay it at a lower level, this would have meant closing the shop floor and doubling the duration of the project", remarks Company Director, Mark Castle.
The project was completed on time without any noise, dust or vibration issues with a majority of the work being undertaken during the supermarkets' opening hours.
