Flitwick Leisure Centre installs Mapei’s waterproofing products

A range of Mapei’s waterproofing and ceramic products have been utilised at Flitwick Leisure Centre, based in Bedfordshire. Tiletec Group were appointed as main contractor to deliver wall and floor tiling to the new build, which also included the pool areas.

The £14.7m new build leisure centre comprises a 25m2 competition pool, 13m2 learner pool (with raised floor) and confidence water pool. In addition to the pools, there are four discrete changing/shower areas which have been fully tiled; wet change, dry change, outside change and fitness suite changing, along with floor tiling to circulation areas and staircases amounting to a further 750m2 of tiling.

Mapei products were specified alongside the porcelain tiles, which were installed throughout the floor and wall areas as well as the pool areas. Mapei products spanned from screed, render and waterproofing to a range of different tile adhesives. Products installed included: 4,000m2 of Mapei’s high performance flexible rapid-set adhesive Granirapid, Planitop Fast 330, Ultraplan Renovation Screed and Mapeker Rapid-set Flex.

Flitwick Leisure Centre is a superbly equipped ‘wet and dry’ centre offering a wide range of leisure activities for all the community. The project was completed in early March 2016.
