This case study covered a conservatory at a large school, the area being used as a queuing area for the student canteen. Porcelain tiles were used for their durability as it was a heavy foot traffic area.

A rapid setting adhesive was used in this situation to ensure a minimum fixing and turnaround time. The tiles were laid using a 20mm notched trowel which ensures a solid bed of adhesive. Please note the double sealed semi-recessed manhole on the left of the floor, which is a common occurrence in a conservatory. Quite often we recommend installing a recessed mat at the entrance to the room, to help prevent dirt from entering the room. This mat is removable, can be cleaned and is easily replaced, and all exposed tile edges are protected with metal tile trims.

Finally the floor was grouted with a suitable grey grout.
