Automotive showroom with floor coating in stone look
High-quality coloured quartz stone carpet with low emission properties.
Assignment and requirements
For an exhibition space at a car dealership, the task was to put the vehicles in the spotlight and to visually separate the presentation area from the customer aisles. In order to trigger a wow effect among the visitors, the floor needed to appear high-quality and exclusive. This should underline the brand message of the cars on display.
Particularities and challenges
Since the surfaces are used for different purposes, they had to contrast with each other in terms of colour; part of them was sealed with a matt finish.
At the same time, the flooring should offer a pleasant walking comfort. Especially for frequently accessed areas, a durable and environmentally friendly indoor floor covering had to be used.
System L2 KLB DECOR STONE-CARPET LOW-VOC EP Indoor has been applied as high-quality coating on the basis of epoxy resin. Its low emission properties provide a pleaseant room climate for both staff and visitors. The exhibition space captivates with its classy, upscale appearance and thus has a sales-promoting effect on potential car buyers.
As the quartz pebbles are naturally hard, the surface is sufficiently resilient and abrasion-proof. Walkways and presentation areas were set apart from each other with different coloured stones and stainless steel rails placed as a visual demarcation. In addition, a more distinct 3D look of the floor was created by not closing the pores within the system. The additional matt sealing (as a substitute for the pore-filler DS 925 shown in the system build-up) on the light grey areas makes the floor covering more varied in its superficial look. To protect against plasticiser release and to preserve the flooring’s beautiful appearance in the long term, car tyres must be underlaid with sheets.
