John L Lord and Son Ltd
At John Lord, we have been manufacturing and installing specialist flooring systems from our Northwest base for over 100 years, and remain one of very few companies in Europe to do so.
During this time our company has gained an enviable reputation for delivering the best customer service. One of the reasons our customers come back to us again is our committment to them from start to finish. We have staff on hand to offer guidance and support from the initial design to the final inspection.
Heavy Duty Jointing Mastic
Epiflex is a 'trucking grade' polyurethane-modified epoxy jointing compound. It has been designed to provide excellent chemical resistance and durability, together with a high degree of flexibility, making it suitable in the prevention of accumulation of debris along floor joints. Epiflex is used as a joint sealant for our full range of resin flooring systems and industrial tiling systems.
Ultrasonic Vibration Industrial Floor Tiling
In 1999 John lord launched Vibrogard HD - a heavy duty, ultrasonically vibrated ceramic tiling system, designed for chemically or physically aggressive environments. This system is however suitable for a wide variety of environments where long-term durability and overall performance are required. Vibrogard HD can be laid flat or with in-built falls to specially designed drainage units. The Vibrogard HD system can be either bonded to the structural substrate or isolated from it by slip membranes.
Aspen Range - Stainless Steel Drainage Systems
The Aspen Range of high quality, long term durable specialist drainage is designed and manufactured in Nottingham at our sister company, Canal Engineering Ltd. Included in the range are Drainage Channels and Covers, Drainage Outlets, Drain Connections, and Spot Gullies and Covers.
We have put together a collection of useful guides written by our Technical Department and by FeRFA - the Resin Flooring Assocation. The guides provide accurate and current information on a number of important topics eg. the selection and specification of resin floor finishes, preparing for the installation of a resin floor, and cleaning and maintaining resin floors after installation.
Are you considering resin flooring as a floor finish?
If so, it is essential in the design and construction stage that the correct product is specified to meet the conditions and expectations during application and in subsequent service.
Consideration should be given to such factors:
- Type and frequency of traffic over the floor
- Type of loading and/ or impact
- Details of chemicals that may come into contact with the floor
- Temperatures that the floor will be required to withstand
- Special requirements eg. slip resistance, anti-static characteristics
- General condition and structural suitability of the substrate
- Aesthetic expectations of the floor eg. colour, uniformity, decorative qualities
- Compliance with hygiene or food safety regulations
- Cleaning requirements
- Associated Stainless Steel Drainage, Kerbing and Wall protection
- Life Expectancy
- Time available for application and curing
