Hotel receives 5 star treatmentPosted: January 11, 2010 by Tor Coatings
Opened in 1973, the circular Sheraton Park Tower stands elegantly amidst the historic streets that define one of London’s most stylish and beloved districts.
Located in the heart of London’s fashionable Knightsbridge stands this luxurious hotel – a stone’s throw away from graceful Hyde Park, Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the chic dining haunts of the city’s most stylish set.
The circular tower ensures each of the 280 guest rooms including 22 suites benefits from sweeping outward views of London’s iconic skyline. The penthouse suites–one-of-a-kind in Knightsbridge–offer 360 degrees of contemporary luxury.
The existing felt and asphalt roof had degraded due to excessive weathering which caused cracking and rivelling resulting in the problem of water ingress.
Tor Coatings was approached by Full Metal Jacket Ltd to provide a comprehensive site survey. The client needed to solve the problem quickly, effectively and without disruption to guests or administration. The client also required that the roof be fully waterproofed and supported by a guarantee.
After a thorough inspection and photographic survey by Tor Coatings, the Elastaseal™ 20 year system was specified.
Elastaseal™ provides long-term resistance to ponded water and is especially suitable for flat roofs and gutters. This completely reinforced, permanent elastomeric seamless system encapsulates the roof to provide a completely joint-free and 100% waterproof membrane.
The Elastaseal™ system is a cold-liquid applied coating that eliminates fire hazards and the inconvenience caused by using alternative hot applied systems that require the building to be vacated. By using Elastaseal™ it meant there was no disruption to ongoing operational activities of the hotel.
The system was professionally applied by Full Metal Jacket Ltd, who are a trained Tor Partner. This partnership allowed Tor to provide the client with a 20 year Latent Defects guarantee covering both the product and its application.Back to news
