Specialist flooring products from TAL were used in the extension of Cresta Shopping Centre.

When it came to the upgrade and extension of the upmarket Cresta Shopping Centre in Randburg, TAL played a central role. Their specialist flooring products were used by the tiling contractors in the installation of 24 000m² of new tiles and the installation was done while ensuring the shopping centre remained fully-operational during the day with no disruption to trading.

All tiling had to take place after-hours and had to be entirely trafficable the following day. To minimise disruption to tenants and shoppers, TAL Goldstar 6 tile adhesive was used for its rapid-setting properties, allowing for traffic over the newly-installed tiles after six hours.

TAL Goldstar 6 tile adhesive was used for the installation of large format tiles, which included 600mm x 1 200mm porcelain tiles for the mall walkways, and 600mm x 600mm porcelain tiles for the walls and floors in the restrooms. A portion of the tile installation included suspended concrete slabs on the upper level of the mall. TAL Bond was used in the adhesive mix as a total water replacement to ensure enhanced strength and flexibility for the tiling installation on these upper levels.

When seeking a product range with such variety and expansive performing properties, TAL has proven, through this project, that it can meet and exceed all expectations.
