An array of coloured timber

by Tania Wannenburg

One of South Africa’s favourite fast-food outlets gets a flooring refurbishment that matches the company’s vision and mission and upholds its reputation.

Nando’s has been serving the South African fast-food industry for several years now and has built a solid reputation as a company that provides a range of high-quality food that aims to create special family meals and celebrate togetherness.

Living up to this vision is exactly what Forest Flooring and Rubio Monocoat SA aimed to achieve when tasked with refurbishing Nando’s floors in Blackheath, Randburg. The visual aesthetics of a business needs to be aligned to its mission and objective, which inspired the specification of Forest Flooring’s European Oak Engineered Flooring 260 x 2 200 x 21,6mm flooring. In turn, Rubio Monocoat’s timber sealant for the project’s flooring as well as other timber surfaces, such as the tables, was specified.

Forest Flooring’s Province Range used on this project is a fully imported European Oak Engineered Flooring while the sealant offered by Rubio Monocoat Oils is produced in Belgium and imported into South Africa by Rubio Monocoat SA. Rubio products used for this project included RMC Oil 2C in charcoal, cotton white, dark and RMC Hybrid Oil in pop colours, namely blue and yellow. The floor was then sealed with a waterbase varnish from the RMC range after painting the logo onto the floor.

Rubio Monocoat is proud of the fact that its oil offering contains 0% VOCs and is supported by The Green Building Council of South Africa.

The project took only six days to install from start to finish, having commenced on 27 October 2014. However, the flooring was initially pre-oiled in the Rubio Monocoater, an oiling machine imported from Belgium for the pre-oiling of all timber floors. This is an exciting new oiling service that Rubio Monocoat is now able to offer the flooring industry – another cause for much celebration, both for Rubio Monocoat SA and the timber flooring industry.

The phenomenal success of this project once again saw Rubio Monocoat SA working in collaboration with Forest Flooring to refurbish Soweto’s Nando’s outlet in March this year with a similar concept and style.
