Each of the thirteen venues across the UK are designed and furnished individually. Therefore, in order to create a unique environment it was essential that the floor helped contribute towards the character. Not only was it important for the floor to be attractive but it also needed to be robust enough to compensate for heavy footfall and constant movement of furniture. Raised access flooring was present in the area designated for the bar so suitable preparation was required before the Arturo resin floor was installed.


Arturo is able to provide bespoke and unique floors to create stunning floor designs. In order to create the desired appearance the resin flooring contractor, 3D Royal Floors was able to offer the client several ‘concrete look’ designs to choose from the Arturo Colour Collection. The client decided on ‘Chique Motion’ a dark grey concrete look which was poured on site creating bespoke patterns and swirls.

3D Royal Floors first had to ensure that the raised access floor was ready to accept the resin floor. This was achieved by installing two layers of 12 mm marine ply wood over the area, which was then primed with Arturo EP6500 Primer. Arturo PU2060 flexible polyurethane self-smoothing floor was then applied at 2 mm across the substrate followed by Arturo PU2030 to give the floor the concrete effect.  Finally PU7750 and PU7320 seal coats were applied to provide the necessary finish and durability. The Arturo resin floor was installed across the first and second floors as well as 22 steps and landing.


The seamless ‘concrete look’ floor not only provided Curzon Cinemas with a contemporary, unique and attractive floor but also provides a number of practical benefits such as durability and underfloor comfort. Together with the interior décor the floor has helped create a stylish and comfortable bar which Curzon customers can enjoy a drink and converse.
