HTC Superfloor™ at Sweden’s most modern convention center
Newly built Åby Arena from 2018 – situated just outside Gothenburg, Sweden – is a multi-purpose, full-service complex that besides a convention hall, offers meeting facilities, hotels, restaurants, a cafe and gym. It also has Europe's most modern harness track.
Something that gives the complex an extra shine is the 11,000 m2 convention hall floor – an HTC Superfloor™ Platinum.
Ulf Johansson at AJ Floor Solutions, which was behind the project, explains: “The challenge in this project was in transforming a poorly cast concrete floor into an HTC Superfloor Platinum.”
Using floor grinders and diamond tools from HTC, the various floor layers were taken down to a smooth surface that could then be ground and polished in a total of eight steps to a high-gloss, functional and dust-free concrete floor.
Why grind a concrete floor instead of choosing other floor solutions?
“HTC Superfloor is an excellent solution,” says Ulf. “After all, the concrete's already there, so why not use it? We got a fantastic floor, just by grinding and polishing.” A modern convention center has gained a sustainable floor that will be walked by countless people in the years to come. This floor can take it. You have our word on that.
