Wallbarn was contacted by Contractor Erwood Fencing, who was working on The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, London. The Club was redeveloping some of their terraces which had begun to look a little tired and out of date for such a venue. Due to the prestige of the venue and the value of the corporate entertainment, the current level of paving was not to standard and so a better solution was sought.
The contractor was anxious not to interfere with the waterproofing and insulation courses and wanted to use a system tried and tested solution.
Wallbarn was asked by the client to provide a cost-effective, fast turnaround solution that would create a new fresh look on the terraces.
Wallbarn suggested mounting new decorative slabs onto rubber paving supports.
The soft profile and flexible nature of the rubber support meant there was no risk of damage to the delicate insulation membrane underneath.
On the underside of the supports, small channels allow for the dissipation of excess water and proper drainage. There are four equally spaced lugs on the upper side of the supports to assist the even laying of the paving slabs. Even heavyweights would not lead to the penetration of the membrane.
A decorative high-end finish was achieved using new paving slabs and Wallbarn rubber supports in a very fast turnaround without interfering with the waterproof membrane and ensuring that the current drainage was completely uninterrupted.
The contractor was able to complete the project very quickly and cost-effectively to the satisfaction of the client. It was generally agreed that the aspect and condition of the terrace adjoining the private room was much more suitable for such a prestige venue.
