A Fila surface care regime has been specified at exclusive haven, The Orchard Spa in the Cotswolds. Set around a network of clearwater lakes, the £3-million spa complex forms part of The Lakes by yoo – a 650-acre luxury development, designed by renowned Architect, Angus Morrogh-Ryan. Fila surface care products were specified to care for and protect a variety of Mandarin Stone surfaces, which were installed by C&A Bennett Tiling.
Nestled within an arboretum and orchard of mature trees, The Orchard Spa spans 10,000 sq ft and includes a 20-metre indoor pool, a clubroom, treatment rooms, gym, steam room and sauna. As part of the project, C&A Bennett Tiling installed wall and floor tiles; sourced, fabricated and installed bespoke vanity tops and upstands, and treated all surfaces with Fila products. Natural surfaces specified included over 1000m2 of Mandarin Stone’s Basalt and Granite floor tiles around the Spa pool, within treatment rooms and throughout walkways and corridors. Mandarin Stone’s Polished Carrara Marble was also installed onto walls and vanity tops.
Atmospheric conditions contributed towards the natural manifestation of efflorescence, which was tackled using DETERDEK PRO. After installation, DETERDEK PRO was used to carry out an initial wash and CLEANER PRO was recommended for ongoing daily maintenance. Stone surfaces were treated with Fila Hydrorep – a water-repellent penetrating sealer, and stain-proofing FOB XTREME. Combined cleaner, stain and wax remover – PS87 PRO – was also specified for periodic deep cleaning, whilst stain proofer, MP90, was applied to marble surfaces. All treatments provided high coverage and long lasting protection, without forming a film or altering appearance.
