A Fila floor protection system has been tailor-made, alongside Mapei Ultratop cementitious flooring, at IWM London, the flagship branch of the Imperial War Museums. Fila products chosen for the heavy traffic environment include high performance FILAFOB Porous Stone Sealer and FILACLEANER Concentrated All Surface Cleaner, both part of the ecological, award-winning Fila Green Line range. The site intervention was coordinated by the Construction Manager, Lend Lease and Fila systems were applied by Polished Concrete Designs, for Trade Contractor, ITC Concepts Ltd. Designed by Foster + Partners, the revamped museum includes world-class First World War Galleries centered around a dramatic new atrium space within which large iconic objects are suspended – from a Harrier jet to a V2 rocket. Following the floor installation, Mapei Ultratop was sealed FILAFOB, a non film-forming treatment that protects against stains without altering surface appearance. FILACLEANER was chosen to maintain the cementitious floor; the biodegradable cleaner does not damage the sealant or leave a film on the surface.
