Artistic Surfaces recently completed an installation of a designer epoxy floor system at the commercial space formally known as the Art Bar in Fort Lauderdale. The 5,500-square foot fully renovated nightclub located in the Las Olas Riverfront area will soon reopen as the Escape Lounge.
For this new establishment, the owners wanted sleek black floors and selected Artistic Surfaces to bring that vision to life. Epoxy Metallic flooring was selected. This flooring option can be very exotic-looking, which is great for businesses like bars and nightclubs looking to add a bit of flair to their interiors. The high-performance epoxy is also exceptionally durable, making it excellent for the high foot traffic associated with these types of establishments.
We started with proper floor preparation which is essential for a successful epoxy installation. The floors were prepped using an HTC 800 grinder with 25 grit diamonds, creating the surface needed for the epoxy application. A small hand grinder was also used to get those hard to reach areas which the HTC could not reach.
To fix portions of uneven surfaces located throughout the nightclub we used a CTS Rapid Set TRU Self-Leveling Overlay.
The epoxy was poured with a black base. For a much richer color, the black portion of the epoxy floor was also pigmented with jet black metallic color.
The floors feature bold curved stripes pigmented with aluminum metallic color, which can be seen weaving throughout the walkway of the nightclub.
