Laying porcelain tiles on a suspended plywood floor connecting with a timber surface on both sides, at the French Connection store in Sheffield's Meadow Hall Shopping Centre, was the challenge facing P. A. Flooing. The Schlüter-DITRA uncoupling membrane was specified to take up the considerable amount of movement anticipated in the floor. And a total of 55 metres of the Schlüter-DILEX-AKWS movement joint was used where the tiles met the Oak and Maple flooring. "This was an absolutely vital part of the whole installation, because the timber must have room to expand and contract. Without a movement joint the tiles could 'pop' and the wood could split or lift," said P.A. Flooring Director Mike Horner.
