The Rideout Regional Medical Center, a 6-story, 220,000-square-foot facility, includes a full-service trauma center with a rooftop heliport for Life Flight operations and private hospital rooms with serenely tiled bathrooms. A full system of tile installation products from Custom Building Products was specified to protect these and other tile assemblies when the hospital was expanded.
Tile throughout the hospital was set with two different thin-sets from CUSTOM, and usage was determined by tile size, composition and location. Used for smaller tile, VersaBond® Professional Thin-Set Mortar provides good bond strength to substrates and also cures consistently, even in cold climates. Larger tile on the project was installed with ProLite® Premium Large Format Tile Mortar.
The primary grout at the hospital was upgraded from a traditional cement option to Fusion Pro® Single Component® Grout for the ultimate in stain resistance. Fusion Pro is stain-proof, color perfect and ready to use right from the re-sealable bucket. This revolutionary grout is spread and cleaned at the same time, plus it never needs sealing. Installers at NCTS experienced another benefit of using single component grout – increased ease of application.
