Aladdin Theater Flooring Upgrade – Portland

December 22, 2015

The Alladin Theatre in SE Portland originally opened as a vaudeville house in the 1920’s and contains many it’s original features including a heavily deteriorated concrete floor.

As part of an overall upgrade of all flooring throughout the theatre Alternative Surfaces was asked to provide a more durable surface that would eliminate the defects in the surface and provide an easier to clean and maintain surface.

A very tight timeline had to be adhered to due to the amount of bookings that the theatre had in place.  All the seats on the main level were removed and the floor was diamond ground to remove the remaining paint and contaminants on the surface.  The cracks, divots and pits were filled and the surface re-ground to provide a smooth surface.




A primer coat of Sika 107 epoxy was applied through the work area and allowed to dry overnight.  The following morning we applied a tinted coat of Sika 510LPL and broadcast to rejection a custom colored vinyl flake.  This extremely fast curing coat was dry in 2 hours and we were able to scrape the surface and apply another coat of Sika 510LPL.  The entire surface was allowed to cure overnight and the final top coat was applied with an anti-slip additive.

The entire project was completed in 4 days, on time and on budget and with no impact on normal operations to this historic venue.

Our applicators use the most professional equipment and procedures to assure speed and simplicity of application. Our advanced equipment is custom manufactured for high production, top quality preparation methods for any and all types of floor conditions with tight timelines.
