The best floors are based on subfloors from Schönox.
Schönox produces primers, repair products, floor leveling compounds, adhesives and waterproofing materials that can successfully take damaged, uneven subfloors through to finished ready-to-use floors.
Schönox provides technologically-advanced solutions that focus on sustainability, high product performance and efficient, cost-saving installations. Its products allow projects to be completed faster, addressing tough subfloor issues with the smartest use of installation labor. Using Schönox solutions, many subfloors that normally would require demolition can be renovated instead, saving time and money while providing a subfloor that will perform for years. Schönox also has a strong environmental platform, with most of its products contributing to LEED credits.
Schönox was founded over 120 years ago in Germany, where the products are manufactured under the strictest quality standards. While active in over 20 countries, that list has not included North America until recently. HPS North America, Inc. partnered with Schönox to import and support Schönox products. Together Schönox is growing rapidly in the North American marketplace based on the strength of its products and the way it does business.
Schönox has a commitment to continuous research and development and can assist with the details of challenging subfloor issues.
Often the best answer for a challenging subfloor is a self-leveling compound. Instead of demolishing, cracked, uneven substrates made of concrete, gypsum, wood and other materials can be covered with Schonox self-leveling compounds. The result is a smooth, sound subfloor ready for flooring installation in less time and prepared in an environmentally-responsible manner. Schonox offers a self-leveling solution that dries in two hours, an option for exterior use, as well as products made with recycled content.
The first steps in a flooring project make all the difference. Schönox primers and moisture mitigation systems address issues with almost any substrate, even those with humidity readings of 100%. For projects where speed is an issue, Schönox has primers that dry in 10 to 30 minutes, as well as primers that allow the forgoing of bead blasting. All of these Schönox products have low VOCs, which can contribute to LEED credits and make project installation safe.
Schönox has the products to fill trenches, voids, cracks and uneven substrates with an array of products targeted to your specific project needs. Schönox understands the need for speed and flexibility in addressing tough subfloor issues as well as confidence the repaired substrate will not sag or crack. Schönox has a wide range of products that deliver unexpected benefits for concrete and gypsum substrates, including a patching and smoothing compound that is resistant to moisture.
Installation speed and efficiency are on full display with Schönox waterproofing and tanking systems. With Schönox, waterproof membranes are put in place, and their overlapping sections sealed at the same time, using rollers provided in the fully-integrated set. The result is an installation that is 40% faster than traditional methods. Schönox provides all of the accessories needed for residential and commercial wet rooms and swimming pools with ceramic and natural stone coverings.
Schönox has the expected benefit of a full adhesive line for almost every floor covering, as well as many unexpected benefits – including an adhesive applied from a standing position, a product that allows wood floors to contract and expand with room temperature and humidity, and low-VOC adhesives that contribute to LEED credits. The innovative Schönox Roll and Go adhesive speeds the LVT flooring process, allowing furniture and fixtures to be moved back in place immediately.
