Ulster-Scots Project

12 February 2015

Brief Description

The Ulster-Scots Centre in Belfast which opened last year is still reaping the benefits of choosing Northern Ireland based flooring provider R-Tek Manufacturing.   

The new state of the art centre, which aims to promote the awareness and understanding of the Ulster-Scots tradition in history, language and culture, provides a modern and welcoming building for visitors to enjoy.

Description of Area 

The tiles were installed in the welcome foyer and throughout the main gallery and exhibition areas.  

Floor Tile Used

The marble effect interlocking floor tiles from the Design Collection range where installed, with light grey grout.

The Design Collection interlocking floor tiles come with an 8 year guarantee which is proving to be the solution of choice for a wide variety of applications including retail, commercial and residential.

Area Covered

The centre wanted to enhance the look and feel of the building as soon as visitors arrived which is why they chose to install 200m2 of R-Tek Manufacturing interlocking floor tiles with a marble design effect. This not only provided the centre with all the benefits of interlocking floor tiles but allowed them to have more modern looking floor tiles in keeping with the overall aesthetic of the building.

Time taken to install

It took two men two days to install the tiles.


A spokesman for the Ulster-Scots commented, ‘We are extremely happy with the R-Tek Manufacturing marble design flooring. It’s a great feature that works really well here, and it’s a joy to clean. We use a buffer and after 14 months, it’s still as good as new!’.
