Flowpoint paving grout used at the Citadelle of Namur

One of our major suppliers Instarmac, manufacturers of UltraScape Flowpoint Rapid set grout, has recently been involved in a project at Belgium’s historic fortresss, The Citadelle of Namur. 

The Citadelle of Namur is located on a hill that overlooks the joining of the Sambre and Meuse rivers. The fortress is steeped in tradition with ‘millions of years of geological history and 2,000 years of human history’.

With stunningly beautiful views of Namur, visitors to the historic site were given even more reason to visit when cable cars were added in 2021 to the already extensive list of attractions. 

It was this area that required a new paving installation, allowing visitors to fully appreciate the panoramic views in all of their splendour. 

Citadelle Of Namur Uses Flowpoint Grout
Flowpoint was chosen for grouting at The Citadelle of Namur

Why Flowpoint paving grout was chosen

The Citadelle is an incredibly popular tourist attraction. As such, extensive downtime to complete any works around the entrance to the new cable cars and exhibition centre was not possible.

It was therefore critical for the paving to be installed quickly to minimise downtime. 

The project also required durable materials that would not only withstand heavy foot traffic but also provide a quality finish that would compliment the historical site and its surroundings. 

With over 25 years’ experience supplying major contractors worldwide, Instarmac’s BS 7533  compliant, premium, rapid-setting paving grout, UltraScape Flowpoint Smooth, was specified for use at the Citadelle.

Supplied by Instarmac International’s Belgian partner, Nijst Natuursteen, the flowable paving grout was used to joint 800sqm of paving at the Citadelle.

Benefits of using Flowpoint Smooth

UltraScape Flowpoint Smooth is a fast set, flowable paving grout that allows contractors to grout large areas of paving quickly and efficiently.

Suitable for joints from 3mm to 50mm and up to 200mm deep, Flowpoint Smooth has been developed over a number of years to provide a durable finish which will not crack or stain – even in the hottest and coldest of temperatures.

With an initial set after just 15 minutes, and a walk-on time of just one hour for pedestrians, and four hours for vehicles, Flowpoint Smooth has become synonymous with fast application, cost-effectiveness and robust, long lasting jointing of up to 40 years. 

UltraScape Flowpoint is available in four grades – Standard, Smooth, ECO and Fine – and comes in two colours – Natural Grey and Charcoal – with a third colour Stone Grey due out any time in February/March 2024.

UltraScape provides a large range of both permeable and impermeable bedding, priming, sealing and jointing solutions – all of which are available to buy from The Paving Experts. 

Visitors to the historic Citadelle, now enjoy a beautifully paved area

With work completed, visitors to the stunning and historic Citadelle now enjoy a beautifully paved area whilst they wait for the cable cars to take them to enjoy the panoramic views around the historic site.
