Miniland features amazing mini model scenes from Europe and the USA featuring nearly 40 million LEGO® bricks. The models change frequently from year to year and contain many animated and moving pieces. Richco were advised that the newly refurbished section of Miniland required various areas to have new themed flooring which needed to give the
appearance of tarmac and gravel. The Richco application team carried out preparation to the newly refurbished area by removing the old surfaces, rekeying and applying a suitable primer. Once the area had been fully prepared and primed, the Richco application team then applied Richco Rubber Top. Richco Rubber Top surfacing is a seamless, granulated rubber flooring system which is bound by a polyurethane resin. The continuous surface is immensely strong and durable. This system allows the ingress of water through the Rubber Top system to avoid the pooling of water in the wet weather and allowing surrounding trees to survive.
