On the cover:

A natural evolution from mosaics to large surface coverings, Sicis’ in-house R&D and creative teams, through intensive research, have developed the large-format collection, Vetrite. Sicis Art Factory meticulously mixes technology and alchemy with artisanship in this collection, which finds a precise intuition, creating a truly avant-garde aesthetic. Glass, an intrinsic material in the DNA of Sicis, is revolutionized, whereby Sicis iconic fabrics are sandwiched with polymer film between large-format glass slabs. These unprecedented thin glass slabs are available up to 120 x 280 cm (47 x 71 inches), in either 6 or 12 mm thicknesses. Vetrite provides the freedom to think about cladding without any kind of constraints in style, and is suitable for an infinite range of applications, including furniture, countertops, doors and lighting.

Preparing Sub-Floor Slabs That Have Been Submerged for a New Flooring System.

Mother Nature holds nothing back when it comes to storms.
It can sometimes take years for people to recover from hurricanes and tropical storms and the resulting flooding. Some of the most difficult installation challenges arise in the wake of natural disasters. And when water is present, these projects must be approached carefully and sys- tematically. If not, subsequent failure is highly likely.

The general rule of thumb is: no two restoration projects are the same. Each project must be inspected and dealt with according to individual circumstances. This issue of Starlog highlights some of the considerations of installing commercial flooring on slabs that have been submerged. For any of the following steps, Starnet Members are here to help.
