FILA protects In Situ encaustics at Jamie’s Italian

    A FILA tile protection and care regime has been specified, alongside In Situ London’s Moroccan cement tiles, at Jamie’s Italian. The stunning installation spans the restaurant and bar area, on floors and on walls below open serving counters. FILA protection and finishing treatments were chosen to protect and enhance the encaustic-style Moroccan tiles throughout the fixing process.

    One of the latest additions to Jamie’s chain, the new restaurant is situated within the Hilton Hotel at Tower Bridge. Designed by Stiff + Trevillion, the stunning interior broadly follows Jamie’s established style but with a more contemporary feel. Throughout the restaurant, the tiles’ distinct oblique pattern mirrors the suspended ceiling and lighting design and the restaurant’s rustic, earthy tones.

    During the installation, In Situ initially applied FILAPRW200 pre-grouting protector to the cement tiles. The water-based treatment, from FILA’s Green Line, is specially designed for absorbent materials and protects against grout, water and building site residues, without altering appearance or affecting adhesion. FILAPS87 was then used to deep clean the tiles, before protecting the tiles and grout lines against stains with solvent-free FILAMP90 ECO PLUS.
