Golfing greats stride out on Exposa® decorative concrete

The open delivers worldwide audience for RTU...

RTU has seen the spotlight shine upon several high-profile projects, for which we were delighted to have provided our building products. This year, the completion of Queen’s University’s Biological Sciences Building and the launch of Translink’s Milewater House Depot was followed by the completed refurbishment of Hillsborough Castle, opened to the public by HRH The Prince of Wales.

Then, the oldest golf major in the world arrived at Royal Portrush Golf Course. The highest-profile names in the sport, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and winner Shane Lowry, walked the course’s extensive Exposa® pathways supplied by RTU. As Managing Director, David McIlory, confirms “there’s no better test of your product’s quality than a record-breaking crowd at one of the world’s largest sporting events.”

RTU is an innovative company, always looking to the future and researching new products that meet the evolving needs of our customers. The quality of RTU lies in an expert team that understands construction, and a range which delivers diverse, agile and efficient products. We counter the challenges our customers face by offering project-specific solutions, seamless logistics and excellent service that ensures hassle-free delivery and peace-of-mind.


Our beautiful decorative concrete is the ultimate alternative to traditional paving, asphalt, tarmac and loose gravel. Exposa® is highly durable, low maintenance, practical, safe and flexible, with a slip-resistant finish that makes it the ideal choice for residential driveways, patios and footpaths as well as commercial applications in large pedestrianised zones. What makes Exposa® stand out from the crowd is the variety of colours on offer that allows designers and architects to be as bold or subtle in their design work.

Ultraflo® is Ireland’s only ready mixed hemihydrate liquid floor screed. With very low shrinkage, the risk of cracking and movement joint requirements are greatly reduced. Also, it offers improved energy efficiency and lower runnings costs with underfloor heating, and being a hemihydrate screed means it requires no buffing/grinding to the floor surface. Ultraflo® is produced in RTU’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and with a ten-year proven track record, it ensures a perfect screed every time.

Ultracem® is a Portland cement-based, pump applied liquid floor screed that excels due to its fast-track qualities as well as the speed and ease of install over traditional sand:cement screeds. The sheer diversity of Ultracem® is highlighted by its compatibility with all standard floor coverings including tiles, wood, vinyl, carpet and wet areas. When compared to traditional sand:cement screeds, the significantly reduced thickness and weight of the product deliver an agile and efficient solution for commercial, residential and self-build projects.
