Royal stamp of approval for UK flooring manufacturer - Ecotile25-Aug-2017 ECOTILE FLOORING LTD
John Bedi, Manager,, of the Royal Mail Group explains; “Our Distribution Centres are home to a significant number of our employees and their health and wellbeing is critical to us.
The added-value safety features that we have been able to include as a result of our flooring choice have been outstanding. With Ecotile, we were able to develop colour-coded walkways and vehicle lanes as well as pedestrian crossings. We have created safe-distance chevrons every 3m and also installed yellow and black ramp sections in order to moderate vehicle speed.
Furthermore, Ecotile floor tiles provide a very comfortable work surface underfoot, delaying the onset of worker fatigue. The acoustics within the building have also been significantly improved.
In partnership with Ecotile, we have been able to significantly improve the safety of our teams and have enhanced their day to day working environment, as well as adding impact to our customer facing areas.”
Market-leading manufacturer of interlocking floor tiles, Ecotile, designs and produces its comprehensive range at its UK production facility - providing durable and safe flooring solutions that can be installed with minimal disruption in commercial and industrial applications around the world.
James Gedye, Managing Director, Ecotile comments; “Our interlocking floor tiles are frequently chosen for flooring projects within warehousing and distribution centres as they offer some important benefits to this hard working sector. Working with the Royal Mail Group, we identified the Ecotile 7mm tile as the most appropriate solution to our client’s flooring challenges.
We were able to quickly and efficiently install Ecotiles – without downtime – as the clean, loose lay of Ecotiles means that the installation process is fast and simple. The floor can be installed without the need for a damp proof membrane, screed or adhesive – significantly reducing VOC emissions, installation time and cost.
Our products are injection moulded using compound that demonstrates excellent wear characteristics, chemical resistance and stable electrical properties. Easy to clean, durable and hard-wearing, the tiles are very low maintenance.”
Available in a range of colours, zoned flooring can be created to easily identify functional areas. Furthermore, the tiles can be produced in own-brand livery, including logo tiles for added impact.
Gedye continues; “As a business, we are committed to world class manufacturing standards and have invested in quality to secure our position as the only interlocking flooring tile manufacturer that holds the full complement of quality accreditations and certifications including ISO9001 / 14001, CE Mark, BFI S1 Fire Rating and the R10 anti-slip rating. Furthermore, all of our tiles are REACH compliant and come with a 10 year warranty as standard.”
