As one of the largest pet food superstore chains across the UK, Jollyes retail premises are bustling, high footfall properties that required a high performance retail flooring solution to match their daily demands.
With over 56 stores in the UK – with further sites opening in the next 12 months – Jollyes needed to identify a low maintenance, visually impressive flooring solution that could be installed with minimum downtime.
Jim Warke, of Jollyes comments: “Our retail stores are the showcase for our business – with Ecotile, we identified a flooring system that is both impressive in terms of appearance whilst standing up to the rigorous daily routine of a busy family-orientated superstore.
Ecotile worked with us and our contractors to schedule the work around our requirements, completing pre-planned sections without impacting the smooth running of our business. A huge bonus for Jollyes, was the ability to use the new floor immediately.
We needed an extremely durable flooring solution that would be easy to maintain. We have virtually eliminated the direct costs and downtime associated with routine maintenance cycles – such as re-painting concrete floors..”
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.
James Gedye, Managing Director of Ecotile comments; “Our interlocking floor tiles are frequently chosen for flooring projects within retail premises as they offer some vital performance benefits to this busy sector. Working with Jollyes, we identified the Ecotile 6mm 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.
Furthermore, our hidden joint system – with push fit seam and bevelled edge – offers optimal protection against water ingress, providing protection to the surface underneath.
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 and quickly eliminated all routine maintenance issues being experienced by Jollyes.”
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.”
