The Challenge: Eschmann Needed A Low Maintenance Floor
As part of an ongoing investment plan to improve the efficiency of the manufacturing process and provide a superb working environment for its employees Eschmann Holdings wanted to install a tough and low maintenance floor that was colour coded and that could be moved around if necessary.
Location: Lancing, West Sussex
Volume: 1,300 m² in 4 phases
- The existing substrate was asphalt so the preparation required to make this suitable for a traditional floor covering such as epoxy or vinyl would have been extremely costly, time consuming and disruptive. Ecotile was dry laid without the need for screed, adhesives or any other treatment of the substrate.
- It was important to colour code each stage of the production process to maximise efficiency and also to mark out storage areas for specific items to ensure they were always returned to the same place each time.
- Due to the nature of the products Eschmann manufacture a large area of the floor needed to be anti-static but not to require maintenance of its anti-static properties.
- Eschmann wanted to install the tiles themselves to fit in with their busy production schedule.
The Solution: A Durable, Low Maintenance & Easy to Install Flooring Solution
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.
“Our interlocking floor tiles are frequently chosen for flooring projects where the substrate is problematic. The interlocking tile system means Ecotile can be dry laid over any hard surface including oily, damp, uneven or contaminated floors quickly and easily – in that case Eschmann were able to do it themselves without any downtime or disruption to their production schedule. The 500mm x 500mm tiles are ideal for demarcating zones – even very small or oddly shaped areas and they can be laid in a chequered pattern to warn of a hazard such as forklift or pallet truck movements as Eschmann have done here.
