The Challenge

Reeve Wireline Technologies Ltd had a specific requirement for a new test room using ESD flooring. The space is used as a large, open plan office area and the businesses needed to dedicate part of the existing space to specialist ESD test facilities.

1. It was important to the business to minimise the disruption to staff working in the open office space – and to limit the amount of dust and mess produced during the installation.
2. The business needed to deploy conductive flooring in specific areas, where dedicated testing facilities were to be installed. It was also vital that the ESD areas were clearly marked for both employees and visitors.
3. Reeve Wireline Technologies Ltd needed a flooring solution that was easy to maintain – that could be incorporated within the regular cleaning regimen of the office area.

The 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.

“Working with Reeve Wireline Technologies Ltd, we identified the Ecotile 7mm ESD tile as the most appropriate solution to our client’s specific flooring challenges.

The clean, loose lay of Ecotiles means that the installation process is fast and simple – with minimal downtime. Ecotiles can be installed without the need for a damp proof membrane, screed or adhesive – significantly reducing VOC emissions, installation time and cost.

We were able to deploy our ESD static dissipative flooring system to create a dedicated testing area – clearly marked with our logo tiles.

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.”

James Gedye, Managing Director, Ecotile

“As we were installing a specialist flooring system in a busy office space, we were very conscious of choosing a solution that could be integrated seamlessly, with the minimum of disruption, dust and mess. Ecotile flooring is so simple to install – the existing carpet tiles were removed and the new flooring was fitted quickly and easily.

With the ESD logo tiles, we have also been able to clearly mark the test area which is important for both our employees and visitors to the site – as well as creating a smart, professional appearance.

In terms of ongoing performance, we are delighted that our new flooring has maintained its conductivity and is so easy to maintain; we no longer have to schedule cyclical maintenance work and the cleaning of the floor has been integrated within the daily cleaning plan for the main office area.

Furthermore we can easily extend the floor into new areas which is a real bonus.”

A Sustainable Solution

All Ecotiles come with a 10 year product warranty as standard.

Manufactured using the highest grade material, once the tiles have reached the end of their useful life, we will collect the tiles – free of charge – and recycle them to produce the next generation of Ecotile.
