- As the UK’s leading independent fast-fit specialist, National Tyres needed a slick solution that minimised costly downtime and that could be fitted with the least possible disruption to customers and employees.
- It was important to ensure that National Tyres’ focus on quality and attention to detail was reflected in the appearance of its premises.
- With over 200 branches throughout the UK, the flooring solution needed to be exceptionally robust, durable and easy to maintain.
- As a committed employer, National Tyres was keen to make the working environment as safe and comfortable as possible.
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 expansion and re-fit flooring projects within commercial garages as they offer some vital benefits to this demanding sector. We have recently worked with National Tyres to install a new, interlocking floor system as part of an expansion programme including both new premises as well as the refurbishment of existing sites.”
James Gedye, Managing Director, Ecotile
“National Tyres chose Ecotile for its ease of installation; we are rapidly expanding our network and needed a durable flooring solution that would be easy to maintain and look great at existing sites and our new branches. Ecotile offered a safe and comfortable working environment. Maintenance is very easy; if you accidentally damage a tile, it can be lifted and replaced within a couple of minutes. Our team loves the new floor – not only has the appearance of the facilities been lifted dramatically, the floor is comfortable underfoot and for floor-work, and the acoustics within the buildings have been significantly improved.”
Carlo Lamanuzzi, Property Director of National Tyres
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.
