CG Flooring Systems are used to leaving a safe and slip-resistant surface for industrial warehouses, and recently they were asked to adapt this level of safety for sanitised laundry service vehicles.
As leaders in industrial flooring systems, they were asked if their techniques could be applied to environments other than concrete floors; and in particular, to Plywood for vehicle floors of the sanitised laundry industry.
“We were originally approached by Carl Taylor at Resin Building Products” said Alan Yuill, Director of CG Flooring Services. “He was working on a solution for Ben Fowles at Vincent Timber, and wanted to see if we had the resources to prepare a number of 8ft x 4ft Plywood Sheets, apply an antislip coating to them, and have them dried and ready for installation at quite short notice.”
The floor repair and refurbishment specialists, based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire happily took on the project, and rose to the exciting challenge that comes with a new venture.
“We had some space to do the work, and the technique to be able to do the job” Alan added. “To facilitate the drying of the boards we adapted an area of our premises to allow a number of boards to dry at once to help us meet the deadline, which was a series of very short time scales.“
The requirement came from a spec that was put together by Resin Building Products for Vincent Timber. An initial total of 480 boards needed to be adapted in a period of about ten weeks, and supplied ready to be fitted to the Trucks.
“We used a combination of material that we’ve successfully used time and again on industrial floors, and we were sure these could be utilised on other sufaces” Mr Yuill told us. “A total of 1382m2 of coating was used in initial the job and it’s also a relatively easy to clean surface, which is great when you’re supplying to the sanitised laundry service” he added.
Ben Fowles of Vincent Timber said: “In conjunction with Resin Building Products, CG Flooring provided us with a technically sound solution, with a short leadtime, in a most professional manner, at a competitive price. We look forward to continuing our relationship in the Commercial Vehicle sector and exploring other markets, of which there are many”
