TNT chose Ergo Floor Systems to supply it with 900 sq m of Standline interlocking PVC floor tiles at the group distribution centre of its fashion division in Leicester. TNT Fashion needed a way of blocking the excessive noise caused by pallet pump trucks being pulled over a metal grid mezzanine floor.
As a result, Ergo was asked to provide one metre-wide walkways through the warehouse with a product that could handle wheeled and pedestrian traffic, while providing sound insulation. The floor also needed to have drainage holes so that water from the warehouse sprinkler system could pass through in the event of a fire.
One of the benefits of the tiles is the speed of installation. The interlocking system means the tiles can be dry-laid directly onto the existing sub floor, without the need for adhesive or extensive preparation work. No operational areas were closed while the floor was being fitted, because it doesn’t contain any Volatile Organic Chemicals. It was ready for trafficking as soon as it was laid down.
