Wright, Operations Manager for Incentive Facilities Management, at Idlewells
Shopping Centre in Nottinghamshire.
Shopping Centre is a busy retail environment, and as such, we are used to
getting high volumes of foot traffic over our mats. Over time, the non fixed
matting became worn and as a result, the edges of the matting would curl over,
leaving them turned up presenting us with a real trip hazard. This was becoming
a big issue, both operationally and from an insurance perspective, so we knew we
needed to replace our matting with an alternative that suited our multiple requirements"
maintaining a pleasant environment for our shoppers is an important factor,
upholding health and safety standards will always be the primary influence when
it comes to selecting a matting solution for the centre.
Prior and Forma tiles are both complementary to the style and decor of Idlewells,
combined, the matting solution keeps dirt at the door and accidents at bay."
assessing the safety options required to ensure the wellbeing of our customers,
our secondary considerations were cost and design. We wanted our entrance
matting to fit in with the existing environment within our shopping centre. We
also needed an ongoing maintenance programme that would fit in with our future
and budgets. This installation added an element of design, but also proved to
be a very cost effective option. Syncros talked us through a sustainable,
manageable budget which in the long term, will result in considerable cost
Syncros for the installation as the product was right, the price was right, and
the service was exceptional”, said Tim Wright, “and we would not hesitate to
work with them again in the future”.
