TilePlans Retail Flooring Tiles Calcott Hall Farm Shop - a great DIY result.

Retailers can create a smart and easy-to-clean floor that withstands the heaviest of footfalls with a special version of TilePlans’ hard-wearing PVC interlocking floor tiles.

The PVC flooring tiles specialist has launched its sturdy interlocking tile in a format that keeps the tile joints out of sight by hiding the interlock under the floor itself.

The tiles fit neatly together to present a grouted appearance at the joint – but there’s no need for either grout or glue.
The PVC flooring has a soft and warm feel for shoppers under foot while the noise absorbing qualities of the heavy duty tiles minimize the echo experienced with normal hard floors.

One satisfied customer is Andrew McTurk, proprietor of the Calcott Hall Farm Shop in Brentwood, Essex, who recently ordered tiles for an extension and said the colour match was perfect with the tiles previously supplied for the main shop.
Customers had been pleased with the floor as part of the extension.Mr. McTurk chose the slate effect PVC interlocking floor tiles because he wanted a floor that was easy to clean, could withstand various wet and dry types of applications, and which was not permanent in situ but could be changed.He said: “One of the biggest things was that we could lay it almost instantly without having the shop closed while the installation was going on …..And there’s the fact we could do it ourselves.
We are not skilled at laying floors but we managed that quite easily.”

An unexpected benefit for Mr. McTurk is that the floor has helped to cut losses from spillages and breakages.“If a bottle of apple juice slips off a shelf, it doesn’t break because it’s got a softer landing, so that’s a huge benefit, “said Mr. McTurk.

TilePlans’ retail interlocking PVC floor tiles with hidden interlock joint at 333 mm square are smaller than the industrial version to give greater flexibility in limited spaces.

They are also slightly thicker at 7.5 mm to allow for the under-floor interlock.Yet they still possess the flame retardant and oil and chemical resistant qualities of the industrial tile, offer better slip resistance than a standard painted floor.

The tiles come in slate finish and dimple varieties.Mike Bimpson, head of Marketing at TilePlans, said: “We realize that retailers need a smart, smooth and professional-looking floor so we adapted our standard tile to hide the interlock.

“Our textured slate effect tile is particularly effective when seen in terracotta, dark grey and silver colours.Interlocking floor tiles are easy to clean and maintain. There’s no risk of cracking or chipping, no grout to replace and no need to level the floor.These tiles can also be used for exhibition stands because of the speed and ease with which they can be installed and dismantled.”
