Update: Spring 2010: Floored by fab tile system (Aftermarket magazine) PVC Flooring system from TilePlans
Workshop floors have a tough time of it, being exposed to oils and
chemicals and the hectic life of a busy workshop but this flooring system from
TilePlans steps up to the challenge.
Of course these floor tiles are hard-wearing, stain-resistant and easy to clean
but the best bit about them is how easy they are to fit. They interlock so you
decide how you want them; you can separate MOT bays from walkways, distinguish
areas where the public has access, you can even promote your business and the
services you offer within the floor itself!
Eight colours are available and line marker tiles can be used to separate areas
(yellow is the favourite choice as a line marker, contrasting well with dark
grey, black and navy blue). You can place promotional information or health and
safety signs under clear tiles, which can be changed when required. The company
can also supply printed graphic tiles and water-jet cut tile logos.
End of Update: Spring 2010.
TilePlans create smarter Garage Floor and Workshop Floor systems.
Spillages of brake fluid, oil or fuel are a common hazard for any workshop
floor or garage flooring or even a car showroom so it makes sense to use
hard wearing workshop garage flooring which is resistant to oils and
chemicals while still being easy to keep clean.
Leading PVC flooring tiles specialist TilePlans offers the proven and best
garage floor solution which is their UK made PVC Interlocking
workshop floor tile system.
It is easy to clean as well as being resistant to oil and chemicals. TilePlans
garage flooring tiles have, for health and safety reasons, extra slip
resistance built in to prevent falls or trips by prospective customers as they
enter the showroom, garage or workshop.
Workshop designers can choose from a wide range of TilePlans workshop
floor accessories, textures, colours and finishes.
For example there are heavy duty studded workshop floor tiles, new slate look
PVC floor tiles with hidden joints which create the warm and authentic look of
a slate floor and there are dimple tiles for a modern look in the various
lighter traffic areas such as reception or offices.
To fix your brand in customers’ minds or highlight a safety message, logos can
be built into the workshop flooring by using TilePlans’ new transparent PVC
tiles to create your own individual and welcoming garage floor. - think of
garage flooring as part of the fixtures and fittings of the business which you
can use to promote your image and brand.
Corporate coloured workshop flooring can easily be achieved by using TilePlans
'RAL colour number' matching service. There are infinite possibilities in terms
of garage floor designs and finishes to create your own unique style.
George Murray, proprietor of Murray Automotive, a commercial garage workshop in
Falkirk, Scotland, invested in PVC interlocking floor tiles to improve the
appearance of the workshop in stages. In addition he used different coloured
tiles as line markers to create a ‘no go’ zone around the MOT area.
Mr. Murray said: “There is a high volume of traffic coming in and we needed
something easy to maintain.“I like it because we could use the bright yellow
line tiles to make lines on the floor and we could put in yellow edging ramps
as well. We used the line tiles and edging around the MOT bay and it makes a
great demarcation area.
Health and safety people have been in and are impressed. Everybody is clear
about where they can walk and where they can’t.” At the moment the Motor Trade
needs all the boosts it can get so anything you can do to bring in the
prospective customer can only act as a bonus for your garage or showroom.
