Ecotile: dedicated solutions for ESD flooring requirements

07 January 2015

Market-leading manufacturer of interlocking floor tiles, Ecotile, designs and produces its comprehensive range at its UK production facility - providing durable and safe flooring solutions that can be installed with minimal disruption in commercial and industrial applications around the world

As a specialist flooring manufacturer, Ecotile offers dedicated solutions for some of the toughest flooring challenges, including ESD static dissipative flooring systems.

James Gedye, Managing Director, Ecotile explains; “Many of our industrial customers have very specific requirements for ESD flooring – sometimes across entire production modules and sometimes within small, specialised spaces within the business. We frequently deploy our ESD static dissipative flooring system to create dedicated areas – that can also be clearly marked with our logo tiles.

The clean, loose lay of Ecotiles means that the installation process is fast and simple – with minimal downtime. Ecotiles can be installed without the need for a damp proof membrane, screed or adhesive – significantly reducing VOC emissions, installation time and cost.

Our products are injection moulded using compound that demonstrates excellent wear characteristics, chemical resistance and stable electrical properties; easy to clean, durable and hard-wearing, the tiles are very low maintenance.”

Ecotile ESD flooring has been used in a range of applications, including the creation of a dedicated testing area for their customer, Reeve Wireline Technologies Ltd.

Reeves Wireline Technologies is part of the Weatherford oil and gas service company which has a presence throughout every major oil and gas region of the world.

The business helps clients safely and sustainably find, drill, complete and produce oil and gas fields. As specialists in formation evaluation, drilling, well construction, completion and production, the market leader’s innovative technologies, products and services drive down cost and increase the recovery of oil and gas.

Reeve Wireline Technologies Ltd needed to create an ESD testing facility within a large, open plan office area – without disrupting the smooth running of the business.

Gary Spencer, Test Supervisor, of Reeve Wireline Technologies Ltd explains; “As we were installing a specialist flooring system in a busy office space, we were very conscious of choosing a solution that could be integrated seamlessly, with the minimum of disruption, dust and mess.  Ecotile flooring is so simple to install – the existing carpet tiles were removed and the new flooring was fitted quickly and easily. 

With the ESD logo tiles, we have also been able to clearly mark the test area which is important for both our employees and visitors to the site – as well as creating a smart, professional appearance. 

In terms of ongoing performance, we are delighted that our new flooring has maintained its conductivity and is so easy to maintain; we no longer have to schedule cyclical maintenance work and the cleaning of the floor has been integrated within the daily cleaning plan for the main office area.  We can even extend the flooring in the future, which is a real bonus.”
Ecotile’s world-class UK production facility is fully automated and generates zero waste, as the product is 100% recyclable.

Ecotile only uses raw materials that are compliant with internationally recognised and adopted standards for performance, quality and impact on the environment.

Gedye continues; “As a business, we are committed to world class manufacturing standards and have invested in quality to secure our position as the only interlocking flooring tile manufacturer that holds the full complement of quality accreditations and certifications including ISO9001 / 14001, CE Mark, BFI S1 Fire Rating and the R10 anti-slip rating.  Furthermore, all of our tiles are REACH compliant and come with a 10 year warranty as standard.”
