DAVID APPLEBY ENGINEERING LTD. – Case Study

Flexi-Tile had the pleasure of working on a commercial garage flooring project for David Appleby Engineering Ltd., a prominent name in the motorsport industry. David Appleby Engineering (DAE) manage race and rally programs for prestigious car marques and are well known in the motor industry for their Aston Martin road and race car services upgrades, bespoke tuning options and quality aftermarket goods covering a range of high end car brands.

A large scale flooring initiative

Following a recent relocation, David Appleby, reached out to Flexi-Tile searching for a suitable flooring solution for their new and impressive 10,000 sq. ft. garage, which was undergoing a major refurbishment. The flooring project brief involved addressing flooring for various sections within the building, encompassing an open workshop, sub-assembly area, machine and fabrication shop and engineers’ offices.

The challenge

Our client needed a flooring solution that could withstand the use of heavy machinery in the fabrication shop, frequent vehicle traffic and extreme weight-bearing loads. As the site renovation was already in progress, sourcing a floor tile that could be quickly installed was paramount for David Appleby. Flexi-Tile stepped up to the challenge.

Flexi-Tile 7mm 

Based on the specification provided by David, we recommended our Flexi-Tile 7mm tile in dark grey, which can accommodate daily use of forklifts, pallet trucks and machinery up to 800kg (3 wheel traffic) or 1000kg (4 wheel traffic).

One of the key benefits with Flexi-Tile floor is the ability to quickly and easily install our interlocking tiles. With no need for screed, adhesive or damp-proof subfloor preparation the floor was laid immediately.
