Flexi-Tile were delighted to work on a recent flooring refurbishment project with XOCEAN. Based in Louth, XOCEAN provide turnkey ocean data collection services using a safe, economic and carbon neutral platform, an Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV).
XOCEAN were looking for a new flooring solution as part of a plan to refurbish their technical centre and having reviewed our website, they arranged a site visit to our factory and showroom based in Lisburn to view the full range of PVC interlocking tiles and discuss the most suitable application for their industrial flooring requirements.
The project involved two separate areas that required new flooring – one area within the technical centre that was used frequently by forklifts and pallet trucks and a separate mezzanine area that was used for light foot traffic only.
Having discussed the specific requirements of each area with one of our flooring experts, they decided to use Flexi-Tile 7 for the technical area refurbishment. Flexi-Tile 7 can withstand weights of up to 1000kg and is suitable for a wide range of industrial applications where heavy loads and machinery operate on a daily basis. Our best-selling Flexi-Tile Dark Grey textured tile was used in combination with Flexi-Tile Yellow to clearly define certain areas within the space and provide a durable yet aesthetically pleasing finish.
For the mezzanine area, we recommended the Flexi-Tile 5 which is widely used and suitable for lighter commercial applications and perfect for areas of light footfall. To ensure colour consistency within the overall space, dark grey tiles were used in this area as well – an effective and low maintenance option for walkways.
Colin Henry, Maintenance Lead – XOCEAN said ‘It was a pleasure working with Flexi Tile in the fit out of our new workshop facility. The Flexi Tile team worked quickly & efficiently to install the tiles throughout each space, and the final finish quality brought to life the overall look that we set out to achieve.’
