Condition of Floors
The television studio floor had served the BBC well over the last 15 years and was in need of a refurbishment through general wear and tear.
The removal of the existing floor through to the completion of the new studio floor was completed in three weeks. The static dissipative finish, fire lanes and scribing necessitated an additional three days.
TC6 one of the busiest studios at the BBC (650 sq m) required an overhaul of the operating floor. The BBC set their own demanding camera tracking requirements. These had to be met through a day of rigorous camera tests. The new level studio floor passed the tests.
In addition to the camera tracking approved studio floor, the BBC needed a static dissipative finish, a contrasting colour for the fire lanes and numerals. For more information on this type of flooring, please look at our television studio floor page.
The existing floor was carefully removed using various tools and was lightly abraded prior to receiving a prime coat to seal the surface of the sub floor.
