An installation by another contractor over December 2012 and January 2013 had failed.
Two months later the decision was made to remove the floor which was not fit for purpose.
Unfortunately the removal of the failed floor meant that some of the underlying screed and timber joists were damaged.
The weakened layer had to be lifted with care and reinstated. This increased the design thickness from 50mm to closer to 90mm.
Elgood Flooring were consulted by Elstree Film Studios Project team.
The Floor was cleaned thoroughly using powerful industrial vacuum cleaners before sealing the floor and carrying out numerous repairs.
The floor provides optimum camera pedestal performance.
The floor is perfect for Multi Camera use. A camera can be used anywhere on the floor making it ideal for multiple sets.
The floor is free of undulations, inclines and surface irregularities. These details are of no consequence on most floors, but totally unacceptable in a modern HD television studio.
Tough wearing surface designed to withstand the range of use expected of a modern HD studio facility.
