Having successfully installed 4 studio floors for IMG in 2013 we were selected at short notice by IMG Media to install the floor which is to be used by their client Discovery.
The Elgood Universal Television studio floor system.
Rough finished concrete slab with a variation of 28 mm between the lowest and the highest points. The finished floor had a thickness of approximately 35-40mm to correct this deviation and provide a super flat floor.
Red oxide paint was removed using vacuum contained diamond grinding.
The floor provides optimum camera pedestal performance and 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.
Anti static finish as standard to eliminate nuisance static electricity that would otherwise interfere with camera use.
The Elgood Studio Floor System has been proven over 30 years with more than 130 studio installations. With an average working life of more than 10 + years these studio floors provide long term economy.
We retain a small in-house team of full time employees specifically trained to install the Elgood Range of Studio floorings, the demand for which is intermittent.
All serve an apprenticeship of four years.
The Studio floor can receive semi permanent studio floor paints such as Mylands and be scrubbed clean as a matter of routine.
The surface has a slight profile to ease the application of semi permanent studio paints.
