SIKA FLOORING SOLUTION LAYS FOUNDATION FOR SUCCESS AT THIS YEAR’S FERFA AWARDS

A high-profile project, for which Sika supplied the quality flooring solution, has collected a prized industry accolade.

Sika, in collaboration with Zircon Flooring, achieved a ‘Highly Commended’ status in the Large Commercial Project of the Year category at this year’s FeRFA resin flooring association awards. The triumph commemorated the companies’ joint delivery of a super-flat, seamless floor refurbishment at ITV’s Leeds-based studio where the popular soap Emmerdale is filmed.

Pete Hollingworth at Sika said: “What fantastic news. The ITV project was a model collaborative effort between Sika and Zircon Flooring. To have our efforts recognised at the FeRFA awards, which celebrate the very finest in resin flooring, is a tribute to the expertise and diligence of all those involved. We were up against strong competition from entrants across the UK in the large commercial category, which makes our Highly Commended award particularly noteworthy.”

The FeRFA awards celebrate the workmanship, diversity, innovation and commitment to quality and training shown by its 130-plus members. This year’s winners were announced at a ceremony in Nottingham, which also commemorated FeRFA’s 50th year as the ‘voice of the resin industry’.

For the ITV studio floor refurbishment, Zircon installed Sikafloor® MultiDur ES-24 ECF across a 788m2 surface area. A proven system for TV studio/media projects on account of its protective, electrostatic conductive self-smoothing properties, Sikafloor® MultiDur ES-24 ECF ensured the new surface achieved the required floor tolerance of +/- 1mm over a 3-metre straight edge, which is a requirement for HD and the new 4K filming.

Pete at Sika added: “Sika’s culture of innovation also deserves credit for this latest FeRFA award. It means we have a product-based solution to suit a range of complex flooring requirements.”
