Cameras Rolling on Super Flat Studio Project

Sika ensured there were no dramas during the installation of a super flat anti-static flooring system at ITV Studios in Leeds. For their latest TV studio, due to be used to shoot scenes for the nation’s favourite countryside-based soap opera Emmerdale, ITV required a high-spec flooring solution that would work in harmony with their HD cameras. This meant that the floor not only had to be completely flat but also boast exceptional anti-static qualities. Contractors Zircon Flooring was selected to carry out the installation, a task further complicated by the live nature of the ITV Studios site, which restricted their movement, storage and access when filming was taking place. To achieve the super flat finish, Zircon Flooring painstakingly installed more than 2,100 plugs and screws in the floor, achieving a tolerance of just +/- 1mm over a two-metre straight edge, this exceptional attention to detail meant that they exceeded the requirement of the British Standard SR1 floor tolerance, which is +/- 3mm over the same distance.
