ELECOFLOOR®S SPEEDY INSTALLATION
The speed of installation and acoustic properties of Stramit’s ElecoFloor® has recently been utilised in the construction of the West Park Development, Manchester. Renaker Build, with expertise in construction projects of varying complexity and value, specified and installed ElecoFloor® at the £12M residential project. The West Park development consists of the build of two apartment blocks each containing 85 individual units.
Appointed as the main flooring product throughout the development, ElecoFloor® panels provide the necessary sound insulation for separating floors, without the need to source all the required layers for a built up system. This results in a reduction in thickness above the joist being of 50% or more. The medium weight overlay board, designed for concrete and timber floors, is an acoustic flooring system comprising of moisture resistant chipboard and MDF composite bonded boards, with a resilient central layer and a durable polyester felt backing. This construction helps improve impact and airborne noise.
Stramit® Panel Products, a trusted partner in leading partition systems in the United Kingdom for over 50 years, understands the importance of a quick installation process and has utilised its expertise in manufacturing laminated and pre-decorated partitioning panels to develop the ElecoFloor® system. With its fast installation time, Elecofloor® can be fitted up to half the time it takes to install a batten system. Once in place, the panels take up a third of the overall thickness, delivering material savings on brick courses, whilst additionally significantly reducing the overall height of the building.
Renaker, which awarded ElecoFloor® the contract, provided a clear schedule for the quick turnaround required. Phased over a 24-month period to meet the client’s sales requirements, Stramit® guaranteed the delivery of the ElecoFloorâ system could meet the flexible schedule Renaker needed to work within.
