Printing Works Floor

Orchestra Bristol

A Premium Job for the Premier of Printers 

When Orchestra Bristol contacted TactTiles with their warehouse flooring requirement, their major concerns were a need to source a highly durable surface, which could be quickly installed with the minimum of disruption to their 24 hour operation.

The extension of their machine room needed heavy duty tiles to cope with forklift traffic, as well as improved visual amenity.  The TactTiles contract team were able to complete the installation within two days, and provided dark blue tiles for visual emphasis and extra strong continuous edges to cope with heavy paper rolls entering the facility.

As with all TactTiles, those laid at Orchestra help minimise the circulation of dust and dirt particles and are recyclable; emulating Orchestra’s committed environmental policy and their continuing efforts for a cleaner and more sustainable world.


Heavy Duty Workshop Floor


Military WorkShop

On the right track

TactTiles were called in to solve a big problem for a military workshop in Hertfordshire. 

The customer was looking for a floor which could not only be laid very quickly and with minimal disruption, but could also withstand the weight of tanks driving onto it.

The premises had a very uneven and oily floor which was causing operational and safety problems.  The building was filled with specialist equipment which could not be housed elsewhere, and timescales were very tight.  There simply was not time to vacate the building and carry out a full degreasing of the floor which would have been required with a conventional coating system.

TactTiles durable Premium range of interlocking floor tiles were selected and installed over a weekend.  The equipment was moved to one side of the building whilst the floor was laid and then moved back over to finish the job.  Business was not disrupted and the staff were delighted with their new, clean and comfortable anti-slip surface.

Even the tanks were happy!


Hardworking Tool Centre Floor


AT Toolcentre

A clean sweep at a Tool Sales centre

AT Toolcentre of Banbury were in a real fix when the power floated floor in their recently built unit was ‘sweating’ and giving rise to salt deposits on the surface. This caused a real safety problem in the shop as the floor quickly became sticky and also slippery on wet days. The owner, Mr Neil Munton contacted TactTiles, the flooring specialists to solve this problem.


Neil selected the Piazza range of TactTiles in a smart dark green for this busy trade counter area.  Piazza tiles are made from polypropylene which gives excellent wear characteristics and also easy cleaning.

TactTiles laid the floor during the day, working around customers and staff.  The tiles were laid underneath the display and trade counters without any disruption to the business.  AT Toolcentre are pleased to know that if they ever decided to move premises, they will be able to take their new floor with them.

Neil was so pleased with the project that he emailed John Highnam, TactTiles Sales Director -

"Many thanks to you and your team.  From the very beginning when I first contacted your company, the way my enquiry was dealt with and the way the installation was completed, I cannot fault anything.  We would be very pleased to become a TactTiles Ambassador."
