The Police Federation of England and Wales is a staff association that represents 131,000 police officers, through to the rank of Inspector.
The headquarters of the establishment, based in Leatherhead, Surrey, is a state-of-the-art complex with a large catering facility which was fitted with a safety vinyl floor finish. Over the years the busy kitchen environment had caused the seams to crack and lift and therefore posed a Health and Safety risk.
Through recommendations by others, RESYN was contacted by the Federation to provide a more durable and slip-resistant finish. The company has extensive experience within the commercial catering industry and are well aware of the critical time implications that are imposed on these types of installation.
As a result, a quick-curing MMA resin with a broadcast of aggregate, for enhanced slip resistance, was specified. The company’s experience and expertise ensured that a systematic approach leading up to and throughout the installation was maintained. As part of the package the existing vinyl and associated latex were removed, a process that can become time-consuming if the correct preparation equipment is not used.
Investigations prior to the commencement of the installation ensured that the project could be completed within the agreed timescales. The entire installation, which totalled 119m2, was completed within one weekend and the catering team were ready to resume business as usual on the Monday. The association now have a slip-resistant, durable floor that can complement its high-standard facilities.
Paul Everett, Facilities Supervisor comments, “From my initial first enquiry through to the completion of the work and the subsequent customer satisfaction call, I found RESYN to be helpful, knowledgeable and reliable with a professional approach that is above the norm and refreshing to come across. This is a company that has been around for some time and has grown while still retaining the personal approach of a family-run business. The MD and founder of the company came to see me and I was impressed with his care and commitment that the product was the most suitable and that the timescale would be adhered to. The work was started and completed as scheduled with no delays or overrun even though when removing the existing flooring there was found to be issues with the screed that resulted in additional unforeseen remedial work. I would have no hesitation in recommending RESYN to any prospective clients.”
