EDITOR’S VOICE TCF CONTACTS EDITORIAL


Hello and welcome to the May issue of Tomorrow’s Contract Floors,


With holiday season well on the way, this month we shine the spotlight on hotel and leisure installations. We hear from Robert Merry of The Stone Consultants on the key considerations when specifying stone in a hospitality setting. We then take a look at some stunning case studies including an iconic Manchester building where parquet from The Solid Wood Flooring Company was selected to be in keeping with the hotel’s heritage and period features.


And even though we at TCF aren’t jetting off on our hols just yet, we’re getting excited about Clerkenwell Design Week, which takes place in London later this month. If you’re heading to the event, don’t miss our show preview where we take a sneak peek at what to expect from some of the biggest flooring manufacturers taking part.


While design is an important aspect of a floor surface, it’s imperative that a floor can perform well and is safe for its users. In our industrial flooring focus, Flowcrete UK reflects on the dangers that static electricity can pose to sensitive electrical equipment in manufacturing facilities and provides expert advice anti-static flooring.


As well as all of this, we bring you a bumper section on subfloor preparation with expert comment on specifying the correct tools and products to ensure that your finished floor will stand the test of time.


I hope you enjoy the issue. ACCOUNTS
