Industrial Flooring Installation

Company News

Jarden Plastic Solutions (JPS) who operate from a 5,500 square metre site in Christchurch, Dorset, have selected Stonhard UK to supply and install industrial flooring during the expansion of their manufacturing facility.

 

JPS is a part of United States-based Newell Brands, a $16 billion global consumer goods corporation. Its British company specialises in precision injection moulding and the production of healthcare and medical products. The refurbishment of the old warehouse started in early 2016 and consisted of two areas; the Clean Room with adjoining rooms and a Reception Area which cover just over 900 square metres and a new 960 square metre Warehouse.

 

Keith Tanner, Engineering Manager for Process Solutions, comments: “As our business has been steadily growing and to give our Blue Chip customers the added benefit of continuity, it became obvious that we needed to invest in a new Warehouse and a secondary Clean Room on top of our existing Class 8 Clean Room. The floors in our new Clean Room needed to be without any crevices, adhering to medical standards. Whilst we wanted to achieve a smooth finish, it was just as important to ensure that our employees working on-site will be safe and the floor will not be slippery. In the Warehouse, on the other hand, we needed a coarser, hardwearing surface that would withstand regular forklift traffic,” explains Mr Tanner.

 

Steve Lyon, Stonhard UK’s Contracts Manager, worked with JPS to find the right flooring solution for their different environments. Steve comments: “Following our initial flooring assessment, we recommended Stonshield HRI, a textured, ultra-slip-resistant and easy to clean flooring system for the Clean Room. It can be installed in less than two days and comes in a range of colours and textures. For the Warehouse, Stonhard’s Stonclad GS fitted the bill perfectly. It’s an epoxy floor coating that offers great protection for heavy-duty environments; it also resists impact and abrasion, handles heavy loads and withstands thermal stresses really well.”

 

Stonhard’s five-man crew started the work at the site at the beginning of December 2016 and the installation took just over 11 days. Keith Tanner concludes: “Stonhard’s people were very accommodating. The attention to detail, from cutting up the joints to dealing with temperature variations at the site, was outstanding.  An excellent job indeed.”

 

Jarden Plastic Solutions uses Stonhard’s flooring systems in all facilities around the world.
