To accommodate its growing UK business, Europe’s Headlam Group has recently completed a major upgrade of its head offices at Coleshill in Birmingham.
The project included new showrooms for its flooring products and a new office block where many of the floorcoverings were installed using over 1000m2 of InstaLay, our self-adhesive acoustic underlay.
InstaLay, which is distributed nationwide by Headlam Group member, Home Foundations, is environmentally friendly, being made from recycled rubber crumb. These green credentials appealed to Headlam, with its commitment to offering and promoting recycled products, and helped to make the installation an environmentally responsible project.
Polyflor dryback vinyl tiles were installed on loose laid InstaLay 30hg in the main corridors and walkways, following minimal sub-floor preparation. InstaLay 50hg was also used on the first floor to install tongue and groove hardwood flooring. InstaLay allowed both floorcoverings to be installed quickly and cleanly, while providing comfortable cushion flooring that will reduce fatigue for the staff.
InstaLay also offers excellent acoustic insulation, achieving 26dB with InstaLay 50hg and 23dB with InstaLay 30hg, ensuring that any impact noise was absorbed to create a quiet working environment in the ground floor offices below.
