Having successfully installed 4 studio floors for IMG in 2013 we were selected at short notice by IMG Media to install the floor which was to be used by their client The Discovery Channel.
Discovery chose the Elgood Universal Television Studio Floor, designed, manufactured and installed entirely by Elgood Flooring.
The existing floor was a rough finished concrete slab with a variation of 28 mm between the lowest and the highest points. The finished floor had a thickness of approximately 35-40mm to correct this deviation and provide a super flat floor.
Red oxide paint was removed using vacuum contained diamond grinding.
The floor provides optimum camera pedestal performance and is perfect for Multi Camera use. A camera can be used anywhere on the floor making it ideal for multiple sets.
The floor is free of undulations, inclines and surface irregularities. These details are of no consequence on most floors, but totally unacceptable in a modern HD television studio.
Tough wearing surface designed to withstand the range of use expected of a modern HD studio facility.
IMG Media’s new facility at 4 Longwalk Stockley Park.
