The sub-floor is a raised access floor. This was covered with two layers of 18mm plywood which were glued and screwed together to form a sold flat base. Screws and joints were filled and smoothed.
Elgood Flooring installed the floors in Studios A,B and C at BBC Scotland over 15 years ago. When BBC Scotland were looking to convert a room into another broadcasting studio, we were approached by their contractor Vertech Projects.
The Plywood was prepared by sanding and then sealed with our penetrating solvent free Epoxy priming coat.
The Elgood Studio Floor System has been proven over 30 years with more than 130 studio installations.
Elgood Flooring managed the project with their SMSTS and SSSTS qualified management.
The floor is perfect for Multi Camera and Robotic Camera use.
Anti static finish as standard to eliminate nuisance static electricity that would otherwise interfere with camera use.
Elgood Flooring project managed and installed.
Having installed the floors in Studios C and then B and A in 2006 and 2007 respectively, we were delighted to be invited back to BBC Scotland to install our Elgood Universal Television Studio Floor Operating Surface in their new Riverside Studio.
Our floors in Studios A, B and C continue to perform well after 11+ years of use.
BBC Scotland were keen to have the same flooring in their converted studio to ensure smooth camera tracking and retain the facility to use semi permanent studio paints for different sets as and when necessary.
A one metre grid was formed on the floor with the aim being to ease the design and construction of sets and to save time when switching sets.
