With over 40 years experience and over 130 studio installations across the UK and in Ireland, it is more than likely that you have seen our television studio floors in use on BBC, ITV, Sky, BT Sport, IMG Media, Pinewood, Sky and YouTube.
We are proud of our reputation in the broadcasting industry and of being able to meet the high standard demanded for camera tracking.
Since our first resin studio floor installation in the 1970’s, we’ve become known as the go-to company for television and broadcasting floors in the UK. This is due to our purposely designed Elgood Television Studio Floor System and retaining an expert in-house team specifically trained in the installation of Television Studio Floors.
Our studio floors are laid to tolerances tolerances surpassing SR1. SR1 is not suitable for a television studio floor. The flatness of the floor and a uniform finish are critical to camera tracking. Both have a huge impact on how much can be produced in a days filming. Please see www.televisionstudiofloors.co.uk
The Elgood Studio Floor System has been adopted by an unprecedented 25+ companies and is widely in service today throughout broadcasting.
THE ELGOOD STUDIO FLOOR SYSTEM
- Designed, manufactured and installed by Elgood Industrial Ltd.
- The design, materials and workmanship are guaranteed for 10 years.
- Static and dynamic camera pedestal performance guaranteed.
The studio floor should be installed as part of the technical fit out of the studios.
We are usually directly employed by the client.
The floor installation requires clean, controlled conditions, and is a clean process in itself.
We do not undertake studio floor installations as a subcontractor to a main contractor.
SUB FLOOR REQUIREMENTS
The Elgood Studio floor is 30mm thick and laid directly to the structural concrete slab.
The concrete slab should be placed at a datum of minus 30mm to the required finished floor level.
The concrete should be laid to a tolerance of +/- 6mm of the minus 30mm datum.
The concrete should have a power floated finish, as if it were to be the finished floor.
The slab design should avoid the use of expansion joints, as these cannot be taken through the studio floor surface.
Approximately 3 weeks for each studio.
Elgood are pleased to advise their clients on matters relating to the studio flooring at the design stages and throughout the building construction, based on our experience of many similar projects over the last 40 years.
There are numerous examples at the BBC, The London Studios, Pinewood where the System is still providing good service after 10, 15 and 20 years.
The combination of minimal maintenance, and an extended working life keeps running costs and disruption to a minimum.
Elgood provide ongoing advice on the use of studio floor paints and peelable products. We have also developed some practical coating systems for fast turn-around studios designed to avoid routine washing and associated disposal problems.
Providing studio floors to all the main broadcasters means that we have accumulated a vast amount of experience that enables us to offer practical and bespoke solutions to common problems.
