TV 3 Dublin

As an integral part of the first upgrade of Studio 1 in 18 years, TV3 chose Elgood Flooring to install our Universal Television Studio Floor Finish.

With some minor improvements, the sub-floor was suitably level for us to be able to offer our 6mm operating surface.

The Elgood Universal Television Studio Floor Operating Surface was laid to a thickness of 6 mm.

The floor was prepared using vacuum contained diamond grinding to remove the paint and provide a clean surface.

It was critical to keep downtime to the minimum with TV3 keen to return Studio 1 to use as soon as possible.

Background: TV3 are upgrading their facilities with Studio 1 set to become their first full high definition studio. This presented them with their first opportunity in 18 years to improve and refurbish their floor.

TV3 had a sub-floor that had been laid suitably level for us to be able to offer our 6mm operating surface as an economical alternative to the full Elgood Universal Television Studio Floor.
