Task

Repairing of entrance matting at doorway and security scanner surrounds the Manchester United Club Shop.

Works

On the 23rd of December 2015, we were contacted by Manchester United Football Club to undertake a program of repair to the entrance matting in the Megastore club shop. It was only the outer edge, the fist part of the entrance matting, that was causing the problem so we had to source the same product in order to complete the job with no visible difference to the existing installation.

Although we were committed and mobilised, the festive holiday period meant we were enable to source the materials required. The work was planned for Monday 5th January before a match on the Tuesday evening. An induction was carried out 2 days prior to work commencing in order to authenticate us to fulfil our tasks.

The entrance matting previously installed had become a trip hazard due to the tiles rising higher than the entrance doorway level. With the resulting overhang causing a health and safety hazard, a trip was inevitable, thus the task became critical.

To rectify the problem, in a twenty-four-hour window we pulled back the carpet tiles, re-cutting them at the required angles and trimming them off with flush and durable, new-to-market ramp edging provided by Milliken.

Another task performed whilst on site was re-fitting the same matting previously installed around the shops security units located at the entrance. Unfortunately, the matting had receded somewhat and not only had this become a hazard, it was unsightly and looking poorly finished.

Precision and attention to detail was a key factor during our time on this task. The design of the building meant that the doorways were angled quite significantly. Trim work and cutting was particularly tricky and sensitive for both the doorway edging and the base profile of security units.

The products used for this project included:-

  • Milleken Obex Matting
  • Flexible Ramp Edge

Result

As you can see from the photographs, the entrance to the shop is impressive. Although this was a rather technical and tricky job, we are extremely pleased with the results. Our intricate and accurate work on this site possibly wont be noticed to the majority of shop visitors and this is what we like to hear because it means that we have potentially helped avoid an accident as well as improving the area aesthetically.
