Valeo Vision Systems turned to Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) to supply and install a new anti-static flooring system in their headquarter production facility in Tuam, Co Galway.
Valeo Vision Systems manufacture front, top, rear and side view Automotive cameras and associated ECUs for a variety of OEM manufacturers such as BMW, Jaguar/Land Rover, Volvo, Ford, Nissan and VAG Group (VW, Audi). The manufacturer engaged AFS to help remedy an unlevel and water logged new concrete floor installation from another contractor.
AFS began the first phase of the project (an area of 520m2) by aggressively preparing the new concrete substrate using their own in-house specialised surface preparation equipment – removing 5mm from the surface via vacuum grinding and blasting.
With the concrete floor being fresh, due to a fast track project, AFS helped remedy its waterproofing properties by installing 2 coats of MC Building Chemicals MC DUR1101 Damp Proof Membrane (DPM). Due to the unlevel concrete finish, a scratch coat was then applied to help level the floor and make it more suitable for a manufacturing environment.
To help aid the non-static production requirements, AFS installed an anti static MC DUR GLW floor system over the 520m2 area. Earthing points and copper spray where then applied (to further improve the floor’s anti-static properties) followed by a 2mm MC Dur 1800AS system to help complete a high profile finish.
