Electronics & Electrical
The extent and demand for resin floors in electronics facilities is much greater than many of us would initially think, and there are a huge number of businesses involved in electronics and electrical components all around the UK. This includes building premises and facilities in every region and almost every City and Town. However this is not perhaps so surprising when you consider that today, almost every area and aspect of our lives from all around our homes, to where we work, rest, and play, is filled with electronic appliances and equipment or fittings. These include the huge number of domestic appliances from toasters to washing machines, our TV’s, satellite, and music players, then our interior lighting, heating, and cooling systems, plus our telecoms and wi-fi as well as increasingly more of our cordless tools for DIY and gardening – drills to mowers and trimmers etc. We are surrounded by electronics and electrical systems in every area of our homes – Scary in fact, the incredible number of electric and electronic devices that are controlling our lives when you look around!
Leaving home we get into our cars that are loaded with electronics and electronic components, even if not actually electric vehicles yet! The same is true of our public transport network and systems, from buses and trams, trains, and metros, to ferryboats and aircraft, everything is either electronic or loaded with electronics and electrical systems, as are the networks and connecting hubs - the stations, docks and airports. When we go to work the same thing applies, some professions and trades more than others, but every job you can think of has a high reliance on using some form of electronics – even nowadays in farming and construction works, not to mention manufacturing and assembly plants, as well as in hospitals and medical facilities. After work, the same applies in almost all leisure facilities, even when running in the woods it is likely we have an Mp3 music player and a fitness watch recording our efforts for posterity! It is equally the same for our children and all types of students, with electronics dominating our educational system and fully integrated throughout school, college and university buildings and facilities from Kindergarten to post-graduate studies.
The result of this is a huge demand for modern and secure facilities and premises to develop, produce and assemble, pack, ship and display new electronic devices and electrical equipment, with additional facilities to service, repair and even to eventually recycle all these electronics and electrical appliances, devices, and equipment. The sheer volume and nature of all these different materials necessitates many different specialist manufacturing and service facilities, including huge plants owned by household names e.g. from Apple to British Aerospace, from Dyson to Whirlpool and Hoover, Honda to Jaguar and Nissan, LG to Samsung and Panasonic, Bosch to Black & Decker, Schneider to Honeywell – As well as the countless smaller companies that most of us have never heard of, but which are part of this global industry, and with facilities in the UK. These can be to produce, service, repair and store their electronic equipment and for this purpose, all these premises need a good quality floor and floor finish, which must be non-dusting, provide a watertight, easily cleaned surface, which is resistant to impact and abrasion as well as any chemicals used in their processes. Whatever their specific requirements, NCC can always provide specialist and often cost-saving advice, to successfully select, specify and install resin floors that can meet all the requirements for all of the electronics world.
There are also some specialist flooring demands in some areas of the electronic industry which include high levels of chemical resistance in production process areas that need to use strong acids and solvents, as well as cleanroom conditions with CRM materials for low emissions and particle contaminants, plus areas for ESD and anti-static resin flooring to avoid damage to sensitive equipment, and to control stray electrical discharges to earth and not the equipment.
In addition, like in every industry there is also the ‘heavy end’ where packaged and palleted goods are loaded and unloaded and where highly impact and mechanical abrasion resistant floor finishes are necessary. Whatever the floor finish you need, resin flooring from NCC will solve the problem for both new and maintenance works.
