On March 15th our data team attended The Big Show organised by Alvin Morris where they were given the opportunity to take part in some practical training.
Alvin Morris is a distributor which is able to provide Tarkett flooring which is the EEM appointed flooring manufacturer. Tarkett flooring rates are available to EEM members, just email email@example.com
Senior Data Analyst, Rowena Jones, is pictured below and said “It was a hands on experience where I joined two pieces of flooring together to make a robust and waterproof seal. First I used a tool to groove the seam between the two bits of flooring to be joined, then inserted the weld rod into the welding gun and with a steady pace & pressure applied the weld rod along the groove. The final step was to trim the excess weld with a blade (special tool) to leave a flat seamless join!”
Understanding how flooring is laid and the differences between brands helps the data team to support EEM members with their flooring requirements.
