The Challenge

With 7 million visitors a year, the West Orchards Shopping Centre in Coventry City Centre needed an entrance matting solution they could rely on.

The Solution

Milliken Obex Forma tiles are manufactured in modules allowing any size or shape of mat-well to be ­ fitted with the minimum of waste. Damaged sections of Milliken Forma can be replaced by changing only the individual tiles and not the complete unit as with other systems.

These tiles are is extremely durable and in the various colours available is excellent at concealing and retaining dirt and moisture whilst complimenting the interior design. The tiles have excellent wash and light fastness properties allowing conventional carpet maintenance systems to be used for cleaning and has a 5-year guarantee.

The Results

Andy Talbot, West Orchard Shopping Centre Director, said, “Our operations team selected an interlocking solution from Syncros, combining both the Forma and the new Tergo tiles, to give us future flexibility. When you invest in a traditional matting system you don’t have the ability to change areas of damage or wear. That’s the beauty of this system. If a piece of stubborn chewing gum won’t come off the matting, our maintenance team can simply pop out the offending section and renew it.

Syncros has worked with the Obex® product line since its inception, and has played a key role in the development of the product. They are the largest Obex® distributor in Europe, and have installed the entrance matting system in over 100 shopping centres.
