EFS Installs Carpet Fit for a Palace

EFS Installs Carpet Fit for a Palace

Posted: Tue, 03 Sep 2019 12:55

EFS Europe Ltd rolled into Alexandra Palace's Panorama Room last week to install carpet into this prestigious venue. The contemporary structure strategically positioned within the elegant Victorian Facade next to the Great hall is used for a wide variety of events. The permanent marquee plays host as a VIP suite and is used for Christmas parties and many corporate functions.

EFS was commissioned by Alexandra Palace to install 1000sqm of its gel backed Club Carpet in anthracite grey into the Panorama Room. The hard-wearing carpet was last installed by EFS 5 years ago – an accolade to the carpet's durability, especially given the hundreds of annual events that are staged at the venue, with thousands to revellers punishing the flooring.

The installation took 3 of EFS's team 3 days to complete.

EFS's Managing Director, Jeremy Simpson said: "We have been working with Ally Pally for quite some time now, installing the carpet each year for the World Darts. We were delighted to be asked again to re-carpet the Panorama Room, the team at EFS work to a really high standard, which bears testament to us being invited back again."

Flooring it at Leeds & Reading Festivals

Flooring it at Leeds & Reading Festivals

Posted: Tue, 27 Aug 2019 11:21

EFS Europe returned to the Leeds & Reading Festivals for the fourth time this year to once again install temporary flooring to the artist and backstage areas.

Headlining the iconic festivals this year were the Foo Fighters, Bastille, 1975, the Blossoms and Twenty One Pilots.

The events took place from Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th August. EFS's team installed the flooring the week prior to the event, with the uplift taking place the day after the festivals finished.Over 1,000m2 of Temp-A-Path was used to create safe pedestrian access for artists and production staff. The product was deployed around the village of portakabins that are used as dressing rooms, and also to create clear access from those areas to the main stage.In addition, the Reading site used a further 100m2 of Temp-A-Path in and around the female toilet areas. EFS also supplied and installed the carpets within all of the artist dressing rooms.

Both festivals have increased the use of EFS Europe's plastic, interlocking flooring in the last four years, with the product's easy installation by hand giving it the ability to be retrospectively installed once all of the portakabins have been located in position.

Jeremy Simpson, EFS's Managing Director said: '"We were delighted be invited to work with Festival Republic again and we're really proud of how well the products have performed at both sites. Both the Reading and Leeds Festivals are significant parts of the British summer festival season and to play a part in them is a great marker for our company."

EFS create festival themed wedding

EFS create festival themed wedding

Posted: Sat, 26 Aug 2017 11:02

EFS Europe was delighted to help with a wedding with a difference and make the great outdoors accessible for even ladies in heels! The Richardson family contacted us with a little problem… How to convert an arable field into a suitable venue for a series of teepees and their 200 plus guests? After the cornfield was harvested, and with just a week before the wedding, concerns were raised over the condition of the ground, which is when EFS stepped in! An access road was required to the teepees for the wedding guests, catering outlets, generators and toilet blocks. EFS installed their Hex Road, a heavy duty roadway ideal for instant access and car parking at events.

The second part of the brief was to provide a safe, pedestrian friendly, aesthetically pleasing area in front of the teepees for a designated guest area. After being rolled by the farmer, the field was partially covered with 30m x 10m of Temp-A-Path to the front of the teepees and catering outlets. Following installation of the Temp-A-Path, the client decided they wanted the area to resemble an English country garden lawn; EFS then laid their Gadsby 33m pile height Astroturf on top of the Temp-A-Path for a stunning finish. The client then sold on the Astroturf after the event – perfect recycling!
