Wharncliffe - IT and Software Solution Specialists

Established in 1981 Wharncliffe provide specialist IT Support and Sage Solutions for businesses across the UK. Wharncliffe is a family owned business whose expertise has grown and evolved over a quarter of a century; making them a reliable and well-informed technology partner.

THE ISSUE

Wharncliffe provides technology consultancy, selection, installation and support services to a wide range of businesses and industries looking for Sage Solutions, CRM, ERP or financial solutions.

Due to their product offering and bespoke software packages the business has grown over the years and as part of an office furniture refurbishment project, to accommodate their growing workforce, Wharncliffe looked to danfloor to provide a long-term flooring solution for their Sheffield based head office.

Not only was look and performance an important part of their decision, but with their technical telephone support team based within the open plan offices an acoustically sound environment was an essential requirement. After consultation with their Area Representative and NU Look Flooring, a local flooring contractor, a decision was made to go with Economix Palette, danfloor’s Tile range made from Aquafil’s ECONYL® yarn which offers a hard wearing, solution dyed nylon carpet tile suitable for busy commercial environments.

THE SOLUTION

Palette Tile is available in 9 trend colours and Wharncliffe opted for a combination of the grey (189) and black (199) to create a patterned design which provides a solid base for their interior design scheme.
The Palette range achieves a Class 33 Heavy Commercial Use Classification making it a durable option for any busy commercial environment. In addition, with the bitumen backing, which is ideal for contract tiles, Palette achieves a 27 dB Acoustic Insulation / Sound impact rating which far exceeds UK Building Regulations and provides an acoustically sound environment for their telephone technical support consultants.

The office looks fantastic and you can see and feel the quality of the Economix Palette tiles which provides an ideal foundation for our busy office

THE OUTCOME

Adrian Exley one of the company Directors was the key decision maker behind the office refurbishment project and product selection, “NU Look Flooring did an excellent job of fitting the product and due to the ease of application it meant that the tight deadlines for the refurbishment were met. The office looks fantastic and you can see and feel the quality of the Economix Palette tiles which provides an ideal foundation for our busy office” states Adrian.

Some of the key product features that appealed to Adrian included:
• The Class 33 – Heavy Commercial Use which provides confidence that the tiles are built to last.
• 27 dB Sound impact rating which provides an ideal working environment for his busy team.
• The ECONYL® 100% Regenerated Nylon Yarn is 100% sustainable and infinitely regenerable and offers
outstanding soil and stain resistance and colour fastness properties.
• The tonal colours available within the range.
