How manufacturers are future-proofing floors

Future-proofing floors is about ensuring that the floor continues to deliver the same aesthetic and practical benefits that it provided the day it was installed for many years. While a floor that can withstand a large volume of traffic is the baseline requirement, it isn’t the only measure of success.

iTe Products has an eye on the future in every product they manufacture, every cement that is blended and every new business relationship that is forged. The company takes many steps to predict and prepare for the needs of its clients, starting with an extensive R&D programme.

Materials testing is a key part of the company’s blending process: they use nothing but the finest ingredients, combined in precise ratios for optimum and sustainable performance.

To ensure the lasting success of flooring projects, the company trains installers in the correct use of products. Not only does this training have economic and operational benefits to the end-user and client, it also minimises flooring failures that result in a floor having to be repaired or replaced in locations with high footfall.

Future-proofing is about more than just ensuring that their products contribute to flooring installations that endure. It’s also about not detracting from the quality of the future that they bequeath to the next generation. That means adopting sustainable business practices today for a better tomorrow for everyone – whether they walk across one of iTe Products’ floors or not.

Taking a longer-term view has been essential to iTe Products’ success to date and has included upskilling their team members, negotiating longer supplier contracts and developing innovative products designed to withstand not only the challenges we know about today, but also the ones we can only imagine for tomorrow.
