Hard-wearing floors for children to play on

Commissioned by Findeisen, the specialist company for textile floor coverings made of needlefelt, the application engineers from Wolff, Uzin and Findeisen worked closely together to prepare the various substrates in the three-storey building. They professionally laid hard-wearing and ideally coordinated floor systems – including using the Uzin pump truck. The finishing touches were coloured needlefelt modules of various shapes and structures. Within 28 days, a newly designed area of approx. 550 m2 was created in close collaboration between everyone working on the building, taking into account the different floor heights and conditions and providing the children with a safe space to play and learn in a colourful environment.
