SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of innovative flooring products from recycled materials, recently completed work on a 75,000 square-foot installation at JFK International Airport in the Queens borough of New York City.
The project consisted of replacing the flooring at the baggage claim of the International Arrivals Terminal with SelecTech’s FreeStyle flooring. Work began in early September and was completed in October.
“There were several reasons we were awarded this job. Most significantly is that our FreeStyle product is an interlocking flooring that is adhesive-free and easy to install. We don’t have to move or remove furniture or machinery. That means the baggage claim has been 100 percent operational during the installation,” said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Incorporated. “When you consider that down time can cost a traditional business up to $1 per square foot per day if you have to shut down to install or replace flooring, the benefits or our products for an airport that is open 24/7 are plentiful.”
In addition to the breakthrough interlocking technology and ease of installation, FreeStyle products are made with a patented blend of recycled plastic that resists moisture and installs easily over a variety of subfloors. This rugged material is perfectly constructed to overcome the rigorous demands of commercial environments like airports.
Backed by a 10-year commercial wear warranty, FreeStyle provides an attractive, functional floor surface for many years to come.
