High Performance Resin Floors, Hygienic Walls & Ceilings
UK WIDE SERVICE - ASSURED PERFORMANCE - COMPETITIVELY PRICED
Firstly, thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
There are many out there who claim to be an expert, but in many cases, their experience can turn out to be quite limited, so with this in mind I wanted to introduce myself to provide a clear insight to our level of expertise at BIF and to hopefully explain why our company could be a very good fit for your next project.
I hope the following helps to identify why we are trusted to deliver successful installations on time, every time.
A Quick Note About Covid19...
Like all reputable businesses, we take managing the threat of Covid-19 extremely seriously. Like so many others, we ceased operations when asked to do so and resumed only once we were allowed to do so.
In the weeks during Lockdown to protect our customers, our staff and the general public, we implemented a number of changes to the way we work;
Our Offices are manned, but social distancing measures are in place. We've introduced sanitiser stations, screening & to minimise risk further, every employee is temperature checked each morning before starting work. We're also Teams Enabled, allowing non-contact meetings between the team and our customers.
Our Site Teams are now fully operational, with Sanitiser Stations on every vehicle and we have isolated travel arrangements in place. Again, each member of the site team is temperature checked every day before work starts.
We have Sanitiser Stations on site and we comply fully with our customer's specific Covid requirements.
A copy of our Covid Risk Assessment is available on request and we are happy to discuss arrangements we have in place in detail, at any time.
BIF Services have been a resin flooring specialist for 45 years.
Originally run as a partnership, the company incorporated to become BIF Services Limited in 1998 and we continued to provide resin flooring systems, but we also added hygienic wall cladding systems 20 years ago to introduce a unique floor, wall & ceiling package.
We've worked in all types of industries but Food Process & Engineering Sectors play a significant role. With a growing number of larger and more complex projects, our expertise and ability to manage and control a project provides added reassurance that the quality remains high, that work is completed safely and the project will complete on time. We work to support our customers, often working to allow production to continue, or limit the disruption by careful planning.
The company is also regularly employed directly by the NHS & other Government agencies to complete works in the public sector, where our knowledge and the materials at our fingertips have proved to be very successful in secure accommodation or other areas needing safety, hygiene or durability.
We regularly complete Seclusion Rooms & Secure Living Accommodation in Mental Healthcare Hospitals but we've also been very successful in providing durable answers in Police Custody Suites & also in HMP sites across the UK.
One of the most important aspects of involving us is our ability to help plan and oversee a project. We've completed complex industrial refurbishments and our Management Team continue to support customers throughout by keeping our work on track and checking quality as work progresses.
With defective finishes removed, a 75mm thk fibre screed & 10mm PU Screed is installed in a food factory. Photographed here during installation. Over 750m2 of floor was completed over 6 phases, with factory production unhalted.
We were also one of the first contractors to successfully bring industrial resin floor finishes into new commercial or public spaces and we have a great portfolio of large installations in schools and colleges, corporate showrooms & other areas where aesthetics are as important as the durability these systems bring.
Our Quartz Resins Systems have been used very successfully in Schools, Colleges, Hospitals & other public buildings.
We've become very well known for providing safe surfacing in secure accommodation areas. We provide seamless surfacing to Mental Healthcare Hospitals, where Seclusion Rooms need safe surfaces for the protection of patients who may self harm. We also have an excellent reputation for works within the custodial sector and have completed 5 major Custodial Suites, with more planned.
Getting the detail right is critical in secure environments. BIF have completed 5 major Police HQ Custody projects over recent years, with 2 further projects planned.
So, we have a very wide spread of experience. Each sector is very demanding and each needs it's operations back to normal without delay. Work completed also needs to be free of defects and we're able to achieve high quality because we are structured, organised and we employ the right people.
The rate of failure in the resin floor industry is quite high. This is due to a number of factors but at the top of the list is understanding how resin floor systems work in use.
Not understanding what will cause a problem once a resin system has been applied is the possibly the greatest reason for failure. This occurs by either getting the job done as quickly & as cheaply as possible or for the installer failing to understand the limitations of each type of resin system being applied.
True expertise comes from those who can 'engineer-in' effective repairs to surfaces before a resin finish is applied. Simply covering over cracks with resin doesn't work and our advice is always to find a reputable contractor who will spend a little more time avoiding future issues by putting things right before laying a new surface.
We've taken a further step by developing a number of proven unique techniques for repairs. We also have a system where we can build in particular strengths needed for a new resin finish. By tailoring the flooring system, we reduce costs for the customer and provide a finish to meet their needs more precisely.
Over a Decade of doing things differently
In 2008 we decided to stop following what everyone else was doing and find new ways of doing things.
We started importing new types of systems from Switzerland & Germany and learned new techniques from European contractors, who approached their work very differently to specialists in the UK. In the UK, manufacturers have set systems which contractors follow, but in Europe, specialist contractors formulate their own systems using reputable manufacturer supplied raw materials and the two parties develop unique systems together. The reputation of the contractor is paramount to being awarded work, not the reputation of the manufacturer, who in theory will sell to anyone.
Today we provide a wide range of proven systems which go further in answering the needs of our customers than the standard UK based resin systems, to give improved performance at often a lower cost.
By doing things differently, we provide a denser resin finish, which improves wear, gives improved resistance to impact and how easily the surface cleans. Our techniques also provide surfaces which are stronger, have greater stability, improved flexibility where needed and have a more consistent surface profile.
Warm & cushioned underfoot, we cast a fibre reinforced underfloor heated screed and applied a cushioned, flexible Polyurethane floor finish in this very high specification domestic property.
Our business is all about our people. How we perform, how we behave and how accountable we all are to our customers, provides focus to us all; making sure that we do a great job.
How we perform for our customers builds trust and as most of our business comes from continued customer contact, so achieving what the customer expects is so important to us.
In an industry where almost every other competitor hires in subcontract labour to complete their work, we directly employ our installation teams. By working closely with them and by supporting them, we're able to achieve consistent high quality.
Our customer's own reviews on how our team have performed, show us that we continue to meet their expectation; this is reviewed with the help of our Customer Sign Off, which provides plenty of opportunity for constructive comments to be raised (customers can complete this online from this website).
The photograph above shows how we took an old, heavily patched up and uneven 80 year old concrete floor to become a durable working surface. Our team completed concrete repairs to stabilise the slab, removed level undulation using our fibre bonded screed, before finishing the floor with an epoxy self flowing screed.
Collaborative working eases problems, so we help you cost, plan and implement a project, no matter how complex a project may be.
On completion we continue our support and will remain on hand to promptly attend to any defects should they arise.
Our Assurance of Performance details how the workmanship of our team and performance of material are covered , should issues develop later and where something does go wrong with work we've completed (and where this due to something we have caused), we'll put it right.
The following assurances are provided;
Resin Floor Coatings - 12 months
Resin Floor Screeds- 5 years
Hygienic Wall Cladding - 10 years
Flooring projects can be problematic.
Resin flooring projects can be more problematic because they rely even more on how elements on site are handled and how projects are specified.
BIF have an enviable reputation for getting the detail right and successfully help our customers receive the standard of installation expected.
We have very few site issues developing, but even these are corrected promptly for our customers, as part of our after sales service.
If you would like to find out more out how we can support a project you're working on, please do get in touch and we'll be very pleased to help.
