WHO IS COMING TO DINNER? NO PRESSURE!
It really is quite a dilemma. Whilst our old friend Dumbo may smash a few plates and knock over the furniture and generally be quite difficult to accommodate he won’t actually mark your newly installed floor.
Of course, he may be quite a force in his own right but with force defined as pressure over area, he actually exerts less pressure on your new floor than the seemingly harmless stiletto shoe. A 6000lb elephant walks on two feet at a time, with each foot measuring approximately 40 square inch each so the force exerted is only 75psi. Maybe just be careful where you ask him to sit down as that’s an entirely different matter!
Ladies, please take a seat - rather quickly and please don’t walk around too much on my new floor and please don’t lean back on your heels whatever you do.
Let’s say each lady weighs a modest 100lb but exerts that moderately light force on a tiny area of approximately 1/16th of a square inch well that’s 1500psi versus 75psi. Looks like Dumbo wins. Now perhaps you can appreciate just how much pressure is under that foot.
Given the facts who would you invite?
The lesson here is think and think again, who is really coming to dinner? What is actually going to happen on the floor that you are specifying.
Once the installation is complete and the project painstakingly finished to perfection, who will walk in, what will they do and what will they have on their feet.
We can help you design your floor with user purpose in mind and you won’t go wrong. Ask us how before it is too late.
Let’s all stand back and relax when the pressure is on!
