During the year we are asked for many different outdoor solutions and most recently this has included a carpet. The Royal Borough of Kensington organises a summer season of operas within Holland Park. Opera Holland Park is a summer Opera Company which produces an annual season of opera performances staged under a temporary canopy in Kensington’s Holland Park. This year’s events feature 5 operas including Puccini’s famous Madame Butterfly as well as a classic film season from The Luna Cinema Company. Each of these summer events attract several thousand visitors to the grandstand and general seating areas. EFS were asked to provide and install a range of carpets for the grandstands, stairs and outdoor decking areas. Recognising the traits of a typical English summer we were able to supply and fit carpets for both the indoor and outdoor areas. We selected our Podium flat velour carpet for over 1,200m² of indoor grandstands, stairways and associated areas. For the tricky part of the outdoor decking area we supplied and laid over 600m² of EFS Club stud backed carpet , This specifically designed product has a built in stud design which allows rainwater to simply drain away providing a constant and comfortable safe flooring. As a new project for EPS, we were delighted to provide assistance and make use of some of our special carpets. With recent English Summers we know that our Club carpet will look good no matter whatever the weather!

EFS Carpets – Creating Extra Income for Leicestershire County Cricket Club

EFS Carpets – Creating Extra Income for Leicestershire County Cricket Club

Alongside every sporting success at the ground, it’s vital to maximise your revenues from every possible on-site opportunity. Leicestershire County Cricket (LCC) recognised this and were keen to add turnover from their already busy match day revenues, asking EFS for assistance. Given the noise restrictions imposed by the City council (marquees on the famous Grace Road ground were out of the question) but as a central location within the city with ample parking and entertainment facilities, LCC were keen to take advantage of this ideal venue for the corporate market. The indoor cricket school provided the ideal solution but due to its importance for the club as a practice area, the specialist cricket flooring needed total protection. EFS recommended Club Gel backed carpet in a bespoke colour to both protect the training surface whilst also providing a warm comfortable surface for the new corporate clients. Given the high footfall, table and chair legs along with stiletto heels, EFS Club Gel Backed carpet protected the indoor flooring and took less than 2 hours to roll out and complete the dramatic transformation. The Club Gel Carpet is now stored away at Leicestershire and ready to roll out for the next big event at Grace Road. Jeremy Simpson – EFS Business Development Manager commented, “Every year our clients ask us how they can make better use of their facilities without damaging their existing flooring”. “Our range of Club carpets provide the perfect solution and have allowed schools, sports halls and sports clubs to make better use of their space and increase their revenues.”
