SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of innovative flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits, recently announced the completion of the installation of its FreeStyle BioLock interlocking flooring tiles at BP’s chemical lab at its Whiting refinery in Indiana. Two projects were initiated and installed by SelecTech distributor Budget Maintenance.

“One of the largest issues labs and similar facilities face in replacing existing flooring is down time. With the interlocking version of our FreeStyle BioLock products, labs typically won’t have much if any down time during installation,” said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc., the makers of FreeStyle commercial flooring tiles. “Our BioLock flooring product also met BP’s other needs for a portable, chemical-resistant tile that would be easy to maintain.”

BP’s Whiting Refinery The refinery was established in 1889 by Standard Oil of Indiana. It is the sixth largest refinery in the US and has a capacity of more than 400,000 barrels per day (64,000 m3/d) of crude oil. Two installations of more than 1,700 square feet of FreeStyle BioLock at the refinery took place in March.

FreeStyle BioLock tiles employ a patented glueless “zipper” interlocking system that enables the flooring to be installed over existing flooring with minimal subfloor preparation. There’s no need for messy, toxic adhesive and down-time is significantly reduced—often times without need to close off an area.

Made with 70 percent recycled materials and 100 percent recyclable, FreeStyle BioLock meets CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.
