Leading laminate and engineered wood flooring supplier and installer Eurofloors recently revamped its Knysna showroom using a Bosch GLM50C laser measure. This provides quick and accurate measurements, with photos that can be populated easily onto a PDF document.
Eurofloors owner Stephen Spencer states that the company decided to upgrade its showroom after a change in ownership last year, and to get rid of old outdated stock. “We felt that it was stale and needed to give it some new and renewed energy. We decided to get new stock and visually appealing profile displays, so that customers can see our work and how we do it.”
Established in 1997, Eurofloors specialises in vinyl, laminate, engineered and solid wood flooring for residential and industrial clients. Its showroom is divided into two sections, consisting of the front and back section, each approximately 25 m2. The showroom was upgraded by a four-person team. The upgrade included lifting the old flooring, inspecting the floor for possible leaks or damages, cleaning the subfloor and installing new underlay.
Eurofloors used the Bosch GLM50C laser measure to mark down the area where the profiles would be put in and for the backroom, where the engineered wood is manufactured. Spencer adds: “You just set it from where you want to measure, point the tool in the line you want to measure in, and press a button. Then you take your second measurement of the room and follow the same procedure to obtain the total in square metres.”
Eurofloors also uses the device on a daily basis to measure stock accurately, in order to serve its customers better. “Inaccurate measurements could delay a project deadline, as stock has to be re-ordered and redelivered. This can add extra time to a project, with a major implication for a client with a limited budget and time constraints,” he continues.
Since acquiring the laser measure last year, Spencer points out that there has been a significant improvement in the time spent on a project. “We are now able to get more measuring work done in a day, and do not have to reorder. With a tape measure, it would take us about an hour; ow we can finish the measuring within 30 minutes.”
The Bosch GLM50C laser measure has five measurement modes, including length, area, volume, continuous measurement and indirect length measurements for versatile applications. It is able to integrate with other devices, such as a smartphone or tablet, through a measure and document application. All measurements can be transmitted from site to the office for quotation purposes, thereby saving time and money.
