School bowled over with new Taraflex sports hall

When Collegiate School in Bristol wanted to refurbish their main sports hall, together with revamping the stairs, showers and changing rooms they would specify a mix of high-quality flooring from international flooring specialist Gerflor.

The specification would include Gerflor’s Olympic pedigree Taraflex Performance vinyl sports flooring and their world class Tarasafe Ultra and Tarasafe Ultra H20 safety flooring.

Simon Crossman Director of Facilities, Collegiate said: “We wanted a bright multi-sport surface and a surface which could cope with ad-hoc school activities such as assemblies, prizegiving’s and summer/leavers balls.

“Therefore, the floor had to be resilient, take the point loading of a high heel or a chair and not dent or deform in any way which could affect the playing surface.

“Another requirement was to have an indoor cricket area which didn’t involve laying additional mats. The Taraflex indoor sports solution delivers this specification in spades.”

The installation of the Gerflor products would be the responsibility of Bristol-based Knighton Contracts. Lee Knighton, Director commented: “We had absolutely no problems laying down the Gerflor Taraflex and Tarasafe products and everybody seemed extremely delighted with the final finish of the new flooring installed.”

Chris Pursey, Gerflor Area Sales Manager, Southwest & Channel Islands commented, “The client is incredibly happy with the final finish and performance of their new Taraflex sports floor, particularly as the hall is used regularly for indoor cricket.

“It’s been a rewarding project to be involved in, as we were able to supply the total flooring solutions they were seeking.”
