Gerflor to the rescue

Flood-damaged Torquay Boys Grammar School needed a flooring solution fast

When Torquay Boys Grammar School urgently needed to replace their existing wooden floor in their main hall due to flooding, they turned to international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply over 600m2 of their world-renowned Taraflex® Performance vinyl sports flooring.

Achieving a first-class installation that would be on budget, on time and as importantly, meet the stringent requirements that the school would insist on, was a challenge well-met by Plymouth-based Roberts Flooring.

We settled on mint green as the optimum colour as it would really complement the sports line markings that were added to the new floor

Dave Moran, managing director of Roberts Flooring, said: “The school had previously had an unfortunate flooding incident which caused their current timber sprung sports floor to swell and become defective.”

On the new specification, Moran said: “We approached Gerflor to help propose a suitable solution and it was decided that their Taraflex Performance 9mm-thick sports flooring system would be the best answer due to its versatile range of applications as it was suitable for a sporting and educational environment.

“We settled on mint green as the optimum colour as it would really complement the sports line markings that were added to the new floor.”
