When the floor of the multi-functional sports hall at Holly Lodge Girls’ College in Liverpool, Merseyside, became worn, the search for a new surface quickly led to the natural choice of Gerflor for a premium solution offering the users at the facility optimum comfort, safety and performance. After considering the range of products available, Taraflex™ Evolution was selected as the most appropriate and versatile for the huge range of sports played within the hall.

Holly Lodge caters for over 1,200 students aged between 11–19 years. The four-court badminton hall is used by the students and let out to other organisations in the evenings and at weekends. Consequently, the demands on the floor are huge with the sports played ranging from five-a-side football and badminton to cricket and trampolining.

Gerflor visited the college and worked through the various flooring options with staff to ensure the best product was selected. Taraflex™ Evolution was a natural choice, as it is ideal for multi-sports halls whilst providing safety and comfort.

Importantly, it provides a 32% force reduction in accordance with EN 14904 standard for indoor sports floors. It is available in 15 colourways and two wood designs. Although Gerflor regularly puts clients in touch with contractors, the college’s own contractors undertook the installation. The process was relatively easy: the old floor was stripped back to the concrete slab, the surface latexed and the Taraflex™ Evolution laid. Taraflex™ Evolution incorporates a number of innovative features including dynamic double-density CXP (cellular extreme process) foam backing for unparalleled comfort, and D-Max, a multi-layer surface to ensure maximum performance throughout the product’s lifetime.

A glass fibre mesh reinforces the product, contributing outstanding dimensional stability and improved indentation resistance while allowing free floating installation. Triple-action Protecsol® benefits the facility in terms of easy maintenance.

It’s for this very reason that Bolton School in Lancashire would specify Gerflor’s world-renowned Taraflex® sports flooring for their main sports all and their top-performing Tarasafe Ultra for two of the changing rooms.

David Laskey, deputy head of estates at Bolton School, said: “After an extensive consultation period with the heads of boys’ and girls’ sport, which included visits to a number of other schools who have recently had different floor finishes installed, a full tendering process was carried out. Several different flooring types were considered and the decision to use Gerflor was ultimately determined based on the performance and cost comparisons.”

Several different flooring types were considered and the decision to use Gerflor was ultimately determined based on the performance and cost comparisons

Bolton School chose on this occasion to appoint Stockport-based Recreational Coatings. Ross Johns, commercial director of Recreational Coatings commented: “Taraflex® Comfort was specified for their main sports hall because it suited the user and activity type at Bolton School. We had to ensure the sub floor was 100% perfect prior to installation. We have been installing Taraflex® for many years and are used to working with this outstanding product.

The changing rooms at Bolton School would need flooring that could deliver safety and be extremely durable to be able to handle the amount of usage envisaged. The Tarasafe Ultra range from Gerflor was specified. Tarasafe Ultra is a specialist slip-resistant vinyl safety flooring inlaid with mineral crystal particles, as opposed to industry-standard carborundum giving a brighter appearance.

Ross Johns concluded: “Gerflor is our ‘go-to’ supplier for vinyl flooring products, both in sport and gym environments. Gerflor’s products are excellent quality and they provide a great service.”

David Laskey added: “I’m extremely pleased with the final result as it has revitalised the sports hall and provided us with a modern multi-purpose sports complex floor.”

St Columba’s is one of Scotland’s highest-achieving schools, ranked within the top 10 independent schools in Scotland.

The school’s 19th-century building is situated in Kilmacolm, close to Glasgow. It was the need to replace the flooring within its junior school’s multi-purpose hall and two corridors located within the school’s 1970s building extension that has brought the refurbished areas into the 21st century.

Extremely high standards were a priority when carrying out the two flooring renovation projects under the management of St Columba’s newly appointed facilities manager. Alasdair McGregor said: “The hall is an all-round area that is regularly used for activities like assemblies, exams, parents’ evenings and for the younger pupils’ games and gymnastics lessons.

“We therefore needed an equally all-round, multi-purpose flooring to cater for this diversity and to replace the old and unsightly tiles which were in very poor condition. As I had worked with Virginia Harris of Gerflor in a previous appointment, I knew I could rely on both her expertise and the reliability of Gerflor’s products.

“We ascertained that Gerflor’s Taraflex® Multi-Use was the flooring product most suitable for the hall renovation as it combined the aesthetic, hardwearing and safety characteristics we wanted.

“Whereas Gerflor’s Mipolam Elegance vinyl sheet flooring with the best abrasion resistance group T rating and high stain resistance for heavy traffic use was ideal for our busy corridors. We designed the whole assembly hall around the flooring! I’m really delighted with the result and everyone who uses the school comments on it.”

Today, their facilities have expanded to become a premier sporting venue and centre of excellence and are regularly used by the local community including Canterbury Hockey, Tennis, Cricket and Croquet Clubs, together with Canterbury Christ Church University, and a host of local schools, local businesses and members of the public. Their vision of a long-term facility sharing partnership has also enabled them to build a brand new multi-sport indoor centre with thriving junior sections in all their sports, with numbers almost reaching 1,000 children. They currently have almost 2,000 members across their six clubs. The age range of members is spread between three and 90. In truth, there’s something for everyone. Ensuring that the club would have a sports surface that could provide both performance and versatility for a host of activities would be top of their agenda. They would also require a sports surface that could provide both bright colours and wood effects, whilst also delivering a future proof solution. This stringent set of, ‘only the best will do’ specifications would ultimately lead the Polo Farm Sports Club to choose Taraflex® Sport M Performance from international flooring specialist Gerflor. Jayne Scott-Kilvert, manager of Polo Farm Sports Club, commented: “We built our new sports hall back in September 2015 which has rough floor dimensions of 50 x 40m. This was in conjunction with Canterbury Christ Church University who under the terms of the agreement use many of the facilities here during the weekdays. “Our primary aim when specifying the floor was to provide a world class surface for both indoor hockey and cricket. The Taraflex® Sport M Performance floor has now been down for over two years and we are extremely pleased with it. It runs very true for hockey, enabling a very high calibre of match to be played. Our cricketers have been amazed with the surface with both England and Kent players commenting on the perfect bounce. Also, not having to put down mats is a huge bonus for them.” Taraflex® vinyl sports flooring has been used in many international and local sporting events and is available in 17 colours and three wood-effect designs. The Sport M Performance product offers a P2 category shock absorbency 35% to 45%. Taraflex® is recognised for providing durability, safety and comfort without impairing performance. The range also offers greater than 45% force reduction, making it unrivalled in the marketplace in terms of offering comfort for users. Taraflex® meets the EN Standard of 22196 for anti-bacterial activity (E. coli - S. aureus - MRSA) (3) returning >99% levels of growth inhibition. The product is also treated with Protecsol®, which renders polish redundant and is triple action meaning no polish is ever required, it contributes to easy maintenance and is anti-friction burn and slide/grip. Taraflex® has a double density foam backing and with another bonus, it’s environmentally-friendly. Taraflex® Sport M Performance from Gerflor meets the EN 14904 Standard for indoor sports surfaces, and very importantly for the Polo Farm Sports Club due to the important cricketing element of their facility, Taraflex® Sport M Performance is also English Cricket Board (ECB) compliant. The Taraflex® ‘point elastic’ flooring has a higher comfort factor than ‘area elastic’ floors and reduces the risk and severity of injuries. Taraflex® is also available with the Dry-TexTM System which is perfect for new construction or refurbishment projects with damp subfloors. Jayne Scott-Kilvert concluded: “The Gerflor Taraflex® flooring also provides a perfect surface for the numerous other sports that are played there such as netball, handball and football. This is the first time we have used Gerflor flooring and we would certainly recommend it to other sports clubs.”  Contact us for a free site survey.

Work on the brand new £10.8m flagship school Pencoed Primary School has now been completed with the school bell ringing for the first time at start of the autumn term. When pupils walked through the doors it was the first time that the whole primary school has been on one single site since the old school was built in the early 1900s. For more than a century, there were separate infant and junior sections.  When the school needed flooring for this massive new-build project they turned to international flooring specialists Gerflor to deliver a fantastic selection of fit-for-purpose, future-proof solutions.  The installation would fall into the capable hands of Floor Furnishings based in Cardiff.  Nick Jefferies, managing director at Floor Furnishings, commented: “We initially had an enquiry through BAM Construction which was then specified through the architect to us.” The range of specified Gerflor products would be extremely varied and include their award-winning Taralay Impression Control and Taralay Impression Comfort, their Tarasafe Ultra and Ultra H2O complemented by an amount of Mural Calypso shower wall, together with some 300m2 of Taraflex® Multi-Use sports flooring. [caption id="attachment_16588" align="alignnone" width="1000"] With over 70 years’ experience, Gerflor has honed their expertise in safety flooring to produce the highest standards of safety and durability.[/caption] With over 70 years’ experience, Gerflor has honed their expertise in safety flooring to produce the highest standards of safety and durability, coupled to delivering stunning, beautiful designs that are both inspirational and eye-catching. In 2016 Gerflor won the CFJ/CFA Product of the Year category with their Taralay Impression Control safety flooring range.  Jason Burton MCIAT, principal architectural assistant at Bridgend County Borough Council commented: “We have a long-standing working relationship with Gerflor formed over years of specifying and dealing with their products. They have many design options within each range, affording us the opportunity to be as creative as possible. Their pre-sales and specification support are exemplary and after care equally so.” Changing rooms and showering areas in many educational locations can often be wet and slippery environments and that’s where Tarasafe Ultra H2O from Gerflor is the ideal solution. Intended for traditional barefoot spaces where there are continuous wet areas, Tarasafe Ultra H2O also offers a shod solution, providing a perfect blend of flooring applications for those areas where wet flooring conditions can be an issue. Within Gerflor’s other top performing Tarasafe vinyl safety flooring range there are over 80 finishes available to choose from. They are reinforced with a glass fibre grid and are suitable for use in all areas of heavy traffic where slip-resistance, durability and hygienic conditions are required. On specification criteria Nick Jefferies said: “We have used Gerflor products on numerous occasions and try to specify them wherever we can and are always very pleased with the final result.” Commenting further on the project Jason Burton added: “We have used Gerflor many times and were delighted with the outcome. We had numerous discussions with the headteacher, and the colour and finish selections were co-ordinated with a lot of the loose furniture options that the school selected. Overall the result has been very well received.”
