A new flooring challenge

Choosing a flooring solution can be a huge challenge

In association with

Specifying flooring for the David Lloyd Leisure, a brand that has played a significant role in increasing the nation’s awareness of how important fitness is to our overall health, was no small feat. Four distinct areas within the business would need different flooring solutions and DLL turned to international flooring specialists Gerflor to supply a UK-wide solution for four very specific member areas within the business.

One of the specific member areas included the kid’s area at the clubs. This needed to sustain some tough treatment from the children as they enjoyed a vast array of sporting activities as well as arts and craft sessions. Gerflor took the best-selling designs from Taralay Impression, Taralay Uni and Nera Contract wood to combine them into one high-performance, hard-wearing range. Taralay Impression was chosen for its R10 slip performance and acoustic insulation of up to 19dB. With a Group T wear rating, low maintenance, low-overall lifetime costs and is 100 per cent recyclability. It was an ideal robust and reliable flooring solution for DLL.

A new flooring product for their group exercise areas within the clubs was also required and again Gerflor were able to supply the perfect product - Taraflex™, a product that has been used in every summer Olympics since 1976.

A David Lloyd Leisure spokesperson commented:

The range and quality of material which Gerflor provided enabled us to effectively deliver our design concept whilst guaranteeing performance. We are overjoyed with the final results
