Eureka National Children's Museum in Halifax has a focus on learning through play and a 'nothing trapped inside a glass cabinet' philosophy that has helped capture the imaginations of millions of children.

The recent refurbishment and expansion of Eureka National Children’s Museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire involved specifying and fitting 400m2 of flooring from international flooring specialist Gerflor.

The museum is split into six zones, each filled with hundreds of interactive exhibits designed to inspire enquiring minds to find out about themselves and the world around them. It is a not-for-profit organisation aimed at families with children aged 0-11 years and encourages hands-on inter-generational learning.

Leeds/Bradford-based Paynters Commercial and Contract Flooring specified Gerflor products to meet a brief requiring outstanding quality, performance, safety and appearance. The finished project features 300m2 of Gerflor’s Taralay Impression Control vinyl safety flooring in the cafe and shop areas and a further 100m2 of Tarasafe Super in the on-site kitchen facility that services the cafe.

With over 70 years’ experience, Gerflor has honed its expertise in safety flooring to produce the highest standards of safety and durability in a choice of inspirational designs. Gerflor products are easy to work with, the vinyl is very flexible and the products are competitively priced. In 2016 Gerflor won the Contract Flooring Journal/Contract Flooring Association Product of the Year category for its Taralay Impression Control safety flooring range.

Taralay Impression Control also offers a hygienic solution thanks to a revolutionary UV cured PUR surface treatment, Protecsol Control, for easy cleaning and maintenance and is 100 per cent recyclable.

Tarasafe Super, which was fitted in the museum kitchen, is a slip-resistant vinyl safety floorcovering with a PVC wear layer and deeply inlaid mineral crystal particles that is suitable for most contract and commercial applications. It is reinforced with a glass fibre grid and is an ideal solution for heavy traffic applications where slip-resistance, durability and hygiene are required.
