In July 2010, The University of South Wales (USW) in Treforest had the foresight to install 923 m2 of Taraflex® Performance vinyl sports flooring in ‘Maple’ and ‘Blue’ from international flooring specialist Gerflor. This high-quality installation was also partnered with a Gerflor Taraflex® Combisport system for a new building located at their Sports Park. It was a vision that would prove to yield fantastic results for the next eleven years.
Taraflex® Performance is available in 17 colours and 3 wood-effect designs as standard with an addition of 110 solid colour options available. It offers a P2 category shock absorbency of 35% to 45%. and is also treated with the Triple Action Protecsol® surface treatment so that no polish is ever required for the lifetime of the floor. The Taraflex® Combisport system is ideal for installations requiring a low-profile floor for a vast range of new build and renovation projects.
Carl Mahoney, Sports Duty Officer, Operations at The University of South Wales commented, “I have been impressed by how little injuries we have had with the Taraflex floor. Having twenty years’ experience in the leisure industry and dealing with regular sporting injuries on the old styles of sports hall floors, I would certainly choose Gerflor Taraflex, as operationally it is also easier to maintain compared to hard wood flooring.”
