Coup for Gerflor with Taraflex at college

Education Mon, Jan 4, 2021 7:18 AM

At St David's Catholic College in Cardiff, it enjoys a unique position in educational terms as it is the only Catholic sixth form college in Wales.

It was founded by the Archdiocese of Cardiff to be a place where faith is respected and encouraged, a deeply human place where people find understanding and friendship. It is also a college where sport and fitness alongside academia plays an important role in the overall development of each pupil.

In a recent refurbishment of the St David's College main sports hall, the final choice of the all-important playing indoor surface underwent a rigorous specification process. The main sports hall at the college contributes to the current growth of basketball at the youth level in Wales.

St David's College partners with the Cardiff Met Archers (the Cardiff National Basketball League team), allowing students to develop their skills on the court, while gaining a high-quality education Off it. The hugely important decision on the type Of replacement sports floor would be at the very top Of the agenda enabling only the best products to be used.

The outcome would fall to Cardiff-based installer CS Flooring Solutions who would specify some 610m2 of Taraflex@ Evolution sports flooring in 'Maple Design' from international flooring specialist Gerflor.

CS Flooring Solutions is the trading name of the commercial side of Carpet Services (Cardiff) Ltd which was founded in 1963. The commercial business sector is •mportant to the company where everyone is united in maintaining the company ideals Of customer service, value for money, and supplying top quality products.

Anthony Mynett, Director, Carpet Services (Cardiff) Ltd commented," We are the preferred flooring contractor at the college and chose Gerflor's Taraflex sports flooring as it conformed perfectly to the college's requirements." On installation Anthony Mynett went on to say. "we had absolutely no problems installing the Gerflor flooring as it's always easy to work with. Taraflex Evolution is unique as it covers a Granwood floor surface which no other sports floor can achieve. The college are really delighted with their new sports flooring which looks stunning ard is delivering great performance for all users including the basketball teams."

Taraflex@ Evolution is available in 17 colours and 4 wood-effect designs. The improved Evolution product is now even safer, better performing and offers even more protection than before.

The greater protection has been obtained thanks to a total re-engineering of the CXP-HDTM foam technology that provides cushioning for exercise and sports play. Gerflor•s Taraflex@ Evolution continues to be the market benchmark in sports floors with outstanding durability, improved comfort and protection offering a PI category shock absorbency (25% to 35%1. The product is treated with Triple Action Protecsol@, which renders polish redundant thus meaning no polish is ever required.

This treatment contributes to easy maintenance Of the floor and offers anti-friction burn and slide/grip.

Taraflex@ Evolution from Gerflor is also ideal for renovation works and is available with the Dry-Tex'" System perfect for new construction or refurbishment projects With damp subfloors.

Anthony Mynett ended by saying: "We would definitely specify Gerflor flooring again. We continually have great specification and technical support from Gerflor with all Of Our projects which always proves invaluable."
