St David’s lays down new sports hall flooring

ST DAVID'S Catholic College in Cardiff enjoys a unique position in educational terms as it is the only Catholic sixth form college in Wales. 

In a recent refurbishment of their main sports hall the choice of the playing indoor surface underwent a rigorous specification process. The hugely important decision would demand that only the best products be used and the final specification would settle on some 610 sqm of Taraflex® vinyl sports flooring in “Maple” from international flooring specialist Gerflor. 

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

Anthony Mynett, Director, Carpet Services (Cardiff), 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. Taraflex Evolution is unique as it covers a Granwood floor surface which no other sports floor can achieve.”
