We completed another sports floor installation for Freedom Leisure at their Flash Leisure Centre site in Welshpool. We have a great relationship with Freedom Leisure because we recently installed sports hall flooring at their Brecon Leisure Centre site, which they wanted to use as a blueprint for Flash.
Flash Leisure Centre had a dated Granwood sports hall floor that desperately needed replacing. Most importantly they wanted an up to date compliant sports surface.
Although the old Granwood floor was generally ok (structurally), we had to deal with various challenges including the subfloor, door and underfloor heating. We therefore quickly overcame these challenges and we put a sports floor specification together. This was tailored to Flash Leisure Centre’s user type and activity type.
The chosen sports hall floor product was a seamless polyurethane system in a striking blue colour. Flash Leisure Centre also opted for a dark blue border which really gave the sports floor the finishing detail it needed. The polyurethane sports floor system is a point elastic floor and is EN14904 compliant.
We finished the flooring installation with game line marking and 4 sets of integrated badminton posts which are supplied by Continental Sports. These were installed in-house by our skilled team and this is something we do for all our installations
The installation was completed on time and on budget. As always it was a pleasure working with the team at Freedom Leisure.
