Project objectives

Neil Donohue (owner) approached us to come up with a flooring solution for his new gym which is located next door to his current gym. The unit was an old office which was set-out over two floors. Neil wanted to create 5 zones which included a strong man area, functional zone, prowler lane, functional studio and weights area.

Neil’s gym is well known in the area and he attracts a wide range of users which include ‘regular’ gym users as well as powerlifters & bodybuilders. Neil wanted to create a facility that would suit all user types so we set to work on devising a gym flooring specification.

Work completed inc. products used

After a few site visits and on-site tests, we put forward a range of flooring specifications to suit each area:

In the strongman area, we specified a two-layer high impact flooring system that is 80mm thick. This is designed to withstand heavy loads and impact.

In the functional area, we specified a 15mm rubber tile that has a durable wear-layer. This floor is ideal for multi-use areas and is easy to clean.

In the prowler lane, we specified our RECSystems Premium Sports Carpet which included the South Coast Gym logo and indicator markings & numbers. We coupled this with a shock pad underlay so weights can be used it the area too.

In the studio, we specified our RECSystems Combined Elastic Sports Floor which includes Gerflor’s Multi-Use 6.2 in the new ‘dark concrete’ colour. This flooring system is ideal high impact activities as well as floor-based classes such as Yoga and Pilates.

In the weights area, we specified a 30mm rubber tile which is perfectly suited to the low range of dumbells and CV equipment.
