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 power lifters & body builders. 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.
