Case Study

Torquay Boys Grammar School

When the school urgently needed to replace their existing wooden floor in their main hall due to flooding, they turned to international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply over 600m2 of their world-renowned Taraflex® Performance vinyl sports flooring.

The main hall at Torquay Boys Grammar School is used for a mixture of sports activities including health and fitness, racket sports, team sports and gymnastics, so a sports floor that could deliver performance, safety and durability would be paramount in the final choice of the replacement flooring.

Achieving a first-class installation that would be on budget, on time and as importantly, meet the stringent requirements that the school would insist on was a challenge well-met by Plymouth-based Roberts Flooring. Dave Moran, Managing Director, Roberts Flooring commented, “the school had previously had an unfortunate flooding incident which caused their current timber sprung sports floor to  swell and become defective.”
