Gerflor's ideal solution for Cheshire sports college

By Martin Nash    16 Feb 2012

When Wilmslow High School in Cheshire decided to build a new sport hall, Gerflor's Taraflex Sport M Performance was quickly identified as the natural choice for the flooring.

The school, classed as a Specialist Sports College and judged as 'outstanding' by Ofsted in 2011, has nearly 2,000 pupils aged from 11-18 and the belief that physical education and sport can enrich people's lives is fundamental to its ethos.

It is one of East Cheshire's centres of excellence for badminton and cricket, together with a strong netball tradition.

The new hall, known as the Olympic Hall, was designed to provide four badminton courts, a full basketball court plus practise basketball courts, cricket nets and volleyball courts, along with plenty of run-off space around them.

Further provision includes changing rooms, a PE classroom, disabled facilities and office and storage space.

Gerflor worked in partnership with the building contractors and other players in the project to ensure that the court markings were correctly aligned with the overhead lighting, together with the basketball and netball posts and sockets.

When it came to installing the floor, Gerflor's Dry-Tex system was used as it allowed the Taraflex Sport M Performance to be laid even though the concrete slab was still damp. This meant there was a minimum delay to the build programme and there was no need for additional moisture barriers.

The way the flooring was laid, in sheets with welded seams, was seen as a great advantage over a wet pour floor, due to the speed and efficiency of the installation.

Taraflex Sport M Performance is categorised as a point elastic floor complying with the EN 14904 Standard for indoor sports surfaces.

Further information on Taraflex Sport M Performance and all of Gerflor's products can be found at www.gerflor.co.uk and www.gerflor.ie
