Almost 600m2 of Gerflors’ World class Taraflex® vinyl sports flooring has been installed at Loughborough University. The badminton performance centre decided to bring forward the like for like replacement of Taraflex to ensure they stayed at the top of their game when it came to facilities.

Originally constructed in 2003, Loughborough University’s Badminton Centre was built with Olympic specification in mind and upgraded in 2011 with Gerflor’s Taraflex® as part of the specification.

When it came to refurbishing the Badminton Centre once more, Taraflex® was the automatic flooring of choice. Tim Oakey, Project Manager for the Facilities Department, Loughborough University, explains: “As Taraflex® is a very good, approved surface for badminton with the right amount of flex and grip for our players, it was simply a case of ‘why change’.

Gerflor’s complete Taraflex® Combi 85 System proved to be the ideal solution. This is an ultimate combination comprising a fully height-adjustable cradle and batten substructure overlaid with plywood, finished with a 7.5mm Taraflex® Evolution playing surface. The perfect duo provides one of the highest specification sports floorings available with optimum safety and ball bounce.
