    Pencoedtre High School is a large new build high school in Barry, Wales. When this busy school required a brand-new world class flooring surface for its main indoor sports hall, they simply wanted only the best! HLM Architects would specify 700m2 of Taraflex® vinyl sports flooring in ‘Maple’, from international flooring specialists Gerflor.

    Commenting on the project Tony Thorne Gerflor, Sales & Specification Manager South Wales said,” We offered the client the opportunity for a free waterjet logo of their school crest within the sports floor which they happily accepted. The Architect and school were very happy with this as it really sets the sports floor off.”

    On specification and the overall project Angela Sheppard Part II Architectural Assistant at HLM Architects said,” We selected the Maple colour to suit the sports hall to contrast clearly with the multi-sport markings and sit alongside the sports-recommended blue walls.”

    The Interiors Team at HLM Architects said at the time, “Gerflor are our go to for a vinyl sports floor, they are affordable, multi-use and meet the necessary regulations and slip resistance which we have to consider in these situations. Alongside this their customer service is excellent and they have a great range of finishing options.”

    Established over twenty-five years ago Port Talbot-based Craftsman Flooring would be appointed to undertake the full installation of the Gerflor Taraflex® sports flooring.

    Gareth Lewis, Commercial Director Craftsman Flooring stated, “The Gerflor Taraflex flooring was extremely easy to lay and went down without any trouble at all. We are particularly happy with the Gerflor sports flooring as the sports marking applied on top looks stunning. We would definitely specify Gerflor products again.”
