15 May 2017

The all-new STAR Hub in Cardiff opened its doors in September 2016 and now proudly sits at the heart of the Splott, Tremorfa, Adamsdown and Roath communities. Their spacious Health & Fitness Suite houses all-new TechnoGym equipment, including a Functional Fitness frame for a fun approach to a traditional workout.

In short, it’s a haven for fitness that’s inspiring the local community to become fitter and more active. A spokesperson for City of Cardiff Council commented, "The STAR Hub project is one of several community hubs developed by the City of Cardiff Council in recent years, at strategic locations around the City. The Hub concept allows the Council and its partners to bring together a range of services under one roof so that they can be delivered to local communities in a more effective and efficient manner".

The specification of the flooring was very important in the new STAR Hub facility with 320m2 of Taraflex® vinyl sports flooring from international flooring and interiors specialist Gerflor being installed.

Taraflex® vinyl sports flooring from Gerflor has been used in many international and local sporting events and is produced in a range of colours and three wood-effect designs. It is available to meet the different levels of the EN 14904 Standard, delivering the full scope of indoor sports surfaces from P1 to P3 shock absorption solutions. Taraflex® is recognised for providing durability, safety and comfort without impairing performance.
