Logos and Bespoke Designs are at Forefront of R&D with Gerflor

26 May 2017

Sports facilities, health clubs and fitness facilities are becoming more personalised and flooring is now playing a key role in their overall appeal to users.

Creating a truly unique look is becoming a bigger priority and as the catalogue of products on the market continues to develop, consumers will be faced with more options than ever before, which makes a bespoke look much more accessible to a host of clients. It's a fact that floor surfaces are a major visual element in most facilities and will have a significant impact on the internal environment for the user. The use of bespoke logos and water cutting on flooring design also creates brand awareness and re-enforces the sales or corporate message.

International flooring and interiors specialist Gerflor are at the very forefront of R&D when it comes to supplying the manufacturing support and products to enable this bespoke look and feel for a wide range of their clients and installers.

With Gerflor's unique My Taralay service customers can choose from 150 colours which provides more than an incredible 400,000 combinations. It’s the ideal way to visualise a project and provides the perfect platform to show clients the 'look' before ordering.  An additional benefit with the Gerflor system is that by water jet cutting Gerflor can create bespoke designs and logos which further enhances the choices for designers and specifiers.

When the Whitburn Community Centre near Edinburgh wanted a flooring with better shock absorption qualities than wood, that could deliver the required level of safety and comfort, together with accommodating their own designs and logos they turned to Gerflor to supply the solution. The Taraflex® Sport M Evolution from Gerflor now installed in the main hall is used particularly for 5-a-side football, badminton and netball.

The Centre coordinator Janette Wood commented, "The reaction has been fantastic. It's still a firm surface, but there's more 'give'. The footballers have said it's gentler on the knees and much better to run on".
