The Sybil Adrews Academy on the outskirts of Bury St Edmonds is a glowing example of how a stunning bespoke design can deliver a functional and inspiring place for students and staff alike.

The multi-million project includes sports facilities that are shared with the community together with delivering the expanding Moreton Hall Estate with a much-needed sports centre. The new resource includes a six-court sports hall, gym and an activity studio to be used jointly by the school and the wider community, with separate changing facilities, entrances and offices for each. As with all quality new builds the flooring element for the sports areas would have to be of the highest quality possible.

Kate Crouch, Abbeycroft Leisure's Skyliner Sports Centre Manager said, "We've been very pleased with the Gerflor Taraflex sports flooring, since we opened earlier this year. Our members have positively commented about their experience at the gym including the flooring and the equipment. It's so important to get the flooring right in a sports facility; for the member's performance; for the staff and for the long-term maintenance".

She went on to further add, "We were also very impressed with the installation process which was efficient and professional and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Gerflor Taraflex® sports flooring again".

The Taraflex® 'point elastic' flooring has a higher comfort factor than 'area elastic' floors and reduces the risk and severity of injuries. The product is also treated with Protecsol®. The triple action surface treatment means no polish is ever required contributing to easy maintenance, reduces the potential for skin burns and ensures excellent levels of grip and slide when the users need it most. Taraflex® has a double density foam backing and as another bonus, it's environmentally friendly.

Gerflor have more than 70 years of experience with Taraflex® sports flooring. It offers a wide range of colours and is suitable for a variety of applications. It is also ideal for renovation works and is available with the Dry-Tex™ System perfect for new construction or refurbishment projects with damp subfloors.
