Polyflor and Escape Fitness
COMMERCIAL sheet vinyl flooring from Polyflor’s Expona Flow PUR collection was recently installed in a new gym area at Shrewsbury Sports Village in Shropshire.
Peterborough-based Escape Fitness designed the sports centre’s new gym and also installed the 220sq m of Expona Flow PUR flooring throughout the space for Shropshire Community Leisure Trust. This heterogeneous vinyl flooring was used for the areas surrounding cardio and resistance equipment, the free weight area and walkways.
Two designs from the Expona Flow range were selected to be installed alongside each other - English Oak from the Wood collection and Meadow from the Cosmos collection.
English Oak is said to be a traditional timber design featuring a subtle rustic effect while Meadow is an intense yellow-green shade with subtle pearlescent highlights which creates ‘a fun but functional environment’.
Paul Lipscombe, international flooring project manager at Escape Fitness said, ‘We love how these two Expona Flow designs work together to create clearly defined pathways around the gym area and a vibrant atmosphere which we hope will help motivate visitors.’
Available in a 2m wide format with a 2mm gauge, the UK manufactured Expona Flow PUR flooring collection includes 50 wood, stone and abstract designs.
Suitable for a range of leisure facilities and other heavy commercial environments, Expona Flow PUR is said to be enhanced with Polyflor’s robust polyurethane reinforcement which is cross-linked and UV-cured for a simple polish-free maintenance regime and cleaning benefits.
Expona Flow product samples can be ordered free of charge on the Polyflor website or by calling the Polyflor Samples Direct Hotline.
Polyflor says, ‘Expona Flow’s environmental credentials are impressive, achieving a BRE A+ rating for major use areas in the healthcare sector and Indoor Air Comfort Gold, assuring that VOC emissions are below any globally determined levels. It’s also 100% recyclable via the Recofloor recycling scheme and contains recycled material.’
