Sport flooring ranges for all your needs Gerflor is an innovative manufacturer of high -performance vinyl flooring solutions perfect for the Hospitality and Health and Fitness markets. Taraflex® sports flooring is the most widely specified indoor sports surface in the world, providing users with optimum comfort, safety and performance when exercising.
Taraflex® Comfort offers the highest comfort and shock absorption to prevent long-term injuries and immediate injuries upon impact. The most comfortable sports flooring in the Taraflex® range, Taraflex® Comfort offers great protection for studios that are unlikely to use equipment for activities such as yoga and Pilates. With such comfort, floor-based exercise without mats is achievable. Also, Comfort is the ideal flooring solution for designated stretching areas.
For Aerobic and Classroom areas there is Taraflex® Performance. Every club wants its members to get the best out of their fitness classes, the functional training session, their core workout, but you especially want your members to come back for more. The type of floor you choose for your facility is decisive in post exercise speed of recovery and key to how fast your members get fit. If your members are sore and stiff from the previous day’s workout they’ll often wait before coming back for more. People get fitter faster when they recover from the previous workout. Fitness levels improve when members recover and then work out again. Taraflex® Performance has a safe cushioned surface, it is comfortable and quiet underfoot.
One to one coaching is appealing but the cost can often be prohibitive for many of your customers. Group training classes are great but can sometimes be not specific enough to the requirements of each participant. We can customise the flooring to the requirements of your coaching staff in order to carry out small group training. Tell us your plans and we’ll turn your dreams into reality. Taraflex® Evolution is the same flooring used by international athletes for the Olympic Games and World Championships. It is fully customisable and offers optimum resilience, comfort and protection to allow your coaches to deliver their very best workout.
Taraflex® Multi-Use is the perfect sports flooring for facilities where multi-use is required, such as floor-based classes, gym use with equipment including kettlebells or dumbbells, spinning bikes or concept rowers. It is a real indoor sports floor with excellent indentation resistance and recovery, making it the ideal solution for areas where there are also tables and chairs in use.
Stunning solutions for studio and aerobics applications The fitness and cardio areas of most facilities are often the biggest and most visible… If you have invested heavily in getting the best CV equipment possible, the last thing you need is a floor that cannot stand up to loading or small movements of the machines. If areas do become damaged, you need to be able to replace sections easily with minimum disruption to your members. Your equipment needs to always look great, this means both machines and the floors. The GTI Max vinyl tile range is the ultimate flooring for heavy traffic environments and is extremely hard-wearing and easy to install, great for you as there is no need to close the premises saving you time and money and there is minimal disruption to your members/clientele.
