First Life Floor anti-slip installation completed at Julia Creek Swimming Pool

First Life Floor anti-slip installation completed at Julia Creek Swimming Pool
December 11, 2017

Life Floor has just completed their first Australian installation for the McKinlay Shire Council at the Julia Creek Swimming Pool in North Queensland.

Installed as part of a new splashpad, the new 130 metre² installation is of Life Floor ripple texture tiles in three shades: bluebird, iceberg and porcelain.

Life Floor is a soft, anti-slip, non abrasive floor tile made in the USA. The foam rubber tiles have been made especially for aquatics – where people are barefoot in wet areas.

Grant Burgess of distributor Sport + Venues Australia explains "we all know how important it is to be safe in water but it’s also becoming increasing important with pool operators and councils to be safe around water.

"Knowing painted concrete is unforgiving underfoot; and if coated with slip resistant paint in addition to still being hard, it’s also abrasive, the builder wanted to try something new.

"The Council agreed and so Life Floor was installed."

Constructed by Townsville-based Gibbons Constructions Life Floor brought in an experienced Life Floor installer who helped guide the project over the three day installation where temperature hovered around 40 centigrade.

Further Life Floor installations are set to take place in Sydney before Christmas, followed by one in Melbourne in mid-January.

Life Floor's exclusive Australian distributor is Sport + Venues (Life Floor Australia & New Zealand as of 2018).
