Flowcrete Australia launches resin flooring for aquatic and recreation facilities

Flowcrete Australia launches resin flooring for aquatic and recreation facilities
November 19, 2018

Flowcrete Australia has launched Flowsports Aquatic, a range of high-performance resin flooring solutions for aquatic and recreation facilities.

The Flowsports Aquatic collection features a number of solutions that have been designed to provide decorative, safe and reliable floors for areas such as internal and external pool concourses, walkways, amenities, change rooms and grandstand seating zones.

The new systems were designed to meet the specific flooring criteria within swimming pool environments, such as waterproofing, withstanding exposure to large quantities of water, minimising slips and trips, preventing unhygienic conditions and facilitating a fun and active space.

Flowsports Aquatic consists of five new floor finishes, providing a choice of options for the specific flooring challenges present across areas within a leisure facility.

The range includes Flowsports SRQ, a decorative epoxy system that uses coloured quartz granules to create an attractive, durable and non-slip surface underfoot. It is suitable for internal applications including pool surrounds, walkways, change rooms and amenities.

For spaces where additional moisture tolerance is required, the hybrid resin-based solution Flowsports SRQ PU can be applied. If time is of the essence, then Flowsports SRQ Rapide is the system to go for, as its methyl methacrylate (MMA) enhanced formulation means that it can be installed in a fraction of the time of alternative materials.

The range also includes two low VOC, flexible, texture polyurethane-based systems, Flowsports ID for interior spaces and Flowsports ED for exterior areas. Both are available in a variety of solid colour finishes and provide enhanced protection against impacts, UV rays and chemicals.The range can incorporate drainage, an important health and safety factor as it avoids water ponding and becoming both a slip hazard and a prime site for bacterial growth.

Flowcrete says the seamless, impervious and chemical-resistant nature of the solutions means floors are easy to clean and won’t be affected by pool sanitising chemicals.
