Life Floor announces Grassports Australia as new partner

Life Floor announces Grassports Australia as new partner
March 22, 2024

Life Floor (Australia and New Zealand) Managing Director Grant Burgess has announced the appointment of Grassports Australia as Life Floor dealer representative and installer for Victoria and Queensland.

Announcing the partnership, Burgess stated “five years ago Grassports in Queensland partnered with Life Floor (ANZ) as they saw it as an exciting new product to present to their customers in local government, education, theme parks and hotels.

“That decision has proved to be a success with Grassports Queensland accomplishing over 20 Life Floor installations. Some of those installations included Wet’n’Wild, Dreamworld, Sugarworld Adventure Park, ULTIQA Beach Haven Resort, and Emmanuel College, Carrara.”

Burgess noted that now “I am very confident Grassports in Victoria will emulate their Queensland team’s outstanding success.

“The unique properties of Life Floor foam-rubber surfacing system keep people safer when barefoot in an aquatic environment and that’s being recognised more now with Life Floor becoming the go-to surface when safety, design, functionality, and value are seen as the key priorities”.

Grassports Managing Director, Bernard Evans commented “we have watched our Queensland team rollout Life Floor during the last few years and the improvement Life Floor has made to not only refurbished aquatic facilities, but also new facilities like community pools and splash parks.

“It’s now time the Victorian operation follows, so we will now be adding Life Floor to our product portfolio.

“We are very well known in the education market and feel Life Floor will resonate with those customers who are seeking to refurbish their aquatic facilities and changerooms as it offers significant safety and hygiene benefits with its slip-resistance, cushioning, impermeability, and assortment of inspiring colours and shapes”.

Jonathan Keller, co-founder and Global Chief Executive of Life Floor, added “we believe all aquatic spaces should be safe and beautiful. As an international brand, we rely on trusted, local partners to help deliver on our mission and uphold our values.

“We are excited about our partnership with Grassports now expanding into Victoria to further leverage the success we've witnessed in Australia”.
