New Life Floor offers safe and durable aquatic surfacing

New Life Floor offers safe and durable aquatic surfacing
August 24, 2016

A new surface designed specifically for wet areas including pool surrounds, water parks, change rooms and showers where people are barefoot is now available in Australia.

Launched at last week’s SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show, Life Floor offers industry-leading traction, comfort, durability and infinite design possibilities.

Made from cellular polyurethane, the Life Floor surface is soft without being rough and come in different textures, thicknesses, and colour options.

Life Floor tiles repel water and other liquids making them non-absorbent, antimicrobial, stain-proof, and chemical resistant.

Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, Life Floor has rapidly grown from an innovative idea into the industry standard for beautiful, comfortable, safer flooring.

The product is now available in with Australia and New Zealand via distributor Sport + Venues.

Sport + Venues (Australia) Partner Grant Burgess explains “while Life Floor got its start in waterparks, the company today serves facilities and end-users in a wide variety of industries, including aquatic and recreation centres, fitness clubs, swim schools, hotels and resorts, and domestic markets.”

Since 2011, Life Floor has grown from 13 original locations to hundreds of installations in more than 40 US states and multiple countries.

Life Floor helps facility owners revolutionise the safety, comfort, and overall look of their environments, with millions of happy feet as the result.

As of 2018, Sport + Venues (Australia) has become Life Floor Australia & New Zealand.
