New rubber safety flooring for Horsham Aquatic Centre

New rubber safety flooring for Horsham Aquatic Centre
September 22, 2020

Horsham Rural City Council in western Victoria has replaced the rubber floor covering throughout the entire indoor pool walkways with Life Floor at its large aquatic centre.

As with a number of aquatic construction projects across Australia, the enforced Coronavirus shutdown provided an opportune window to embark on the major task without any disruptions.

Grassports Australia (Queensland) was awarded the contract following a tender process and completed the 450 metre² installation in under two weeks using the 10mm thick anti-slip ripple texture tile.

Horsham Council Project Manager, Madelein Van Heerden, who managed the entire project, explained "after a lot of research into a suitable floor covering which would help keep our pool users safe, look good, and be easier to keep clean and maintain we chose Life Floor."

Grassports Australia (Queensland) Managing Director Brenden Dawson added “this is our fifth Life Floor installation in 12 months and we have been very happy with the outcomes – especially when we see how people feel about the appearance and are so much happier when walking on it.”
