Gerflor’s Taraflex flooring has been installed at a gym complex owned by a European boxing champion. Metro Fitness in Stockport launched as a premium-offer budget gym in August 2012 and is owned by Matthew Hatton and his father Ray.

Metro Fitness director George Stylianou said Taraflex fulfilled his requirement for flooring that was highly durable and would cope with the volume of use, “whilst being relatively forgiving to higher impact exercise”.

Stylianou commented: “Having noticed the Gerflor advert in Leisure Management, I felt that their new Taraflex product might be a good fit. I read the testimonials and having viewed the product for myself; I commissioned the installation, which I have to say, was extremely efficient and professional throughout.”

The Taraflex flooring has been used in every Summer Olympic Games since 1976 and is available in 17 colours and two wood-effect designs. The Sport M Evolution product offers a very high P1 category shock absorbency which exceeds 25 per cent and meets the EN 14904 standard for indoor sports surfaces. The range also focuses on comfort, and offers greater than 45 per cent force reduction.
