Sports Hall Protection at Nottingham University
Posted: Thu, 06 Sep 2012 19:46
As part of the Graduation event for the University we were also asked to provide protection for the recently installed sports hall flooring. The brief from the University was to protect the newly installed floor with a suitable carpet barrier onto which seating would be placed. Additionally the hall required carpeting for both the main walkways and stage area.
Nottingham University also wanted a solution which could be used for several years, thereby reducing the need to scrap the product and comply with their recycling environmental policies. Having supplied a product to both Loughborough University and Bolton arena for annual usage over 5 year's events, we were happy to recommend and supply our EFS Club rubber backed carpets. This flooring solution is ideal for purchase, short term usage and long term storage as it is quick and easy to install and remove. The bespoke size of the hall was, however a challenge (37.9m x 34.5m) and as such we commissioned 18 bespoke rolls (4m x 17.5m) of EFS Club rubber backed carpet and 1 roll of 2m x 37m.
Working within tight deadlines we laid the carpet within 3 hours for the events. Having purchased the carpet we were asked by the University to remove and re-roll the carpet for storage – a task which took less than 2 hours. For the walkways and main stage we supplied our popular product Pop Art (Velour) in a co-ordinating Lilac in roll sizes of 4m x 30m. This complimented the Club product and gave a quality feel to this annual event.
