TARKETT Offers A Dramatic Finish For Henry Beaufort School

The Henry Beaufort School in Winchester has recently benefited from the installation of Tarkett sports flooring to its drama facilities. The school is a mixed comprehensive for 11-16 year olds, designated as a specialist technology college. The Beacon Arts Centre is the school’s base for Art, Drama and Music and features modern, well-equipped facilities. Tarkett sports flooring was chosen to replace the worn-out carpets in the two drama rooms to provide a high performance, durable and attractive finish.

Floor Sure carried out the installation of around 200m2 of Tarkett’s Omnisports Reference flooring throughout the two drama rooms, which can be opened up into one large studio via a folding wall. “We prepared the subfloor with a primer and self-levelling latex before laying the Omnisports surface and welding the joints”, explained Darren Cooper of Floor Sure. “The finished result looks excellent and the school are extremely pleased”, he added.

Tarkett’s Omnisports Reference is a specialist indoor sports surface, developed for all levels of sports competition, that complies with the requirements of the European Standard EN 14904. It features a fibreglass mesh backing that offers optimal indentation resistance and low internal stress levels within the playing surface, distributing the stress evenly. It may also be loose-laid, enabling the flooring to be recycled at end of life and the subfloor to be reused without further preparation.

When fully bonded, as at Henry Beaufort School, Omnisports Reference provides 27% impact absorption, and 26% when loose-laid. The surface is treated with TopClean XP, a polyurethane treatment that provides additional wear resistance and that helps to reduce maintenance costs, limiting the consumption of water, detergents and energy needed for cleaning.

Tarkett’s Omnisports range is available in a choice of 4 thicknesses to satisfy varying degrees of shock absorption and performance requirements. There are a wide variety of colour options to choose from, including several wood effect finishes that are ideal for areas such as drama studios and assembly halls where visual appearance may be as important as performance. All Omnisports floors are composed of at least 20-25% recycled material to further enhance their environmental profile. The new flooring at Henry Beaufort School has already been put to good use by students rehearsing for their 30 minute production of Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’, which they later performed as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival in Eastleigh.
