Ahead of the Game….Gerflor launch their new Taraflex® Multi-Use Exclusive Collection

Taraflex Exclusive Multi Use

International flooring specialist Gerflor has launched six stunning new designs with their 2022 Taraflex® Multi-Use Exclusive Collection. It heralds the dawn of a new design era for their Olympic standard world-class vinyl sports flooring.

Being able to overturn the thinking and day to day codes that prevail in the sports flooring environment is seen by Gerflor as a crucial move in providing customers with a range of innovative new colours and designs. When it’s time for change…it’s time for change!

Spearheaded by their Creative Director, Gino Venturelli and an in-house design and research team, Gerflor have again harnessed this talent to create these new exclusive designs, in line with current trends. Herringbone for a modern look inspired by noble materials and concrete for an industrial and urban touch. Their masking power make them ideal for multipurpose applications. Gerflor took a long hard look at the market to develop these six new designs which would both excite and inspire designers and architects. The new designs are a real reflection of a modern way of living, together with mirroring key contemporary trends that are prominent in everyday living.

The new exclusive Taraflex® Multi-Use designs include Pure Concrete, Pure Concrete Lagoon, Pure Concrete Dark and Pure Concrete Blue. These spectacular new designs are also joined by Natural Herringbone and Golden Herringbone wood effect designs with added realism.

New trends in design define the collections from Gerflor who are constantly striving to produce a whole new world of colours and textures that are stretching the boundaries of flooring design. It’s a doctrine that potentially dictates the look and appearance of the space we inhabit.

Taraflex® Multi-Use protects users with excellent shock absorption and impact protection of 25% to 35% (complies with EN Standard 14904). It’s also hard wearing enough to protect itself against non-sport demands often found in many demanding education environments, such as the movement of tables, chairs, and exercise equipment. This is due to improved indentation resistance and recovery through Gerflor’s new innovative CXP HD+ foam technology.

Commenting on the new collection David Carter, National Sales Manager – Sports Flooring, Gerflor said,” Being able to offer our customers a new exclusive collection of Taraflex Multi-Use designs has opened up even more possibilities for designers and architects. Creating six new wood and concrete designs will enhance any sports flooring project whether it is for renovation or a new build. These iconic new designs form part of our programme and commitment to on-going creative innovation.

It’s a worthy point to note that our new exclusive sports surfaces still come with the same world class technical performance of all our ranges…outstanding comfort, safety and protection for all, regardless of their age and ability when exercising or team play.
