Polyflor helps move refurbishment of Hampshire community centre in the right direction

Forest fx PUR vinyl flooring from UK manufacturer Polyflor was recently used to create striking design floors at The Pavilion on the Park, a youth and community centre in Eastleigh, Hampshire.

Forest fx PUR vinyl flooring was installed by Tildan Construction in the centre’s Park View Café and Woodpecker Hall function room as part of Eastleigh Youth and Community Trust, Eastleigh Borough Council and Hampshire County Council’s £700,000 project to develop the Pavilion. The building hosts 28 weekly activities including music, dance, drama and exercise clubs, as well as activities for the local disabled community, so required a hard wearing floorcovering that would cope with the demands of a busy events schedule.

Specified by Southampton based architects Michael Weakley Associates, Forest fx PUR vinyl sheet flooring in the warm Rich Cherry shade was selected for the installation. A further four Forest fx shades – Classic Oak, Smoked Oak, Warm Beech and Mahogany – were used to create the detailed compass motifs designed by Michael Weakley Associates which sit in the centre of the café and hall floors.

These bespoke compass designs were created for The Pavilion on the Park by Polyflor’s experienced in-house Design Service team using water jet cutting technology which can produce virtually any shape, pattern or logo from Polyflor’s high performance vinyl flooring.

Daisy Robinson, Community Development Manager at The Pavilion on the Park commented,

“We’re delighted with the finished look of the floors in our newly refurbished Park View Café and Woodpecker Hall. The compass designs which Polyflor created for us look really impressive and have received many positive comments from our visitors.”

Suitable for high traffic heavy commercial environments, the Forest fx PUR range features 14 highly realistic wood effect designs with a cross-linked and UV cured polyurethane reinforcement (PUR) for a low cost, polish-free maintenance regime for the lifetime of the flooring.

Forest fx PUR product samples can be ordered free of charge on the Polyflor website or by calling the Polyflor Samples Direct Hotline on 0161 767 2551. Forest fx flooring also contains recycled material and is 100% recyclable via the Recofloor scheme.
