Honeypark is a high-end residential apartment development built on the Olde Dún Laoghaire Golf course in Dublin. Apart from the original features of the golf course with its magnificent array of trees, flora and fauna, a multi-million-euro investment programme has now been implemented. It’s in perfect keeping with a development that was once home to the Olde Dún Laoghaire Golf club, now offering a lush setting that has been reborn as South Dublin’s finest new address.

As part of the project, a gym was installed on the penthouse level of the development. The designated contractor needed a flooring surface that would deliver noise reduction levels to avoid unacceptable impact sound to apartments below the installed gym area.

Only the highest quality state of the art gym flooring would be specified by the contractor and the final choice would be Gerflor’s outstanding Powershock 300.

There are flooring types that can resist the beating of the free-weight and weight lifting areas. Then there are floors that look great and floors that are made in formats that make them quick to install, interchangeable and replaceable. There are also floors that are easy to maintain.

The Powershock 300 range from Gerflor is a high impact rubber solution that delivers all the above and is perfect for a host of fitness activities as it is designed to be both functional and hardwearing. The range is durable and easy to clean and maintain, providing up to five times more resistance to indentation than a standard rubber flooring.

This 30mm thick high impact rubber flooring tile is ideal for free weight and heavy weight areas in any gym or fitness facility. The tiles are made from vulcanised rubber to increase their strength and durability and the non-porous wearlayer is impermeable and odourless. The pre-installed connector pins make for easy installation. Powershock 300 avoids deep-impact damage while providing outstanding sound deadening, with a sound installation of 26dB, whilst also providing important protection for the existing subfloor.

Achieving stunning looks coupled with high levels of safety and performance can often be a challenge, however Gerflor’s range of durable fitness solutions stand the test of time even in heavy traffic environments delivering superior performance every time. Their collection of sports and fitness products are the ideal solution for several key areas within any sports or fitness facility including; aerobics and classroom areas, personalised training zones, free weights areas, fitness and cardiovascular spaces, together with reception areas and changing rooms.
