Tough, strong…and sexy. There are flooring types that can resist the beating of the free-weight and weight lifting areas. There are floors that look great. There are floors that are made in formats that make them quick to install, interchangeable and replaceable. There are floors that are easy to maintain. The Powershock 300, 100 and 60 ranges from Gerflor are high impact rubber solutions for fitness, designed to be both functional and hardwearing. Powershock tiles are made from vulcanised rubber to increase the strength and durability, the non-porous wearlayer is impermeable and odourless. They are more durable and easier to clean and maintain and provide up to 5 times more resistant to indentation than a standard rubber flooring.

Gerflor have a wide range of technically advanced flooring solutions tailored to the needs of the fitness market. Innovative products that assist with getting your facility open as soon as possible or refurbish without the need to close. For those quick refurbishment projects Gerflor will be highlighting their fast-track GTI Max and LVT ranges.
