Set in nearly 12 acres of landscaped grounds, Fairlawns Hotel & Spa is a family-run hotel near Walsall in the West Midlands. At this nirvana they offer four-star rooms and suites, a popular restaurant, extensive fitness and spa facilities, together with events spaces for everything from intimate family dinners to lavish weddings.

A recent refurbishment of their gym facility saw a trio of international flooring specialist Gerflor’s products being specified to ensure that the free weights, cardio and stretch zones met the hotel’s high standards. A remit that was ideally suited to Gerflor’s Powershock 300 and Creation 70 LVT, together with their world-renowned Taraflex® sports flooring.

John Pette, General Manager, Fairlawns Hotel & Spa said, “We have a broad range of facilities and a track record of meeting expectations of our customers. Most important however is remembering our hospitality roots and reflecting those in the way in which we deliver customer experience and our team.” John went on to further comment, “We needed to bring the existing gym facilities up to date and more in line with the other spa facilities. The gym membership income is vital to our business and increasingly the gym offering is an important part of hotel and spa guests’ requirements.”

Powershock 300 from Gerflor is a high impact rubber flooring solution that is designed to be both functional and hard-wearing. The range is more durable and easier to clean and maintain than standard rubber flooring and provides up to five times more resistance to indentation. Powershock 300 is a 30mm thick high impact rubber flooring tile ideal for free weight and heavy weight areas in any gym or fitness facility. Their pre-installed connector pins make for easy installation. Powershock 300 avoids deep-impact damage while providing outstanding sound deadening. The tiles are made from vulcanised rubber to increase their strength and durability, the non-porous wearlayer is impermeable and odourless. Powershock 300 also delivers fantastic shock absorption qualities and sound installation of 26dB, whilst also providing important protection for the existing subfloor.
