Case Studies

Les Ormes

CLIENT: Les Ormes Jersey

SOLUTION: Taraflex® Performance

When Les Ormes wanted to refurbish an old tennis building by transforming it into four new netball courts, they turned to Flawless Flooring and international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply 2000m2 of their world class Taraflex® sports flooring.

Taraflex® Performance easily meets the rigorous demands of netball, providing excellent co-efficient of friction, this means twists, turns, stops/starts can be carried out without fear of slipping or gripping and subsequent injuries.

The shock absorption qualities of Taraflex® Performance also helps players even more enjoyment from the sport. In fact, many Netball Super League fixtures are played on Taraflex® surfaces where the feedback has always
been incredibly positive.


"the Gerflor Taraflex® Performance sports flooring which was donated to us by The States of Jersey was installed. The Jersey Netball Team who train and play on the surface are extremely delighted with it’s performance."

With a complete range of shock absorption P1/P2/P3, Taraflex® sports floorings from Gerflor provide the right solution every time and optimal safety for users. The combination of D-Max™/D-Max™+, CXP™HD foam ensures that Taraflex® sports floorings are durable and high-performing.

Taraflex® also meets the EN 14904 Standard which is the minimum performance requirements to be met by indoor sports floors. Its objective is to draw attention to the necessity of installing safe, comfortable floors that reduce the risk of injuries.

Taraflex® technology also delivers long-lasting high-performance of the products for the lifetime of the floors… a massive boon when long-term planning and budgeting are perceived as being two key considerations for specifiers. Taraflex® sports flooring has been fitted at every Olympic Games since 1976. Approved by many National and International governing bodies as a world class sports surface, it is also widely installed within the education, community, leisure, health, and fitness sectors.

"It’s excellent to see one of our sports floors being given a second life like this after it was used at the Island Games tournament five years ago. They can now play a multitude of different sports in the hall and the variety of colours used makes this project so unique."
