Context

As specialists in all aspects of sports flooring and acoustics, TVS Group was in a unique position to offer a comprehensive solution to St Francis Xavier School in Richmond for the refurbishment of its sports hall floor, one that would extend the lifespan of the vinyl floor for several years and help prevent further noise reverberation.

The sports hall floor had seen better days and looked in need of replacement after years of intensive use. The sports hall also suffered from severe acoustic issues.

Work undertaken

TVS operatives undertook a deep clean of the floor surface, removing years of dirt, grime and marks from the use of incorrect footwear and leaving the surface close to its original look and feel.

All of the existing line markings were overmarked with new 2-part polyurethane sports line paint to leave a crisp finish.

To further protect the floor and help to lengthen its lifespan TVS also supplied 600m2 of new protective carpet matting for exam and exhibition use. These are supplied as standard with simple to manoeuvre storage trolleys so that the tiles can be easily installed, removed and stored.

In addition, after conducting a detailed sound survey, TVS supplied and fitted over 260m2 of custom-made Absorb Sports Panels to reduce the reverberation times to acceptable levels.
