Norwich UAE Sports hall

They needed a floor that was low maintenance, not subject to extremes of shrinkage or expansion or susceptible to dead spots.

In 1999 Keith Nicholls, Director of Physical Education gave testimony to the reasoning behind specifying Boflex for the new Norwich UEA sports hall of 1,782m².

“Our requirement was for a timber suspended wooden floor with the ability to take roll out bleacher seating without the need to put in additional joists under that area. We also wanted a floor that was low maintenance, not subject to extremes of shrinkage or expansion or susceptible to dead spots” In April 2009 a new sports park was opened at a cost of over £4 million, including the new Haydn Morris Hall which featured a new multi purpose sports hall of 1,300m2, again Keith Nicholls chose.

Key benefits:

  • Progressive shock absorption
  • Almost impossible to overload
  • High-level performance
  • Finished floor height 28mm

Boflex carries the unique combination of a built-in shock absorption material and a stable construction that can withstand almost unlimited loads. This makes the floor system ideal for venues with multi-purpose usage (schools for examples) and large arenas. The uniform performance suits children as well as adults, with good bounce and friction. Even after twenty years, Boflex performs as day one.

Tests conducted by SINTEF (formerly The Norwegian Building Research Institute) shows that Boflex surpasses all its rivals and performs exceptionally well when being used by children and adults protecting body joints from shocks.

Boflex offers flexibility to accommodate your needs. Due to its extremely low building height, it is well suited for renovation purposes. The floor system is suitable with underfloor heating, for rolling loads and allows both hardwood and elastic surfaces (Boflex Champion).

Tests show that the system can withstand an almost unlimited load, due to the special built-in foam under-structure that can never be compresses more than 50% making the system suitable for tackling the heavy weight grandstands.

Boflex must be installed on an even and selfsupporting sub-floor, or on top of an existing floor.
