Performance Prep Academy

Performance Preparation Academy

Three new floos for three rooms at PPA.

In December 2011 over 240m2 of 28mm Boflex Stadium Oak was installed by contractor Salisbury Hardwood Flooring Ltd over three levels within the Performance Preparation Academy based at Regent House in Guildford.

PPA was created in 2008 by Rachel Crouch and Louise Glarvey. Their aim was to create first class vocational training, which also provided academic qualifications in musical theatre, dance and drama. Stars of screen and stage Bonnie Langford and Kerry Ellis, Patrons of PPA officially opened the building in January 2012.

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.
