A PVC floor installation aids soccer team by offering a durable product that is efficient yet aesthetically pleasing.
Transit floor tiles were laid at the new Kaiser Chiefs gym in Lenaron, Naturena, Johannesburg by Kevin Bates Albert Carpets Flooring (KBAC), contracted by Rodacil Construction.
The installation by KBAC lasted two days with the total area serviced amounting to 236m². It entailed the use of 3mm thick Quadra Super Mist 300 x 300 mm tiles. Being PVC and not rubber-based, Transit tiles do not absorb mineral oil-based liquids which together with inherent rubber flooring installation difficulties can cause unsightly ‘blistering’. In most instances they can be fitted using a one-way-application, acrylic adhesive, and the entire Transit range is non-directional.
Transit is a 100% South African product that is locally manufactured in Gauteng. The tiles are impervious to most chemicals and solvents making them ideal for heavy-traffic areas and can be used in areas subjected to constant spillage of water. Transit tiles are also extremely robust which is absolutely essential when installed in a gym as the floor must be able to withstand the impact of the heavy equipment on it being used daily.
Advances within the plastics industry have allowed Transit Floor Tiles to manufacture their products from local, readily available material, which is not only dimensionally stable but also extremely durable. Through the installation of Transit tiles by KBAC, the Kaiser Chiefs Gym is set to last a significant number of years, as it continues to combine efficiency with beauty.
