The existing vinyl tiles were worn and in desperate need of replacing. The stadium is used for a variety of events therefore the Racing Association was looking for a hardwearing, yet an aesthetic solution. The floor needed to be installed to a tight schedule to ensure their race meetings were not disrupted.
The bar and viewing area link to the outside track and therefore a degree of slip resistance was necessary. Having discussed the Perry Barr Greyhound Stadium’s requirements, RESYN specified the Degafloor QT system. The system, which is a blend of resin and aggregate, is hand trowelled and provides an exceptionally hardwearing solution. The textured finish also helps to enhance slip resistance. The association were looking to enhance their corporate identity and therefore chose to install the system in blue and yellow to match its logo.
As a popular venue, with mid-week meetings, the window to install the new floor was limited. The Degafloor QT system provided the ideal solution due to the quick curing characteristics of the MMA resins. Within just 2 hours of installation, the floor was fully cured and ready for the Speedway event due to start late that afternoon. The total area of 350sqm was completed within three days.
Craig Thompson, Maintenance Manager for the Stadium commented, “We have waited for a number of years to be given the go-ahead to refurbish our floors, and it has been well worth the wait. The floor was laid in the tight schedule that we set out due to our racing times. RESYN worked with total professionalism and skill even under the pressures of our schedule. From initial contact through to post-installation I am extremely pleased with RESYN as a whole and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.”
