Flowcrete Australia will be presenting their brand new collection of swimming pool flooring systems at the upcoming Splash! Pool & Spa Trade Show this August.

To be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre from 1-2 August 2018, the Splash! Pool & Spa Trade Show provides the perfect platform for Australia’s pool, spa and aquatic industry professionals to discover the sector’s latest trends and technologies. 

Swimming pool venues require specialist flooring properties to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for patrons. Flowcrete’s new aquatic flooring range, Flowsports Aquatic is formulated to provide flooring solutions for multiple areas of any leisure facility. Flowcrete will be demonstrating their new flooring range on Stand 201 of the Splash! Show.

Attendees can find out how the Flowsports Aquatic range is able to optimise the floor area throughout a leisure facility. These resin coatings have been specially developed to provide decorative, safe and durable flooring solutions for multiple areas around a swimming pool, such as internal and external pool concourses, walkways, amenities, change rooms and grandstand seating zones.

Those designing and operating aquatic, leisure and recreation facilities are aware of the practical challenges of everyday operations that expose the floor to large quantities of water as well as corrosive cleaning chemicals, impacts, foot traffic and more. Additionally, the floor also has to minimise the potential for slips and trips, facilitate a sanitary environment and help to create a fun, enjoyable and energetic atmosphere. 

Flowcrete Australia’s five new Flowsports Aquatic finishes include epoxy, hybrid, polyurethane and methyl methacrylate resin formulations to meet a diverse range of demands.

For example, the decorative epoxy system Flowsports SRQ, made using coloured quartz granules, is ideal for internal applications such as pool surrounds, walkways, change rooms and amenities, while Flowsports SRQ PU can be specified for areas that require enhanced moisture tolerance properties. 

Flowsports SRQ Rapide is recommended at facilities with a very small window of time for application as it can be installed on top of most existing coatings and has a very fast rate of cure that significantly reduces the application timescale. 

The low VOC, flexible, textured, solid colour polyurethane based systems, Flowsports ID and Flowsports ED provide enhanced protection against impact, UV rays and chemicals for internal and external areas respectively. 

All the systems in the Flowsports Aquatic range create seamless and impervious surfaces that can also incorporate drainage. These properties ensure that the floor area is very easy to clean and that water can quickly wash away before it can pose a hazard.

Flowsports Aquatic floors are highly slip resistant, a critical factor in aquatic centres, with the formulation actively enhancing traction underfoot, minimising the risk of slips and trips in what is inevitably a very wet and slippery environment.
