Luxury vinyl tiles and carpet tiles from National Flooring Distributors were installed at a premium gym in Craigieburn, Victoria as part of a renovation project.

Designed exclusively for women, Fernwood Fitness offers group fitness classes, personal trainers and other health services. To meet the demands of the surging membership, the gym decided to renovate the flooring in specific areas to ensure optimum performance in conjunction with the use of equipment.

A busy gym demands a multipurpose floor – the flooring choice not only needs to withstand the daily rigours of heavy equipment but also provide an attractive and calming environment for the gym’s patrons to exercise, rest and recover.

To meet their objectives, the gym decided to first upgrade the rest and waiting rooms in August 2019 using NFD Illusions Grey Gum vinyl planks. Featuring a soft tone and calming vibe, the vinyl flooring was selected to harmonise with the modern furnishings and artwork.

Being extremely resilient, the flooring is durable with a unique anti-slip backing, waterproof properties and a commercially graded wear layer that allows the floor to stand up to many years of heavy foot traffic and still look its best while also adhering to safety and hygiene standards. 

The weight and multipurpose areas were also renovated using Arizona Black on Black carpet tiles. The flooring choice had two objectives: it needed to withstand the use of heavy equipment as well as provide optimal impact absorption to protect the user’s joints during any kind of adapted exercise such as Zumba or boxing.

The unique high density construction of Arizona Black on Black carpet tiles provides protection against heavy loads and sliding movements of fitness equipment. Graded for commercial use, Arizona carpet tiles also assure longevity.
