When it comes to football, Brazil’s Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras are amongst the elite. With 13 major titles, including 4 national cups, under their belt and an estimated value of approximately $US 500 million, it’s only fitting that the best of the best have a top-of-the-line training facility.
For their new training centre in Sao Paulo, the club’s designers turned to Rephouse to help meet the demands of keeping elite athletes in shape. Floors in high-energy, high-traffic fitness environments must attenuate noise, force, and vibration, particularly in free-weight areas. They must also be easy to clean, require little maintenance, and be designed to withstand prolonged heavy-duty use.
Neoflex high performance fitness flooring met this brief and more, offering unmatched style and functionality. The rubber flooring, which is partially comprised of recycled rubber, was laid in the team colours, offering its signature durable, slip-resistant construction and shock absorption.
Elsewhere in the centre, Neoflex REPtiles were used and inlaid with the team’s logo and agility and functional zone markings. Graphics displayed on REPtiles are fully inlaid into the floor, making them the perfect solution for the crisp, durable display of branding and other markings on gym floors.
