Gerflors Taraflex Sports Flooring was first selected for the prestigious Volleyball and Handball tournaments at the Montreal Olympic Games in 1976.
For the 10th time in succession, Taraflex will be used at the worlds greatest sporting event, the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Through its International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) and Federation International Volleyball (FIVB) agreements and the endorsement of Taraflex sports flooring range for this top class event, Gerflor will supply courts for volleyball and handball tournaments during the Olympic Games, and for sitting volleyball for the Paralympic Games, in London in 2012.
Gerflor has once again met the two key selection conditions as an official supplier of sports equipment: being recommended to the local organising committee by international federations and being selected by that same committee for its global and tailored installation programme.
In response to LOCOGs (London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games) particular requirements, Gerflor presented a partnership solution including commitments to the quality assurance of the product manufacture, delivery, installation, full technical assistance and subsequent dismantling of the volleyball and handball courts.
The partnership agreement was signed on June 2011.
With ten volleyball courts in four different venues, eight handball courts in three venues and five sitting volleyball courts in two venues, there will be over 17,500 square metres of Gerflor sports flooring installed at these key events.
