Groundbreaking new Altro Flexiflow resin flooring is proving popular with players at the Welsh Rugby Union's Vale Resort centre of excellence, by delivering a high level of warmth and comfort underfoot in a high-tech training environment. Opened in 2009, the £4 million Vale Resort boasts state-of-theart facilities, including three full-size outdoor pitches, gyms and hi-tech medical and training equipment. All Welsh international players selected to represent their country at any level train at the site.
Gary Lucas, from GR & RG Finishers, who installed the Altro Flexiflow flooring, explains "I knew about new Altro Flexiflow and I was confident that it would be a huge improvement, being much warmer and softer underfoot and less noisy as well. I spoke to Alan Phillips of the WRU and Gareth Skeet, the Buildings Development Manager at the Vale Resort, and explained to them the benefits of the new product. They agreed to go ahead and we selected the Altro Flexiflow 6mm acoustic version to give maximum comfort levels underfoot.
Altro Flexiflow flooring also has an acoustic option which was installed at the Vale Resort - available in 6mm thickness. This has good noise reduction properties and an enhanced level of comfort underfoot. Gary continues "Personally, I am hugely impressed with Altro Flexiflow I have never seen anything quite like it before. I will certainly be recommending it to other customers who require comfort and toughness."
