Going the distance – flying 8,000 miles to install a school gym floor!

October 19, 2015 | By

Never say that McKay Flooring are not committed to bringing their services as one of the UK’s leading sports flooring companies to the four corners of the planet! Having recently shipped a container of our unique Whisky Barrel flooring to California for installation in the Google HQ we have also travelled to the Falkland Islands to supply and install a new vinyl gym floor for the Mount Pleasant Primary School on the Falkland islands.

Sports Flooring

Logistics included flying all the subfloor and sports floor materials, adhesives and installation equipment (plus our two sports flooring installation operatives) by military air craft the 8,000 miles to the Falkland Islands  – nothing could be left to chance as there was no ‘nipping back to the office’ should we run short or required any additional materials.

The School chose Gerflor Taraflex vinyl sports flooring for the 90m2 gym area. A hard wearing surface suited to the rugged conditions on the Falklands.  The works required included levelling the subfloor, installing the vinyl sports surface and installing the sports and court lines.

Here at McKay Flooring we are proud to offer our services as a premier installer of  Vinyl Sports Floors throughout the UK and far beyond when asked!
