Flooring: Turf guide

Thanks to the rise in popularity of functional zones, there’s been an increased call for turf. We take a look at some of the turf products being installed

Published in Health Club Management 2019 issue 9
Origin Fitness Elite Sprint Track Turf

How many installations have you done?
More than 55 in the UK in the past 12 months.

Who uses the product?
This customisable track product is available in three variations: Unlined, Edge Marked and Full Custom.

The most recent application of our turf track is the turf at the Gymshark Lifting Club Gym. It totals 33m in length and was custom branded with a large tufted Gymshark Lifting Club logo for added durability and branding.

The main colour is dark grey, with charcoal grey tufted text and edge marking to match the interiors of the space. The turf is lined by two LED strips along the full length, creating a futuristic centerpiece for the gym.

What are the specs?
The Elite Sprint Track Turf boasts high density tufting and is available in 18 colours to provide gyms with a wide and exciting range of customisation options. Standard widths for this product are 2m or 4m, and the track was engineered for the effective use of prowlers, drag sleds and other common fitness training tools, as well as other fitness applications.

The turf tracks come with a 10 year warranty against UV damage. This means it can be used outside if required.

The turf tracks come with a 2-year guarantee warranty, if used as per our terms and conditions, which includes sled work.

The Origin Elite Sprint Track Turf is designed for use with prowlers and sleds

Physical Company Customgrass

How many installations?
So far, we’ve done 29 Yards for énergie.

Who uses the product?
Physical company has been appointed to install our Customgrass product across the whole énergie fitness estate as part of its Thé Yard concept.

In the past, énergie had experienced problems due to the fact that the markings on the artificial turf were painted onto the surface of the weave rather than sewn into it. Over time, repeated use of the turf wore the markings away, making the surface look old and shabby.

Customgrass integrates the design into the fabric ensuring the maintenance of aesthetic appeal.

What are the specs?
Customgrass is manufactured using a unique tufting technology, allowing the combination of up to six colours. This enables aesthetic flexibility, creating custom-branded flooring solutions which reflect existing colour palettes and deliver beautiful, fully immersive environments.

TVS GROUP Sports Carpet

How many installations?
Over 250 installations in the UK, along with installations across Europe and the Middle East

Who uses the product?
The TVS Sports Carpet is a versatile surface used to create multi-functional training spaces in health clubs. Because of its durability, it’s ideal for sled lanes.

The product has been installed in fitness facilities in the UK, including luxury clubs such as Third Space. It’s also used in performance gyms, hotel fitness centres, rooftop terraces, wellness resorts and PT clubs.

The fully UV-stabilised version was used in the creation of an outdoor multi-functional training space at a hotel in Dubai and a custom-made roll-out sled track has been supplied to a PT facility in Singapore.

What are the specs?
There are two options; a customised roll-out track or a permanently bonded, fully integrated training area that’s created on-site. The roll-out track is typically wide enough for a sled, long enough to have a high-intensity workout and light enough to move from one area of the club to another. This is particularly relevant when there’s limited floor space. Either way customers have a variety of colours to choose from.

The TVS Sports Carpet is a needle-punched 100 per cent polypropylene surface, available in a choice of colours. The overall thickness is 10mm, consisting of a 6mm pile, fully integrated with a reinforcing backing.

A UV stabilised version is suitable for warmer and brighter climates. 50mm- or 100mm-wide lines are available in white, yellow, red and blue and these can be permanently inlaid into the surface.

Over 250 TVS Sports Carpets have been installed
Jordan Fitness Premium Turf

How many installations?
Approaching 100 over the past few years.

Who uses the product?
Norwich City Football Club. Norwich FC chose both an indoor double width sprint track and outdoor triple width track for sled work as part of a new redevelopment project for their first team and academy players.

Norwich chose to customise their turf to feature the Canaries famous green and yellow brand colours. Working with their Coaching team and sport scientists, the track was designed to suit their performance training regime and football technique drills.

What are the specs?
