What’s hot in the world of studio equipment? We round up the latest product launches

Published in Health Club Management 2015 issue 11

No club too small

The Portable Speed Track by Escape is designed to give health clubs all the benefits of its Speed Track surface but without having to install it permanently. Instructors can create a speed zone anywhere in the facility, so members can sprint, bear crawl and use the Quad Sled to develop explosive power and agility. The Portable Speed Track can also be used in studios for circuit or bootcamp classes and can be rolled up and neatly stored when training is complete.

The flooring is available in a variety of colours and Escape can create custom logos and markings to tailor the track to individual clubs. It measures one to four metres in width and up to 25m in length. The track is manufactured in the UK and is made from UVS polypropylene with a needle punch finish. It comes with a three-year warranty.

Child’s play

TVS Sports Surfaces has launched colourful safety flooring for outdoor children’s play and training spaces.

The Euroflex Sports Pavement Slabs are shock-attenuating tiles that can be used under climbing equipment or beneath outdoor fitness training machines. They feature impact protection and are tested for critical fall heights to meet high safety standards.

The tiles can also be used to create a multi-use games area, and provide a non-slip playing surface with cushioning and ball rebound.

For children’s play areas, the lettered and numbered tiles of the range allow for creative, educational floor patterns, while the products are available in a range of bright colours and stimulating textures. The range also offers modular sandpits, as well as tiles featuring animal shapes and geometric shapes – all designed to promote social interaction and imaginative play.

Designed for safety

Design, slip resistance and performance are combined in Gerflor’s latest recyclable safety flooring, which is suitable for sports and leisure venues.

A 100 per cent recyclable flooring, Taralay Impression Control flooring comes in a range of realistic wood finishes, as well as modern designs in contemporary colours.

The mix of 24 nature-inspired designs – ranging from dynamic to calming – ensures there’s something for all gym, health club and studio interior design schemes.

The flooring has a low slip risk in wet conditions and is also designed to be hard-wearing, tough and durable. It’s also compact at 2mm thick, with a 0.70mm thick wear layer and an easy to clean, hygienic UV-cured PUR surface treatment that eliminates the need for waxing and polishing.
