Rugby world cup flooring solution
Scandal at the rugby world cup nearly threatened to overshadow the event itself, but one thing which was always going to be overlooked was the planning that went in to the flooring for the event.
The Eden Park stadium in New Zealand underwent some renovation work to prepare for the demands of the huge crowds expected throughout the tournament.
Although the stadium is used to huge crowds officials knew that being a rugby world cup venue would dramatically increase the level of foot traffic.
Another concern for organisers was the impact on neighbouring homes from such a loud event with a lot of atmosphere.
Fortunately Flowcrete were able to supply a resin floor which was durable enough to withstand the massive amount of spectator foot traffic throughout the competition without showing wear and tear.
The company also provided flooring solutions for the external areas, which required durability for a variety of weather conditions as well as the high foot traffic.
Although commercial flooring solutions always require increased durability the flooring used in premises like this must be as tough as possible to withstand such high levels of wear and tear.
