Gerflor to provide floor for ninth consecutive Olympic Games

Gerflor will provide the playing surface for the London 2012 Olympic Games
Lausanne, Switzerland, July 26, 2012 - Gerflor and FIVB have signed an agreement which will see the company supply courts for the volleyball tournament during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Taraflex is the most widely specified sports surface in the world and has been selected for nine consecutive Olympic Games from Montreal in 1976 to Beijing in 2008 for indoor surfaces like handball, volleyball, badminton and table tennis.

Gerflor will be present at the Olympic Games for the 10th time in a row and will provide a complete solution: manufacturing, delivery, installation, technical assistance and dismantling of the courts for all volleyball, sitting volleyball and handball competitions.

Ten courts will be installed in the legendary Earl Courts arena, a Global Exhibition hall built in the 1940’s in London, by our technicians.

A test Event took place in July 2011 and Gerflor installed three surfaces. The Test Event gave FIVB and Locog all guaranties and proved that Taraflex Sports Flooring will be adapted and a great success for the Olympic Games.

Gerflor floors are the most recognized and enjoyed surface by Top Volleyball nations, players and coaches for their global sport performance. Gerflor guaranties the athletes the most oustanding and safest surface to play on.
