Pulastic Sports Floor
Makoura College is located in Masterton & home to approximately 300 students. Their existing 600m² gym facility was built in the 1980’s & had the original vinyl flooring which was very much showing its age. The vinyl flooring was in a poor state of disrepair with splits, tears & general delamination throughout.
The College did extensive research in available sports flooring options & ultimately decided to run with Sika Pulastic 110 Eco due to its all round qualities. The gym is also largely used by the wider community for a variety of events so the ability to facilitate multiuse was of prime importance.
Works commenced in October 2017 with the uplift of existing vinyl flooring with a Dingo scraper followed by diamond grinding of the slab substrate. The Pulastic 110 Eco consists of 9mm thick Regupol rubber which is adhered to the slab with Tackly adhesive. The top wear surface consists of a 2mm thick, liquid applied polyurethane coating complete with a water based polyurethane top coat over.
The coating is then completed with the necessary court marking which are set out & painted down between two taped lines. The Makoura line markings are busy consisting of basketball, 4 x badminton, 3 x volleyball & beep test lines.
The school have noticed the immediate benefits of Pulastic sports flooring & are extremely satisfied with the end product.
