Serradells Sports Center, Spain

Poolside security and comfort with Altro safety flooring

Altro Aquarius

Serradells Sports Centre has 4,000 members and 350,000 users per year. The centre has two pools: one indoor and one outdoor. There are also squash and tennis courts, a gym, saunas, a whirlpool, bowling alleys, meeting rooms and a bar / restaurant.

The Serradells Sports centre needed a continuous, slip-resistant surface for the pool area, that was also modern and aesthetically pleasing.

Marc Magallon, Director, Serradells Sports Centre, said: “The pool was 25 years old and required a complete refurbishment. We needed a floor that was comfortable underfoot and could be laid over the existing tile. We chose Altro flooring because of the good references and results.”

The project was undertaken by Suport Enginyers S.A., a company dedicated to civil engineering and building.

Silvia Marquillo, from the technical building section of the company, said: “Due to a problem of leaks on the lower floor, PVC flooring was installed in the beach pool areas, to make the refurbishment easier and allow us to install over the existing ceramic tiles. We needed a waterproof, slip-resistant flooring, with a good aesthetic, that would be easy to install so we could meet deadlines.”

The flooring in the pool area was replaced with 1,000m²  of Altro Aquarius in Dragonfly. Altro Aquarius was chosen to meet all safety requirements. It provides optimum lifetime sustained slip-resistance in wet and dry environments. It’s also easy to clean, with Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR technology, meaning it’s at the forefront of safety floor cleaning.

For Marquillo there are strong arguments for choosing Altro Aquarius: “Safety, with shoes and barefeet; hygiene; the decorative options and easy installation. It installed easily and quickly, with a good finish.”

Altro Aquarius was installed several months ago. Marc Magallon’s experience has been very positive: “I would recommend this flooring without hesitation, for its attractive and warm look and feel.”
