Urmston Leisure Centre

Courtcraft were invited by ISG Construction to evaluate and survey an old, worn Granwood sports hall floor to give recommendations on how or if it could be refurbished. The location, an exisiting sports centre in Urmston that was getting extended and refubished was local to us here in Manchester. From what we understand, the original centre was built in the 80s and so the Granwood floor looks to have been down for over 30 years.

The sports hall floor covers an area of 613m2 and does not look to have had any surface maintenance on it for a long time, with much of the Granguard lacqeur being completely worn away. Areas by doorways and along the old damaged skirting were in particularly poor condition. That said, we believed that with repairs and the right sanding treatment the old tired floor could be brought back to life.

Courtcraft were selected to carry out the agreed works consisting of surface repairs, a full removal of the old play surface back to fresh Granwood tile material, coating the new surface with Grandguard lacquer and then painting in new court play lines. The sports hall perimeter was finished off with Beech sports skirting and new aluminium thresholds.

The work done by Courtcraft really shows how an old tired and worn floor can be brought back to life looking as good as when it was first installed. Whilst the Granwood sports floor is not sprung like performance timber floors, its durability over time is second to none. If you want to dicuss this project or a Granwood floor that you have that is in need of renovating then please give our team a call on 01942 881 500 or email at info@courtcraft.co.uk
