GRIMSBY TOWN PLAYERS TUNNEL
GRIMSBY TOWN PLAYERS TUNNEL PROJECT OVERVIEW
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has lead to increased demand for hygienic surfaces throughout the workplace. Grimsby Town Football Club is no exception to this.
The football club required an upgrade to the player’s tunnel environment to help prevent the spread of the virus. Furthermore, there was an additional need to improve the wall surface in the vicinity to support the club in maintaining an environment fit for professional sport.
What We did for Grimsby town
Safety Flooring Installation – We ripped up the existing flooring and installed new Altro safety flooring, which is the most suitable solution because:
Safety – This solution was designed and tested to be appropriate for a plethora of environments. The non-slip finish of the surface aims to prevent accidents, especially with football studs on a matchday.
Hygienic – Because safety does not absorb any dirt or liquids, it is a lot easier to clean than other flooring solutions.
Durable – Safety flooring withstands heavy foot traffic. The surface will not crack or chip under stress. Again, this is ideal on a matchday with football studs.
Our Domestic & Commercial flooring division, Ludaflors, carried out this portion of the project.
Hygienic Wall Cladding Installation
We applied a new hygienic wall surface to the existing wall. Altro Whiterock made up the majority of the new wall surface. In addition, we added black skirting to the bottom of the panels to add a clean finish whilst remaining in the clubs iconic black and white colour scheme.
Moreover, two feature walls complete the design. The inspiration for feature walls is the football clubs greatest asset, its fans.
The upgrade to the tunnel environment allows Grimsby Town Football Club to benefit from:
Improved Hygiene – The new flooring and wall cladding are easier to clean. As a result, this benefit significantly reduces the risk of contamination.
Optimised Working Environment – The football club can now benefit from an environment suitable for professional athletes. Moreover, a more inspiring environment is intended to improve the morale of the playing staff and improve their on-field performance.
