The Private Box and VIP Betting areas of the Turfontein Race Course have recently been re-shod using Traviata’s “IsoCore” – Swiss Oak Bern flooring.
Key to this installation was the technical innovation offered by the new IsoCore technology. Firstly the “Drop-Lock 100” system allowed the more than 650m2 of flooring to be laid in less than three days. The added lightness and rigidity of the IsoCore board also meant that no floor preparation was necessary before laying the new floor – another big time saving.
The second unique aspect of IsoCore is the exceptional dimensional stability of the board. This combined with the particular site conditions where the temperature is controlled and there is no direct sunlight, allowed for the floor to extend over 55m without the need for any unsightly expansion profiles. It is a real jackpot for the designer to be able to achieve this degree of “flow” throughout the project.
The third leg of the Turfontein Trifecta is the IsoCore surface. The new natural emboss offers a surface which looks authentic, is 100% waterproof and will be very easy to maintain for years to come.
All in all it really is worth a day at the races to see the fashion and understand the payout associated with flooring of the pedigree of Traviata’s IsoCore range.
