Work on the flagship £10.8m Pencoed Primary School has been completed, with the school bell ringing for the first time at the start of the Autumn term last year. For the flooring, the school turned to international specialist Gerflor to deliver a range of fit-for-purpose, future-proof solutions. Installation was undertaken by Cardiff-based Floor Furnishings.
Visually striking floor designs articulate the assembly hall and other shared spaces
The range of Gerflor products specified is extremely varied and includes the award-winning Taralay Impression Control safety flooring and Taralay Impression Comfort vinyl flooring, as well as further safety flooring products Tarasafe Ultra and Ultra H2O, Mural Calypso shower wall, and 300-square-metres of Taraflex® Multi-Use sports flooring.
The flooring combines high levels of safety and durability with good aesthetics
Gerflor’s Tarasafe Ultra H20 was the ideal solution for changing room and showering areas. Intended for traditional barefoot spaces, it also provides a shod solution for those areas where wet flooring conditions can be an issue.

With over 70 years of experience, Gerflor has honed its expertise to produce the highest standards of safety and durability, coupled with stunning, beautiful designs that are both inspirational and eye-catching. In 2016, the company won the CFJ/CFA Product of the Year category with its Taralay Impression Control safety flooring range.
Jason Burton MCIAT, principal architectural assistant at Bridgend County Borough Council commented, “We have used Gerflor many times and were delighted with the outcome. We had numerous discussions with the head teacher, and the colour and finish selections were co-ordinated with a lot of the loose furniture options that the school selected. Overall the result has been very well received.”
