Among a range of innovations at the new Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre, Life Floor has introduced a flooring inlay in the children’s aquatic play area using an inlay featuring Australian wildlife.
The aquatic playground uses 12 vibrant Life Floor shades – terracotta, pomegranate, goldfish, sunshine, sandbar, sandstone, ivory, seafoam, turquoise, iceberg, aviator and ocean – in a unique pattern captures a local organic rock formation making it an exciting, colourful and safe environment for children to play.
The Life Floor Design Studio fine-tuned the conceptual design created by Williams Ross Architects that was inspired from the nearby organic rock formation. The curves between the 12 different colour changes – which was important to the Designer’s intent – was made possible with Life Floor tiles as they are easily cut to form a flowing, seamless pattern.
Commenting on the project, Grant Burgess, Managing Director, Life Floor Australia & NZ, stated “a terrific feature of Life Floor is its amazing array of colours and this installation displays over one-third of our colour palette.
“The curved design certainly took time to cut and install but the finished product is certainly going to excite youngsters – especially the hopscotch court and the array of Australian wildlife tiles.”
Another innovation is the hidden impact pad at the base of the slide runout which uses a thicker Life Floor tile to further cushion the flooring while the new Centre is also the first installation using Life Floor’s new library of inlays featuring Australian wildlife.
With the new Centre marking the 50th Life Floor installation since commencing in Australia nearly five years ago, Burgess points out that more facility operators are now seeing the range of benefits this cushioned, slip resistant foam rubber tile system offers to improve safety and cleanliness around aquatic surfaces.
Built by ADCO Constructions, the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre aims to be Australia's first zero emissions aquatic centre.
