Berlin Intermediate School
Area: 9,900 sqft Tarkett Omnisports Vinyl Flooring
Installation: Abacus Sports Installations Ltd.
As a part of the Worcester County Public School System in Maryland, the Berlin Intermediate School is now the proud proprietor of a beautiful Tarkett Omnisports 6.5mm vinyl athletic floor. This new floor replaced the existing 20+ year old vinyl composition tiles that made up the original gym floor.
As specified in the contract for this project, Abacus first had to remove the old VC tiles before we could begin to prep the sub floor for the installation of the new Tarkett sports vinyl floors. Once the tiles were removed, Abacus then had to clear away the remaining adhesive left over from the vinyl tiles before we could begin the installation. This is a very important process, because if all the old adhesive his not completely cleared away, then the new floor will not properly adhere to the ground.
Once these preceding steps were complete, we could then begin installing Tarkett’s Gold Maple Omnisport 6.5mm sport vinyl flooring. This Tarkett floor offers vastly improved sports qualities as compared to VCT, and the Berlin Intermediate School can now proudly claim that they have a proper sports floor in their gymnasium, complete with a logo of the school mascot.
