Arena worked with Flowcrete South Africa to find a wear resistant and durable
floor coating for its events venue.

Being the largest four-star indoor event
location in South Africa, the Heartfelt Arena comprises eight venues, with the
ability to host 4,000 guests in a cinema setting, 1,800 in a banquet setting
and 8,000 guests standing. 

After suffering fire damage, the venue required
refurbishment, starting with the flooring and Flowcrete South Africa was called
upon for expertise. 

With a vast venue comes huge flexibility in
terms of how the space is used – the venue can change overnight from hosting a
music concert with extremely high footfall to an exam hall with specifically
spaced-out chairs and tables. 

Thus the arena needed a flooring solution that
was versatile, easy to clean and extremely hard wearing. FlowSport from
Flowcrete South Africa was the chosen system for the venue hall. 

FlowSport is a composite surface, designed and
fabricated by Flowcrete South Africa to provide a vibrant and flexible surface
for use in indoor sports and events venues. 

The material, installed over the 3,600 m2
area, provides a hardwearing, abrasion resistant and seamless finish that
maintains a cushioned effect underfoot so as to take impacts in its

This was particularly pertinent to Heartfelt Arena, as
dragging, dropping or wheeling furniture around on a regular basis would
certainly take its toll on lesser floors. 

Luckily, the joint-free surface also means that
the floor can be quickly cleaned, with no joints or gaps in the floor where
dirt or germs could be trapped. in addition, accidental slips and trips over
uneven joints can be avoided.

The cushioned and flexible coating provided by Flowcrete South Africa also helps
with acoustics, so music concerts hosted within the space would also benefit
from the flooring. 

FlowSport was chosen in Mid-Grey for the venue,
helping to maintain a neutral base for the space, enabling various guests and
event planners to use the area to its full potential.
