Case Study: Cardiff International Pool
As part of a recent interior refurbishment, 240m2 of Polysafe Verona PUR sheet vinyl has been installed into customer and staff areas at Cardiff International Pool to provide an attractive, fresh and safe surface that is ideally suited to this leisure environment. Located in the heart of Cardiff Bay as part of the International Sports Village, this £23m complex boasts the largest swimming facility in the UK and features a state of the art 50m Olympic pool with seating that caters for up to 1000 visitors.

Specified and installed by Leeway Carpets & Flooring in Pontypridd, a combination of Polysafe Verona colours Horizon Blue 5208 and Nightfall 5207 are laid in the extensive walkway behind the spectator seating area that surrounds the venue’s Olympic Pool as well as in an adjacent lighting room and judges’ meeting room. The circulation area involved Leeway’s skilled team of fitters installing a border using Verona’s dark blue hue which was cut in on-site, perfectly complementing the main field colour.
Darren Phillips, Centre Manager at Cardiff International Pool commented: “We are very pleased with the finished look and performance of the Polysafe Verona flooring. The colour combination is perfect for our facility and projects a refreshing yet relaxed ambience. It is important that our visitors have added safety underfoot in light of any contamination or spillages that may occur but it is also paramount that the area is visually appealing and in keeping with the design of the building. We certainly have an attractive interior space and the colours work really well for this type of environment – Verona certainly looks the part and not like your typical safety floor!”
Luke Stoneman, Contracts Manager at Leeway Carpets and Flooring adds “Our end client is delighted with the safety flooring installation. The Verona colours are great and very much in tune with a leisure environment such as this. In addition and importantly for us, the product is easy to get hold of, nice to fit and easy to cut and weld. We’re certainly impressed with the overall finish – a superb addition to the Polysafe collection.”
