Itec has visitors jumping for joy

Described as the ‘biggest’ and ‘best’ indoor play and party venue in the land, Doncaster’s Astrabound centre has expanded with an exciting new Go Bounce trampoline park, treating kids and adults to new decorative and acoustic vinyl flooring in the process.

The recent renovation meant over 600 square metres of flooring were required, the project costing over £500,000 and creating in excess of 200 jobs for the local community. This has resulted in fun and exercise being brought to groups of all ages, visitors experiencing Itec Silento Salzburg 691 and Concept Woods Tavel 631 designs along the way. The former champions stone’s intricate nuances in icy grey colourway, while the latter introduces the look of golden oak with all its knots, grains and swirl marks.

Salzburg, found within Itec’s Silento stable, was selected for communal areas thanks to its 18dB of sound reduction, helping to limit the noise experienced in what is a busy environment. Upstairs in the canteen, Tavel and its Hyperguard+ PUR protective layer ensure a stunning aesthetic is achieved without the maintenance hassle of true wood, chosen from the decorative Concept Woods range. Both Silento and Concept Woods are available in two and four-metre widths, another string to Itec’s bow allowing for fewer joins, a better aesthetic and less potential failure hotspots.

Trevor Wharton, of Trevor Wharton Carpets, Scarborough, explains his choices:

“We have worked with Itec on a number of projects and to this point they haven’t let us down. We had no hesitation in selecting from the Silento and Concept Woods collections, these floors ticking all the relevant boxes for the Go Bounce expansion: easy to care for, sound-reducing and set to stand the test of time.”

Playing as much on their practicalities as their striking aesthetic, Go Bounce’s new floors are just one in a series of Itec installations being carried out across the county. The selection of both Silento and Concept Woods demonstrates the versatility found in the brand’s portfolio; whether acoustic, decorative or safety flooring is selected, these heavy commercial-rated options are set to impress over a sustained period.
