Construction of sports floor in Saint Bernard School

The current building is the result of a modern remodeling of the old Saint Bernard Hospital, which was the first and the only hospital in Gibraltar. The school, considered the best gifted in Gibraltar, houses sixteen secondary school classrooms, library, thematic rooms, sports court, indoor pavilion, auditorium and underground parking.

JBS Gibraltar Ltd., the main contractor includes the construction of a sports court in the works and also has our specialised services to propose and install the sports floor on the concrete built track.

A floor was needed that also allowed the intensive use of schoolchildren and due to its characteristics prevented the appearance of injuries. This floor also has to be comfortable and technically optimal for the exercise of sports and games.

Among the proposed options, the Pulastic Sika Comfort Court 50 System was accepted. This floor has an optimum degree of slip resistance without excessive friction that can cause kinks. In addition to its elasticity beyond being comfortable, it protects the user from long-term injuries (repetitive microtraumas due to impacts on rigid surfaces), something very important in growing children. The Pulastic Sika Comfort Court has very good sound absorption, thermally insulates and is perfectly uniform, which allows for good bouncing and rolling behavior. It also resists fading caused by sunlight and is stable to changes in temperature and humidity. Very important note is that it is applied without joints, thus avoiding wet spots where fungi and molds may appear.
