IFC proves its worth at Sunshine Coast resort

Flooring supplied by International Floor Coverings (IFC) has stood the test of time in the high traffic zone of a leading Sunshine Coast resort.

Liz Myers of IFC confirmed the company supplied 194 square metres of IFC Platinum AntronMegaweave 280 to the site now known as Aqua Lounge and Bar (formerly known as Mel Bar) at the Novotel, Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast.

“This product has an extreme heavy duty use wear rating, very suitable for all commercial applications and is fire rated for all classes of buildings and fire isolated exits,” said Myers.

“The Antron also has Teflon soil/stain resistance technology, making this the perfect carpet for high traffic, contract commercial projects.”

The range features woven Antron in Sisal style designs with Teflon fabric protection. Its secret lies in a patented hollow filament construction with precisely placed interior channels running along the fibre’s length, minimising the visual effects of soiling without compromising wear performance.

With the flooring installed in 2008, Twin Waters’ executive assistant manager Bradley Conder attested to its durability.

“It’s held up extremely well given the amount of work it has to do. We have 125,000 guests coming to the resort every year and for 15 weeks of each year, during the school holidays, we have around 400 to 500 kids in this high traffic area. If you can think of the worst things kids get up to and multiply it by about 450, this is the kind of treatment the floor is subject to; we’re talking about food and dirt literally being ground into the floor. With professional cleaning on a reasonably regular basis, it still looks very good.”
