Grandville High School
Location: Grandville, MI
Project: MEZZANINE – 1800 sf 4mm Aktiv Thunder Gray
WEIGHT ROOM – 6000 sf AP Tile Thunder Gray, 20 inlaid platforms with Tarkett Sport Vinyl inlays
Installer: SPEC Athletic
Grandville High School looked to SPEC Athletic for a weight room that would fit their needs. The owner requested inlaid platforms because of their added safety and aesthetics. The owner did not want the maintenance of tradition wood inlays for the platforms. Traditional wood inlays need to be refinished every few years to keep looking good. They can also chip or dent if weights are drop on them. The owner still wanted a wood look, however, and went with vinyl inlays with customized logos. These vinyl inlays provided the look of wood, but with lower maintenance costs and durability of vinyl.
SPEC athletic painted The Grandville High School logos with urethane coating in a custom maroon to match the school colors. The owners wanted to make a statement with the 22’ tall Grandville “G” logo. SPEC athletic installed Aktiv PRO roll so the graphic would not be broken up by the molded line of Aktiv Pro Tile. This allows the weight room facility to exhibit the spirit of the Grandville Bulldogs athletic program.
