Long-lasting Resin Flooring: About The Project

With the capacity to hold 34,988 supporters, the Riverside Stadium is the home of the Middlesbrough Football Club.

The main area of concern for their flooring solutions was for a long-lasting resin flooring that’s able to remain strong and robust.

About Middlesbrough Football Club

Based in North Yorkshire, Middlesbrough FC is a football club with a long history. Formed in 1876, they have played at the Riverside Stadium since 1995, their third ground since turning professional in 1889.

Acrylic Resin Flooring

Not only did the stadium require long-lasting resin flooring that looked aesthetically pleasing, but it also needed to remain resilient to the millions of footfalls.

The industrial flooring needed to be installed quickly and would be able to handle being cleaned up after 30,000 people, 40-50 times a year.

Making the wrong flooring decision would have proven a costly operation to resolve for the football club.

To ensure peace of mind, we opted in showing the club an example of Acrylicon flooring that we installed 15 years ago in Norway.

Although the flooring was over 10 years old, it remained as good as new and was incredibly easy to keep clean.

We spent time discussing the different features of Acrylicon flooring, highlighting the fact that all systems came alongside a fast curing and installation time to ensure the project will be done quickly.

We also emphasised the longevity, several aesthetically pleasing colours, and a non-stick surface that club could adopt.

The hygienic resin flooring the club opted for was one that prolonged the floors lifespan and one that was robust.


The Results

A long-lasting resin flooring that’s both hygienic and durable was at the heart of this project to withstand the high levels of footfall at Middlesbrough stadium.

In addition, due to the flooring being used by many – the acrylic resin flooring is now aesthetically pleasing as it’ll be one of the first things the fans will see.

In a short period, 4000m.sq. of Acrylicon Flake System flooring was laid at approximately 1-2mm thick. The overall construction process of the Riverside Stadium took only 32 weeks.

Now, 24 years and over 200 million footfalls later, the acrylic flooring is still performing the precise job that it was bought for, without one penny spent on maintenance.

Looks As Good Today…

“Middlesbrough FC Stadium installed the Acrylicon Flake resin system throughout their stadium concourses and walkways in 1995. To date, they have had over 10 million footfall on their floors and have spent little or no money on maintenance. The floors continue to be resilient, hard-wearing and easy to clean. They also look smart and show no sign of ageing, which is quite unique for a resin floor that is over 20 years old. Entrances have been treated with extra slip resistance for added safety. The floors continue to perform as they did from day one; they don’t show any signs of ageing and cope with a lot of traffic from the public as well as pallet trucks and scissor lifts.”
