Rosehill Sports & Play and Flexidal Rubber combine for state of the art installation
Rosehill Sports & Play and Flexidal Rubber joined forces recently to bring to life TUOHREM, a unique artwork by award-winning Belgian contemporary artist Nick Ervinck. The project, at a new retirement home in Meerhout, Belgium, has created a place for residents to enjoy and relax in, as if they are within an enormous painting.
As the artwork needed to create a feeling of flowing, organic colours, reminiscent of the ripples created by a pebble dropped in water, Rosehill TPV was the ideal solution for the courtyard installation. With 24 standard colours, and its soft, tactile qualities, Rosehill TPV rubber granules not only met the installation’s artistic requirements, but also its functional ones, as Rosehill TPV is specially formulated to deliver an extremely durable and hardwearing finish.
Jan Franco, Managing Director of Flexidal Rubber, said: “What Nick has achieved with this immersive piece of art is amazing, allowing the residents to continuously rediscover the courtyard over and over again. We’ve been using Rosehill TPV granules for many years and knew instantly that they would be perfect for the installation. With the shapes, bright colours and its soft, tactile finish this work of art is ideal for residents of the retirement home, who are delighted with it.”
Commenting on the installation, Mandii Rayner-Hey, EMEA Business Manager for Rosehill Sports & Play said: “It’s great to see Rosehill TPV granules being used in such a positive, innovative project. As an interactive piece of art TUOHREM highlights the flexibility of Rosehill TPV rubber granules across a wide range of surfaces. In spite of the adverse weather conditions they faced, Jan Franco and the team at Flexidal Rubber have again delivered and excellent installation and helped to bring Nick’s vision to life.”

Sportovní podlahy Zlín joins Rosehill TPV global partner network
“We’re impressed by Rosehill TPV’s innovative products and are delighted to be working with them as their partner for both the Czech Republic and Slovakia,” said David Doan of Sportovní podlahy Zlín. “The highest quality materials are a crucial prerequisite for the exceptional quality of our work. When we saw the test results and the superior UV resistance Rosehill TPV’s rubber granules achieved, it was an easy decision to partner with them.”During 2015 Sportovní podlahy Zlín has installed approximately 6,500m² of sports surfaces, using 76 tonnes of TPV granules across a range of projects, most notably the installation of a rainbow running track in the town of Líbeznice. David Doan said: “This is our flagship project using Rosehill TPV granules and we are very proud of it. The installation teams have all been very positive about using Rosehill TPV coloured rubber granules and have not experienced any issues.”
In order to incorporate Rosehill TPV granules into sports designs and projects across the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Sportovní podlahy Zlín has had four different track systems tested by The Institute for Testing and Certification (ITC). All the systems passed their very strict criteria for sports installations and have been approved:
• TPV SPORT 10mm – a single layer permeable 10mm TPV system for multipurpose fields, school/urban playgrounds and athletic tracks using 1-4mm TPV.
• TPV SPORT 13mm a single layer permeable 13mm TPV system for multipurpose fields, school/urban playgrounds, athletic tracks using 1-4mm TPV.
• TPV SPRINT 13mm – a double-layer (10mm + 3mm), permeable spray coated system for school running tracks using 10mm recycled rubber combined with a 3mm layer of spray coated 0.5-1.5mm TPV • TPV SPRINT 40mm – a hard elastic sub-base/shock pad made up of approximately 25 mm PU binder, SBR granules and gravel combined with TPV SPRINT 13 mm.
David continued: “We’re currently in the process of testing Rosehill TPV’s rubber granules for use in the installation of children’s playgrounds and are already starting to work with venue and facility designers. We feel that we can be very competitive in this market too as Rosehill TPV’s 1-4mm granules are stocked in 24 standard colours, while EPDM producers tend to offer just three colours – red, green and blue as standard. Plus, all Rosehill TPV colours offer a better UV stability at a very cost effective price which of course will provide our customers with a better opportunity of choosing more vibrant and durable surfaces without the usual cost limitations. We’re looking forward to even greater collaboration with Rosehill TPV in 2016.”
Mandii Rayner-Hey, EMEA Business Manager for Rosehill’s Sports & Play division added: “This partnership further extends our presence across Europe. Like Rosehill TPV, Sportovní podlahy Zlín is a forward thinking business focused on delivering quality products and service. By working with Sportovní podlahy Zlín we shall enable facility designers across both the sports and play markets to deliver more innovative and exciting designs.”
Mandii continued: “2015 has been a very good year for Rosehill TPV as more and more businesses have recognised the inherent properties and benefits of using Rosehill TPV within sports, play and leisure installations. It is evident by how well it has been received that we are offering the industry a more UV stable granule with excellent ageing properties, and a competitive price.”
Rosehill launch TPV Assured at FSB2015
TPV Assured is an anti-counterfeit system that has been added to Rosehill TPV for brand protection. This innovative covert technology secures the integrity of the genuine product and the instant detection of fakes.
A built-in identifier is incorporated during the manufacturing process to the full range of TPV colours and ensures that an imposter can be quickly uncovered. Clients and architects can trust that when they specify Rosehill TPV for its high quality and unique material properties, our legitimate brand has been used.
Invisible to the naked eye and lasting the lifetime of your installation, the TPV Assured system is only identifiable with one of Rosehill’s detection units.
No one else has the know-how to manufacture this unique rubber. If you are offered TPV it will not be the genuine Rosehill TPV unless it was manufactured by us in the United Kingdom and is clearly labelled on the bag.
TPV Assured now gives you the peace of mind that you are using The One & Only Rosehill TPV.
