PCL Solutions, an industry trendsetter, has always been at the forefront of introducing many innovative solutions across various industrial sectors.

The introduction of Human Meditek plasma sterilization and first ever Mobile Incineration—Mediburn (a state-of-the-art sterilization method for hospitals and medical waste incineration), the Fuso pyramid tea bag machines, metal detectors are among many such innovations, presented to the market with the aim of proving nothing but the best to Sri Lankans.

Thus, in keeping with this ethos and venturing to further diversify their expansive product portfolio and identifying a dire need in the industry, PCL Solutions introduced a range of innovative flooring products to Sri Lanka. Accordingly, PCL tied up with Herculan—one of the most accredited manufacturers of flooring products from Holland to introduce a range of modern flooring products for Tennis, Badminton, Basketball and play safe flooring for kids’ play areas.

Speaking about the latest introduction, Director of PCL Solutions, a member of the MJF Group, Thushantha Karunanayake mentioned about the passion they have to identify areas that are niche and where they could contribute in developing various industries by leveling up their knowledge and setting higher standards in each sector they represent. The flooring solutions were launched due to the increasing number of injuries seen and children being affected by playing on tar courts and also to prevent long-term injuries.

The Gateway College collaborated with PCL Solutions in constructing the first ever FIBA (International Basketball Federation) approved courts in Sri Lanka with the objective of providing state-of-the-art sporting facilities to students while ensuring safety.

Herculan flooring solutions are known for their safety standards and minimizing injuries on the field. Under this project, two outdoor basketball courts, in Gateway College, Colombo and Gateway College, Kandy were constructed. Further, the fully-fledged indoor sports complex of Gateway College, Dehiwala—a multiple complex comprising of netball, basketball and two badminton courts was refurbished using Herculan products.

Commenting on this initiative, Harshana Perera, Headmaster of Gateway College, Rajagiriya said, “We at Gateway always pay attention to improve our facilities and making sure that students excel in sports. More importantly we want to ensure that the game can be played safe, which is why we thought of improving our courts to minimize injuries.

“There is immense interest among students for sports activities such as basketball and we believe that sports too must adopt and evolve with new technology. Schools must look at it in a futuristic perspective. There is a responsibility for schools and institutions in making sure that children are free from injuries while engaging in sports. In that sense I think Gateway has taken the lead and I believe other institutions will also follow.”

The floor of any sports complex—be it indoor or outdoor—plays a vital role in facilitating a favourable environment for an individual to excel in the sporting activity he/she engages in. Hence, it is imperative that attention is paid to choosing the correct flooring material when constructing the sports complexes. Herculan sports flooring solutions deliver advanced safety features, as opposed to tar courts eliminating the risk of injuries due to slips or falls.

Herculan outdoor sports floors are eco-friendly and multi-functional with point-elastic properties. Running seamlessly across a surface, they add an elegant finish with vibrant colours. Due to their high quality standards, these floors have been approved by ISA Sports, Olympic Committee of The Netherlands and The Netherlands Sports Federation, FIBA and IBF to be used as a multi-surface for all outdoor and indoor sports. The surface is non-porous and therefore is hygienic and easy to clean. Further, the floors are made to have a high tensile strength, tear strength and elasticity and are durable.
