World Cup Stadiums Find World-Class, Multifunctional Stonhard Floors

Stonhard is proud to have installed floors in two of the stadiums that will host portions of this year’s highly anticipated FIFA World Cup tournament.

Maple Shade, NJ, June 19, 2010 --( Stonhard is recognized internationally as the leading manufacturer of seamless floor, wall and linings systems. Testament to this is the new Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, South Africa. This world-class facility is a host stadium to the current and highly publicized 2010 FIFA World Cup soccer tournament. The stadium boasts an iconic design, including a grand arch and unmistakable silhouette, and internally, Stonhard’s long lasting floors outfit two of the complex’s busy industrial kitchens.

StonCor Africa, Stonhard’s affiliate in South Africa, installed Stonhard’s Stonshield UTS floor system in the kitchens for high performance. The floors won’t crack or shift due to fluctuations in hot or cold temperatures and will stand up to constant wheeled equipment and foot traffic. The floors’ seamless, easy to clean surfaces ensure that bacteria will not compromise sanitary conditions and their textured finishes can help prevent slips and falls.

Decision makers and stadium planners required a decorative finish to mesh with the sophisticated design of the stadium. Stonshield UTS met all criteria and the results were overwhelmingly rewarding for stadium management; so much so that StonCor Africa also completed similar work at Soccer City Stadium, in Johannesburg, South Africa, which is also a World Cup host stadium.

StonCor Africa and Stonhard offer floor systems for other stadium areas such as concessions and restrooms, as well as public spaces, including concourses, ramps, retail operations and restaurants.
