Bolidt Synthetic Products & Systems, throughTillberg Design & SMC Design, to supply flooring for cruise ship 'Norwegian Breakaway'.

Tillberg Design and SMC Design have selected the company to supply flooring for Norwegian Cruise Line’s (Norwegian) newest ship, Norwegian Breakaway. Many of the ship’s main public areas will be enhanced by Bolidt’s subtle and functional surface shades, the designers say.

NCL Aqua Park-Main PoolBolidt, known as the deck and flooring specialists, is supplying 16,500m2 of surfacing for Norwegian Breakaway, including Bolideck® 525, a seamlessly applied, skid resistant and shock absorbing deck covering system, or Bolideck® Future Teak.

Anders Lund Rasmussen, Tillberg Design Senior Architect, Project Manager, says that Norwegian company requested a soothing colour scheme for much of Norwegian Breakaway’s outside area on decks 16 and above. He says the relaxing tones offer subtlety in leisure areas typically characterised by bustling activity.

At the new ship's NCL Vibe Beach Club, he continues, “The contribution made by Bolidt is highly visible. For some of the areas surrounding the aft pool, the challenge was to identify a durable, easy to clean surface that also offered a realistic rendering of a beach. This includes a dappled effect, but the same subtle background colour is used for the lined running track. Bolidt materials are also flexible enough to be delivered in grass-like green to cover the mini-golf course and basketball court, the latter surrounded by a granulated, textured grey that evokes concrete.”
