It’s no longer just families spending vacation time in caravan parks and camping grounds throughout Australia, it seems the biggest Caravan Park visitor increase has come about via the Grey Nomads. Yes, those baby boomers who are happily spending their kid’s inheritance and adventuring throughout Australia at a leisurely pace in their very well equipped caravans and motor homes. Since the year 2000, statistics show a 6% growth rate each year.
As a result of this change in park visitor demographics, a large number of caravan park managers and owners are upgrading and improving the standard of park facilities in an effort to attract these mature nomadic adventurers and offering a more enjoyable and rewarding camp experience. Besides making the facilities more attractive and user friendly, much thought is going into the most appropriate flooring for park amenities and common areas. Caravan Park owners and managers are now seriously considering alternative floor coatings such as epoxy and polyaspartic flooring.
When choosing the most suitable flooring, caravan park owners and managers take into account a number of considerations which include, among other things, a floor finish that looks good, is slip resistant, seamless, waterproof, low maintenance and easy to clean (a definite advantage for park cleaners). Rhino Armafloor meets all of these requirements and more.
Rhino ArmaFloor, a polyaspartic decorative seamless flooring system with added quartz chips, meets Australian Standard AS/NZS 4586 for slip resistance in both wet and dry conditions. It is the perfect solution for a slip resistant surface in shower and toilet blocks, laundries, common areas and walkways, making it safer for staff and park visitors and helping to avoid potentially costly slips and falls. It is also the reason why this natural combination is successfully being applied in a large number of residential and commercial premises.
With park owners and managers upgrading facilities and providing attractive and well designed amenities and common areas, the ever growing and well-travelled Grey Nomad will continue to return year after year and quite willing sing the praise of those caravan parks they have stayed and enjoyed. As we all know, this large group of travellers are avid networkers, word of mouth is a powerful marketing tool indeed.
