Proudly laying the groundwork for a ‘fun house’ for youth with a disability.

When it comes to supporting communities at GH Commercial, we strive to make a difference under our Doing Better Together philosophy. One way we do that is by donating to causes in need of functional, comfortable flooring, like Flying Fox.

Flying Fox is on a mission to build connections between young people with a disability and the community through the power of fun. With youth-led, social interaction and support, they’ve been providing opportunities to have fun and make friends since 2014.

Connection through carpet

Flying Fox were able to raise the funds to purchase a house and meet increasing demand for their weekend getaways during their fifth birthday celebrations in 2019. Located in the beautiful countryside of Lancefield, Victoria, the house hosts groups of Campers and their ‘Buddies’ throughout the year.

Also on the property, the Flying Fox team have converted a large shed into an activity centre for the Campers to enjoy. GH Commercial worked with Loop Architecture to specify a carpet tile to make the space comfortable and practical for purpose.

The expansive 110m2 space required a durable, high performance flooring solution made to withstand heavy traffic and resist tarnishing. We donated two carpets ideal for active kids – designed for comfortable sitting, quiet reading and group activities.

Laying a solid foundation

Using carpets from our Choreography Collection, we combined two ranges to create beautiful transitions and defined zones across the floor.

Our Australian made Motion and Performance ranges both offer a durable 4 star extra heavy duty ACCS rating, healthier Enviro Bac® backing, easy-care stain resistance and protective Bioshield® antimicrobial control. The tiles are not only designed for high levels of activity, but create an energetic feel in an active space.

It’s been a joy for GH Commercial to be part of an inclusive program that provides opportunities for young people and respite for families in such a welcoming space.
