Virgin Active in Islington, which is open seven days a week and features a modern gym, swimming pool and spa facilities, caters for the whole family with a crèche, specialist programmes and junior memberships. One of 11 Virgin Active clubs in central London, it has been completely refurbished throughout to a high specification.

We installed our highly engineered Marcato toilet cubicles in the new washrooms and changing areas as part of the refurbishment. The cubicles feature a special bespoke design commissioned especially for Virgin Active using Corian edging and Formica Microdot Laminate to give a unique textured finish. As well its flush front design and rebated finish to ensure division panels and doors met edge to edge, the Marcato cubicle doors were fully extended from floor to ceiling for maximum privacy.

Our Concerto integrated duct panel system, which was manufactured in solid grade laminate, not only helps to create a smooth finish but is also easy-to-clean and allows for ease-of-access for any future planned or reactive maintenance. Both the Marcato cubicles and duct panels were specified in the same soft sandstone colour while the bespoke Corian vanities with individually shaped Corian basins were manufactured in white, keeping within the project’s neutral colour palette.

The newly refurbished changing rooms also feature our Mezzo Aqua shower cubicles. Manufactured from toughed glass and designed with the leisure industry in mind, Mezzo Aqua provides an elegant solution for shower areas. The glass infill panels were screen-printed in a crisp white rather than the standard green tint to tone in with the rest of the changing area.

For the special child-friendly washroom facilities, our Frutti toilet cubicles from our children’s range proved the perfect solution alongside special low-level sinks. The cubicles, which were manufactured in solid grade laminate for durability, were specified in a colourful blue and green scheme. The free-standing Frutti toilet cubicles feature floor mounted brackets for extra durability and security and are designed with low height doors and smooth rounded edges to provide a fun washroom solution for younger children.
