Athletic flooring is hard to miss when you enter a gymnasium or other athletic facility and even more visible when you sit in the bleacher stands. The floors are not just plywood and maple attached to a concrete subfloor. Athletic flooring is technical and continuously evolves to meet the demands of today’s athletes and athletic programs. Floors are designed into systems for specific functions or sport events. They are available in many materials and systems depending on your usage.
Wood gym floors are the most common for their basketball performance characteristics. A well-designed floor and sub system will provide the highest combination of shock absorption for the athlete’s joints, foot slide characteristics and highest ball bounce for fast play.
Poured urethane athletic flooring is a fast-growing technology replacing many wood gym floors today. It is most common in multi purpose gyms and athletic centers, field houses and elementary schools. It has the advantage of performance characteristics similar to wood floors plus the ability to be used for many sporting and non-sporting events. We have athletic flooring for every need – High performance, multi sport purpose, safety, shock absorption, ball bounce, durability, foot slide characteristics, aesthetics, impact resistance and more. Some clients want their athletic floor priorities to be safety and anti fatigue properties. Other clients look for the fastest, highest performing playing surface for their competition floor.
Seamless rubber floor
Seamless or poured floors, consist of a cushioned, shock-absorbent underlayment in combination with a strong, flexible polyurethane top layer with an abrasion resistant top coating. Seamless floors are designed as a multi-purpose sports surface with point elastic properties. The thicker the underlayment, the higher the shock absorption will be. This is the toughest multi-use flooring on the market with shock absorption characteristics.
