Some Situations Call for Economy and Solid Performance. Some Situations Call for Robbins SportWood.

Sportwood by Robbins.

  • Sportwood is a highly durable, stable surface made from edge-grained cut Northern Hard Maple. It’s well suited for a variety of activities, from competitive team sports to dance and yoga to stage productions—anywhere performance must be delivered with an eye toward economy.
  • Since 1982, and with millions of square feet installed, Sportwood is a favorite of churches, YMCAs, schools and recreation centers across the country.
  • The unique square-edge design of Sportwood provides the same life expectancy of standard tongue and groove maple strip, and with proper maintenance, can last the life of the facility.
  • Robbins Sportwood systems can be used in combination with Robbins Pulastic for facilities requiring the performance and practicality of maple and synthetic surfaces used together—a true multipurpose and multifunction solution.

Comfort, Safety and Performance in a Versatile System.

  • Engineered continuous subfloor for dimensional stability.
  • Subfloor supported by resilient EPDM Bio-Pads™, for long-term shock absorption and vibration control through changing environmental conditions.
  • EPDM Bio-Pads are available in several configurations and designs to “tune” the floor system to your desired level of shock absorption.
  • Sportwood surface is assembled with genuine,
    edge-grain cut, Northern Hard Maple—the preferred surface for basketball, volleyball and other indoor sport activities.
  • Sportwood Ultra Star is DIN-certified and exceeds all six DIN 18032-2 criteria for ball bounce, shock absorption, deflection, area of deflection, rolling load and surface friction.
  • Subfloor supported and cushioned by Robbins’ Zero/G™ Shockpad, providing consistent support, shock absorption and uniform ball bounce.

Uniformity in an
Economical Sports Floor.

  • Sportwood can be directly applied over concrete or old poured-in-place urethane floors for a low cost, low profile upgrade to the floor. (See your local Robbins Authorized Dealer for restrictions on usage and need for removal or encapsulation of older urethane floors.)
