An Introduction to Sports Flooring
When searching for a new floor for your gymnasium, weight room, or multipurpose room, understanding what you’re looking for is incredibly important. There are many different options on the sports flooring market, and knowing what makes them different from one another will allow you to make the choice that’s best for you. That begs the question: what exactly is sports flooring?
In short, a sports floor is a performance surface that is suitable for physical activity. These floors tend to absorb more shock and provide more cushion on the feet than typical household and commercial floors. We measure the performance of a sports floor using several factors. These factors include shock absorption, vertical deformation, linear friction, ball bounce, and rolling load resistance, to name a few. The standards for these factors are set by organizations like the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) and the German Institute of Standardization (DIN).
The Unique Types of Sports Floors
Each sports floor type has its strengths and weaknesses. Each floor also serves a different purpose, whether it be indoor sports, outdoor activities, weight training, running, or any other physical activity. Our links at the top right of this page explain several of the floors we offer, and you can click them to learn more about what each flooring type offers.
Choosing the right floor is a long, tedious process that requires a lot of thought and consideration. Our goal is to educate so that you can make the best choice for your facility. If you have further questions about sports floors, fill out our contact form below or gives us a call at 717-560-8050.
