The right sports floor – an important factor for a successful Sports Hall
Regardless of the sports floor being used by children, youth, joggers or elite sportspeople, it's very important that the installed floor meets your requirements. To make the choice of a sports floor as effective as possible for the intended user group it is important to consider the following factors:
The floor has to be designed to suit the appropriate needs of the user in order to protect the body's ligaments and joints.
The floor must provide the correct amount of friction. This is important in order to assure fast and safe movement.
- Life Expectancy
A new sports floor is a big investment and should have a long life expectancy.
The floor has to be durable and easy to keep clean.
Three types of Sports Flooring
When you talk about sports flooring you start from three different types:
Point-elastic Sports Floors: a soft coating, often a mat over a hard surface, for example concrete. Recommended for smaller sports halls, nursery schools and activity areas.
Area-elastic Sports Floors; a hard coating, for example wood installed on top of a flexible sleeper construction (underfloor). Recommended for sports halls with a focus on basketball when you want the best possible ball rebound you can get.
Combined-elastic sports floors: in this case the floor has a flexible sub construction in combination with a point elastic coating, for example Taraflex sports mat. Recommended for all types of gymnastics as well as sports halls adapted for any other exercise.
Inspections of Sports Halls
At Unisport, we can also help you with Sports Hall inspections to make sure they are kept in the best possible condition to prevent costly ongoing repairs, as well as accidents. The inspections are done by our own certificated inspectors who have extensive expertise and knowledge within this area.
