Sports floor coverings
Sports flooring is a special group of flooring systems and finishing materials for sports. It can be sports parquet, rubber, PVC or artificial turf. All of these materials have to meet specific maintenance requirements. The most important feature is its ability to withstand high stress, its anti-slip surface, safe for the lie and health of athletes, its hygienic characteristics, fire resistance, anti-abrasive qualities and service convenience. The most popular sports surface types are protective, indoor and outdoor surfaces.
OUTDOOR SPORTS SURFACES
Large part of sports facilities are outdoor sites. They are installed in the open air and are not protected from weather influences by a roof. We are talking about football fields, running tracks, hockey rinks. High-quality outdoor flooring withstands rain and snow, seasonal temperature fluctuations, and UV radiation. Significant damage to outdoor surfaces is caused by dust. It accumulates on the surface and, working like an abrasive, gradually scratches and damages the material. Outdoor sports flooring should be protected from the dust as well.
INDOOR PROTECTIVE FLOOR SURFACES
Indoor sports floors are the kay element of every sports facility. The surface material is designed to withstand the regular dynamic effects from the movements of the athletes, as well as from the use of sports equipment, and such. For all these reasons, indoor sports flooring has to meet the strictest requirements. They are durable, resilient, elastic, environmentally friendly, and have a hard surface. High-grade floor surface in halls, gyms and exercise rooms provides safety during competitions, impressive look during events and great performance during training drills.
PROTECTIVE FLOOR SURFACES
Protective sports flooring ensures that the base floor remains intact. It is used on running tracks, artificial fields, tennis courts, inside ice palaces and other buildings for public events. The surface should be non-slip, comfortable and convenient for movement. It does not require complicated maintenance. Usually it is installed right before the events, and removed after completion. This protection prevents the expensive floor from damage and wear.
