Gymnasium flooring is typically designed and installed to meet the needs of volleyball and basketball courts. These sports generally prefer to play on a wood floor system specially designed for resilience, shock absorption and ball bounce to protect the athlete and to promote fast, high performance play.
Today, gym flooring has had to adapt to broader uses including other athletic sports like floor hockey and dance to community uses like events and concerts. Gym floors can be designed for a specific sport to maximize performance and play or for general use with compromises to accommodate all users. The sub floor, attachment, and top surface materials can vary to meet the needs of the users.
A proper designed sub floor is key to provide the safety, performance and durability required for decades of successful use. Top surface materials like maple, synthetic, rubber and others also affect safety, performance, aesthetics, maintenance and durability. While designs are limitless, your goals for the space will help us design a perfect floor for you.
Synthetic floors typically come in 3 different forms: pad and pour polyurethane, rubber, and vinyl, all of which offer customization of style and comfort. Pad and pours are seamless polyurethane poured over a layer of sheet rubber. The underlying sheet rubber can be of different thickness depending on the type of facility and level of shock absorption needed. Poured urethane surfaces are good choices for outdoor and indoor track flooring. They are the most durable indoor surface with the lowest life cycle cost.
Rubber flooring is another common type of synthetic flooring. Rubber usually comes in either rolls or tiles, depending on type of facility. Rubber typically has better grip, preventing sliding, making it the preferred choice for a running surface. Vinyl is an option for someone looking for the look of real wood without the cost. Vinyl flooring is incredibly durable, making it a great option for areas with high traffic.
Wood gym floors are the most common for their basketball or volleyball court 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. Wood flooring can be customized with different subfloors and finishes, allowing you to tailor your gym to the specific use of your space.
