We have over the years developed expertise in laying new floor systems in various materials including traditional timber, composite Granwood block, the engineered board systems and the newer synthetic finishes. We can supply and fit all of these varieties and only use approved suppliers.
Installing a sports hall floor of any variety is a lengthy process, however, our team of specialist flooring engineers have the experience to guarantee a highly efficient process and quality finish. We create each individual sports hall to the specification of the client and using relevant sports federation regulations. Sports flooring has to meet visual and performance criteria for safety and performance purposes.
Types of flooring systems available:
Traditional timber installation
This style is the more traditional type of sports hall flooring. This refers to a solid wood tongue and groove option often in ‘yunkers’ beech or Canadian maple wood. This is a straight lay system, often 20mm thick. Benefits include its solid tongue and groove structure which means that it is the strongest and most durable of all the options when it comes to wear and tear. A lot of people are deterred by the cost of this flooring system, however, its longevity is its main attribute.
This is a patterned sports flooring system in a basket weave 3 by 3 block style. This system is a composite block and has huge benefits as its combats seasonal timber movement. It also had the same advantages of having a sprung timber floor system and has lower maintenance costs. It also has the advantage of being fire resistant and is very easy to repair.
Engineered sports system
This floor system is a relatively new approach to sports flooring and is a combination of steam-pressed hardwood on top of the board and a softwood joining system underneath. This alternative design is appealing from a price perspective and is a more affordable system. The timber on top of the board is steam pressed and is often harder and more durable from an impact perspective. It is quicker to install and easier to refurbish due to its level finish. This is due to the underlying joining system under the boards creating a perfect joining platform resulting in a flat uniform surface.
This is another alternative to timber flooring, that is a popular choice due to its material cost and speed of installation, this also comes in a huge variety of colours and once installed will not be susceptible to changing weather conditions.
This system is not laid on a traditional baton system is a built layer of chipboard on sprung foam causing the elasticity effect. The only downside to this being of course that we can not overcoat synthetic floor systems with lacquer nor refurbish them when they become worn leaving you one option but to replace the whole flooring system.
