25 Feb Sporting specialised flooring products
When it comes to specialised flooring such as in sports centres and/or arenas, Suntups take great pride in their flooring offerings. One of these is Suntups Hevea sports flooring by FloorworX, a two-strip, multi-stagger construction timber floor, available in one colour, either pre-finished or unfinished. The colour Beech is also available on request.
This range can be installed either on Elastilon 10mm sport or on sprung battens. Since all boards are equal lengths as well as the batten centres, this ensures that the end of each plank always sits on a batten.
In addition, Suntups Hevea sports flooring is 22mm thick with a plank size measuring 130mm by 2180mm and offers a 9mm re-surface area above the tongue, which allows for extra sanding over the years. These specialised floors are recommended for use in gymnasiums, aerobics studios, basketball courts, squash courts, school halls and other sports flooring and carry a non-slip rating according to EN 14904.
To ensure a flawless installation, FloorworX recommends using Suntups unfinished Hevea timber sports floor plank, 40-grit sanded, for squash courts as it offers maximum slip resistance. The functionalities of these flooring options ensure a floor that can withstand the amount of wear and tear that is unique to sports facilities.
