Individual sports floor – Best performance

„Let´s get ready to roll“. What technical requirements must a sports floor meet for roller skating? It must be able to absorb the shocks from double axel, Rittberger, Flip and Co. without deforming too much at the point of impact. The key word here is area-elastic. For kindergartens it is quite different: young children pushing and shoving one another is common and when they fall their impact must be cushioned, so here the floor should be point-elastic.

There are wide and varied requirements placed upon a sports floor, not least the type of activities which it will be expected to accommodate. Each installation will therefore, require analysis of such requirements before an appropriate floor can be selected. As a result, it has made it necessary for us to develop a wide range of  quality products  which offer solutions concerning both the function of the sports floor as well as aspects relating to life cycle and maintenance costs.

At DLW we believe we have a portfolio of products that meet such rigorous demands. Our production line can produce a wide range of qualities in an array of colours. Furthermore, with a thickness of 4 millimetres, our flooring products exceed standard requirements by 25 per cent. This not only guarantees excellent wear resistance but also guarantees a product with a correspondingly long wear life. Often the greatest stress and strain that a sports floor must endure is not that which is caused as a result of everyday sporting activity but by mat trolleys or other heavy equipment on wheels moving over the floor’s surface. Particular wear is exerted by mobile stands for spectators, which when full puts enormous stress upon the floor due to the overall weight being loaded upon it. Similarly, dragging empty stands over the floor is a real test of a floor’s durability.

Due to a great variety of designs and colours you can give your floor individual character; it is even possible to decorate it with the inlaid logo of your sports club, school etc.
