Hardwood sports floors: Unmatched durability with a natural touch
Hardwood sports floors are unmatched in terms of durability. Renowned for its toughness and resistance to damage makes hardwood the ideal choice for high-impact sports and frequent use. It has a natural touch that provides a natural feel underfoot which is why hardwood is commonly used in basketball courts, dance studios, and fitness studios.
Versatile design and aesthetic appeal
With the ability to be finished in a variety of ways, hardwood flooring can accommodate the needs of any sport or fitness activity. The wood adds a natural and attractive look to the sports facility, making it more inviting and appealing to athletes, fans, and guests
Junckers wooden sports floors are easy to maintain, clean and refurbish. On a daily basis, the floor only requires sweeping or a machine cleaning using as little water as possible.
SPORTS FLOOR SAFETY AND PERFORMANCE
The standard relates to both safety and sports technical properties and the most important key factors are described below.
Correct friction is important when ball players move rapidly on the floor, and the ideal friction rating is between 80 and 110. A friction value less than 80 makes the floor too smooth, and above 110 makes the floor too rough.
The floor’s ability to withstand rolling loads is important for example where trolleys and retractable seating are used. Test results display whether the floor can withstand a rolling load of 1,500 N (approx. 150 kgs).
The floor’s ability to absorb shock depends on its ability to flex when exposed to a dynamic load. Test results display the floor’s vertical deformation in mm when exposed to a dynamic impact equivalent to that of light jogging.
A shock absorbing floor minimises the risk of injuries. Testing measures the percentage of impact energy absorbed by the floor when landing a jump.
A good ball bounce increases the ball control and the speed of the game. Test results display the rebound achieved by the floor as a percentage of the rebound measured on a concrete floor.
JUNCKERS OWN TEST PROGRAMME
In spite of the good intentions of the European standard, there are no demands concerning strength and durability of a sports floor. Therefore Junckers has chosen to integrate two additional internal tests for evidence of these properties.
This test is conducted on all Junckers class A4 floors. The floor is exposed to a series of controlled, dynamic point impacts of 3 kN (approx. 300 kgs) no less than 100,000 times, which efficiently simulates the equivalent of 25 years of normal use.
Point load testing
The demands on the floor’s ability to withstand point loads may be increased significantly when the sports floor is used for exhibitions, concerts and major sports events and where retractable seating is moved across the floor. These demands are simply not considered by the EN Standard. Therefore, Junckers sports floors undergo rigorous tests in order to ensure durable and versatile floors.
