Wood Floors for Handball

Sprung Floors for Indoor Handball courts

When choosing the best floor for an indoor handball court you need a floor that allows players to perform at their best, it has to be safe, easy to maintain and long lasting.

Handball players ask a lot from the floor. They must be able to trust it to have the right level of slip resistance so they have complete control as they move fast around the court.

Safety is important too. An indoor sprung handball wood floor must be shock absorbing to protect the players from impact injuries and falls. The right level of shock absorption enables players to perform at their best.

Handball is a fast game therefore the floor must have a uniform colour so the court lines can easily be seen. Junckers 22mm solid hardwood sports floors are ideal; they are available in a choice of grades, selected for uniformity of colour.

The standard measures shock absorption, surface friction and visual characteristics, along with vertical deformation and ball bounce.

Junckers has a wide range of area elastic floor systems that comply with EN 14904 categories A3 and A4.

Sub-construction: The foundation for your handball court

Sub-construction refers to the underlying structure that supports the playing surface of a handball court. The sub-construction of a handball floor plays a critical role in the overall performance and safety of the court. A well-constructed sub-floor and sub-structure provide a stable foundation for the playing surface, ensuring that the court remains level and does not warp or buckle over time. They also help to absorb shock and reduce the impact on players' joints, helping to prevent injuries.

At Junckers you can choose between a wide variety of sub-constructions that will fit any need you might have.

Easy cleaning and maintenance of your handball court floor

Maintenance of a Junckers handball court is simple. On a daily basis, it is more than enough to use a scrubber-dryer machine with a low dosage of water. To keep the floor in optimal condition, we offer maintenance products such as resin remover, degreaser and mild soap products.

Additionally, we produce our own sports lacquer. The lacquer is approved in accordance with the European sports standard EN 14904 and has a high ability to bond with the existing surface. This means that only a light screening of the floor is needed before refreshing with one coat of our sports lacquer. If years of hard wear require a more comprehensive refinishing, it is possible to sand the floor down for complete restoration. If a sports floor is regularly maintained, sanding down to bare wood is rarely necessary.

Solid Hardwood Handball Flooring - Certified wood and caring for the indoor climate

Junckers only use wood from forests managed in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way. Planting new trees as old ones are cut down is one of the characteristics of sustainable forestry. To protect the climate, we strive to use wood harvested as close as possible to our factory. This is why our raw wood is mainly sourced from forest areas in Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Poland.

Junckers achieved Chain of Custody certification in 2006 and has since been able to offer PEFC certified products. In 2010, we also achieved certification under the FSC® scheme.

Furthermore, we have a wide range of wood flooring and woodcare products that carry the Danish Indoor Climate Label. The Indoor Climate Label is your guarantee that the products do not have odours or chemical substances that can adversely affect the air quality in the room.

Junckers solid hardwood floor systems are ready to use as soon as they are installed as they are factory-lacquered. This makes them fast to install and cost-effective, and the installer and builder can progress quickly with the project.
