Multi-purpose sports flooring
The right sports floor – an important factor for a successful Multi-Purpose Sports Hall
The floor in any sports or multi purpose hall will need to deliver a high level of performance in a demanding environment. It must not only offer the best and most responsive surface for the people who are using it, but it must be easy to maintain, durable and resilient.
Indoor sports floors must also be able to bear the loads from retractable seating systems and other specialist equipment without sustaining damage.
Wooden sports floors
When selecting a new or replacement floor for a considering a new multi-purpose sports hall, studio, gymnasium or multi-use facility, it is important to consider all of the activities that will be conducted in the space, what features they might require in a multi purpose sports floor, and what kind of stresses and wear the floor will be subjected to.
Junckers’ sports floors are made from solid hardwood, one of the most durable surfaces available and virtually unbeatable in terms of lifecycle costs. Junckers multi-purpose hall floors are the ideal choice for schools, colleges and universities.
With the correct care and maintenance a solid hardwood multi purpose sports floor will last for a lifetime. Our sports floors are known for their exceptional longevity - they can be sanded and re-finished eight to ten times without losing their looks or performance.

Retractable seating systems
Junckers’ flooring systems are perfectly suited for use with retractable seating. Hundreds of examples in the UK alone are testament to this fact. Our floors may be strengthened in a simple way to cope perfectly with high loads, and this leaves the sprung quality of the floor unaffected.

Easy maintenance of your sports floor
Day to day maintenance is fast and simple using Junckers purpose made cleaning products. Longer term the wooden dance floor can be cleaned and resealed to keep the wood protected.
Solid hardwood sports flooring - the best choice for the environment
But one of the reasons that so many designers and clients choose a solid hardwood floor is its life span and low life cycle costs. A Junckers dance floor can be refurbished between eight and ten times during its life by sanding and sealing it. This also makes it one of the best environmental choices. Solid hardwood is a natural material, carbon neutral, has low embodied energy, is easily recycled. It has such a long life span that its impact upon the environment is significantly less than shorter lived materials. Vinyl is derived from crude oil, cannot be recycled and so imposes a large burden on landfill. Its life span is about one quarter of that of hardwood so four vinyl floors will be manufactured and disposed of for every one hardwood floor.
The hardwood that Junckers uses is FSC®, PEFC™ or SFI certified, fully sustainable and carbon neutral, it is very easy to recycle at the end of its 60 year plus life span.
Pre-finished surface for your sports floor
Junckers solid hardwood floor systems are pre-finished, fast to install and cost effective. This all helps the installer to keep to his schedule and means that the owner will have minimal “down time” before the studio will be ready for use. A solid hardwood floor offers unbeatable life cycle costs and the initial cost will be less that a similar synthetic floor finish, with all the low carbon and environmental benefits that solid hardwood brings.
