Indoor Sports Flooring
Indoor sports include tennis, basketball, volleyball and wrestling. There are many indoor surfaces that can accommodate these sports. You should consider the purpose of your facility before you choose a type or flooring. Hardwood can be used in gymnasiums for volleyball and basketball, while rubber flooring is better suited for fieldhouses where other sports are played. These are the most popular indoor sports flooring types and their uses.
This hardwood is the most common type of gym flooring. Maple hardwood flooring is the most popular indoor flooring option and it is the best for basketball courts. This flooring is both durable and attractive, and can be customized with team colors or logos. Hardwood gym floors are often subfloored to absorb shock.
It is also possible for portable hardwood flooring systems to be installed so that the flooring can be removed and reinstalled easily. Hardwood gym flooring has two negative aspects. It is expensive to maintain and can’t be used for many sports.
