Sport Floors Presented From Junckers

Sport Staduim Flooring

The ultimate sports floor must encourage optimum performance and safety whilst being easy to maintain. Based on 22 mm solid beechwood boards, Junckers has a full range of flooring systems that all comply with international standards and norms. Promoting maximum performance, Junckers sports floors are designed to deliver shock absorption, resilience and ball bounce, making them perfect for ball sports, aerobics, dance, gymnastics and many other indoor sports.

At the same time, the durability of the floors - combined with specially developed sports finishes - offers superior friction qualities and therefore excellent protection against sports injuries. The range of floor systems includes multi-purpose and high-impact batten systems, portable floors and low elevation floating floors designed specifically for refurbishment projects. Many buildings used for sport often play host to other events such as theatre, conferences and concerts. A Junckers sports floor can be designed to support very high loadings, such as portable grandstands and Bleacher seating - giving the client unsurpassed versatility.

Sports, drama, dance and performance spaces and multi-use halls. It is government legislation that sets the standards for these types of floors. It is a lot more than just specifying "a sprung floor".

BSEN14904: 2006 was introduced in July 2006 to set standards for all indoor sports flooring. This supersedes BS7044 Part 4 which is now obsolete. All floors designed for sporting or dance use must conform to this new standard. All Junckers sports systems fully conform to this new standard.

Solid hardwood floors are designated within the new standard as Area Elastic Floors which provide spring resiliency and shock absorbing qualities that are required for sports and dance used to minimise injury from activities such as jumping or moving. If the floor is too hard then the athlete or user will be exposed to early fatigue and aching joints through to more serious leg and back injuries.

Other performance characteristics such as vertical deformation ensure that the floor is not too tiring to run on yet still absorbs these forces.

Ball sports such as Basketball demand a high and fast-ball response which is also a major performance characteristic covered by the standard. Slip resistance or level of friction is vital to ensure easy turning or sliding yet maintain integrity without slipping.

The floor must also take into account other non-sporting use such as heavy loads. BSEN14904 is part of document EN14904 which is a high-level European-wide standard aimed at raising the performance criteria of sports floors and separating the various types of flooring systems available in the market. The standard has 4 separate sections and is specific about the performance factors for each material. The new standard shows how each type of flooring will perform against each others. Point Elastic Vinyl floors, Mixed Elastic, Area Elastic wooden floors and Combi-Elastic Wood/ Vinyl floors are all included.

Junckers floors fall within the Area Elastic group either in A3 or the higher A4 classes. Point elastic vinyl floors for instance and for obvious reasons, cannot offer the same shock-absorbing and resiliency characteristics as hardwood area elastic ones. An example of these differences between the various flooring products is clearly shown in the following graphs. The best sports floor surfaces will always be positioned to give the best shock absorption and vertical deformation characteristics yet still exhibit great ball response.
