When you’re on your feet playing sports like football, basketball, table tennis or netball the impact of the body with the ground generates a impact force. Rubber sports floors absorb impact forces. This means the flooring has some give which cushions the impact on the body, by reducing this fatigue and the possibility of common running injuries as well.
Rubber sports floors have been developed to reduce this impact but still allow sports equipment to bounce. sports flooring is generally designed with a 6 mm low density rubber backing coupled with a 2 mm high density top finish. This hard finish is stable underfoot and stops equipment imprinting on the materials surface. This top surface is capable of accepting court markings should you require them and the flooring is exceptionally hard wearing and is easy to maintain.
Rubber flooring is also strong enough to be used in industrial applications. Whether in a warehouse where forklifts are used, or at an ice rink where people walk about with their ice skates on. This type of material has no low density foam, but the top surface is thicker. Designed to be scrubbed and cleaned and offers exceptional wear life.
Staff who spend many hours on their feet at work benches can suffer fatigue, rubber matting can reduce this. Rubber flooring is chemical resistant making it an ideal option for laboratories and commercial premises. Rubber flooring comes in a number of different styles, from sheet to tiles. Sheet material is normally 1.85 meters wide. Tiles are 500mm x 500mm while the thicknesses varies from 2 to 5mm.
The design can be smooth, hammered, speckled or marbled. for more information please contact our team
