Volleyball, badminton, dance classes, PE……..Sport halls are specially designed to take a beating, but even the toughest floors need a little TLC sometimes. Here at Tom Gavin Tiles and Flooring, we specialise in installing and maintaining top quality sports floors that with the right care, can last a life time.
Building new Sports Halls:
A wooden sports floor is the perfect choice for your venue. Not only are they longer lasting than PVC or urethane counterparts, but they also require less maintenance and re-coating. Wooden sports floors, like most wooden floors need only a daily sweeping to look their best, compared to chemical treatments and daily washing for PVC and Urethane floors.
Wooden floors are also considered to be the “gold standard” for sports like basketball and volley ball, and are an ideal option for dance-based sports. This means wooden sports floors are the perfect choice for school and community sports halls alike.
Sports halls are often battened or “sprung”, which means they are installed over a layer of foamed battens. This gives good cushioning and impact protection, which is why our sports halls are so durable. Depending on what the hall is being used for, the finish of the boards can be tailored to provide the ideal amount of protection and slip-resistance.
Installing or maintaining a new sports hall is the perfect way to get maximum use out of minimum space- a good floor can be used safely for a myriad of purposes, from aerobics to Zumba. But all these different uses mean that every floor is going to wear differently, and may need a little help to look its best and be safe to use. We have the tools and experience to rejuvenate a worn sports floor- from a total re-fit to a sanding and re-finishing, to the refreshing of line markings-just call us for a quote!
