Suspended Flooring: sports flooring
Of all the different types of floors, suspended flooring is the best for our health to cushion hard falls and protect our knees from high impact activities. It is a type of floor which is raised higher than the subfloor (which causes the floor to bend and bounce).
In the design industry, suspended flooring is used and chosen for its unique qualities. Suspended flooring is usually specified for places where people are active. Ballets rooms, dance studios, basketball courts, and sports flooring are just a few places this type of flooring can be installed. It’s a revolutionary type of floor and was welcomed into the flooring industry.
Benefits of Suspended Flooring
Suspended flooring is a futuristic type of floor because of the cutting-edge technology used to create its stable characteristics. Imagine a floor with no support beneath it. It is a very usable floor system which is inexpensive, simple to install, performs well, and is also created in an eco-friendly manner.
Suspended flooring is delivered without the need to be finished on the job site. Suspended floors are also water resistant (which is another added benefit). The height it adds to your floor becomes the only main concern. Remember that it is raised and suspended off the actual floor. So you need to take this into account when making design plans.
Where to install Suspended Flooring
Suspended flooring is perfect for dance studios or gyms. You will enjoy years of fun and relief from foot and knee injuries. It is one of the best investments you can make for your activity room. Doctors agree that reducing any impact off the knees will help prevent injuries in the future. Don’t hesitate to look into suspended flooring if you engage in a lot of indoor sports.
Some of the benefits of this unique type of floor are affordability, ease of installation, resistance to water and other liquids, and most importantly, comfort.
