Wood Floors For Indoor Sports

Posted in Leisure By Solidwood Company

When choosing the correct floor for an indoor sports hall, complex or gymnasium, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of factors that need to be taken into account.

Price alone isn’t the only deciding factor, usage, durability, sustainability and maintenance all have just as much influence on your final decision. That’s why it’s so important you know exactly what’s available to you in terms of materials and fitting.

If the space you’re working in has a concrete base, then you’ve already ticked the first box! We can offer a hard wood flooring solution that meets British and international standards for indoor sports floors. 

We feel that it’s important that as a supplier that we can also recommend fitters, which is something we’re happy to do for all our clients. Our Hard Canadian Maple flooring is perfect for sports halls, it's finished with industrial strength lacquer and is very hard wearing.

We recommend regular maintenance using the correct, associated product to remove scuffs and damage. For more information on how to maintain your solid wood flooring in your sports hall visit the Sport England website. There you will also find industry standards, as well as advice and planning tools!
