Indoor Sports Monthly – January 2015
Volume 4, Issue 4
Resiliency is a critical factor in successful multi-use flooring. It is essential to shock absorption, but also influences other functionality. This issue of Indoor Sports Monthly highlights some of the key considerations in resilient sports flooring.
Better Practices Mean a Better Future
Tarkett is renowned for its commitment to sustainability and environmental progress. As part of that commitment, Tarkett Sports’ Omnisports is now manufactured with phthalate-free production methods. The same components now used in Omnisports are approved for food containers and children’s toys that can be placed in the mouth. Contact a Tarkett Sports representative to learn more about all the other environmental innovations that are a part of Omnisports.
Resiliency in Multi-Use Sports Flooring
Multi-use sports floors that accommodate tables and chairs also need to provide shock absorption for athletes. To generate shock absorption, a sports floor must compress when an athlete’s weight is applied to the surface, but at the same time, it must recover quickly when that weight is a table leg or chair rest. Some floors manage this better than others. Take Tarkett Sports’ Omnisports flooring for example. It recovers faster and more completely than many other sports floors. Within the first hour after compression with a 200 lb. weight for 24 hours, Omnisports recovers 78% on average. In comparison, some other multi-use floors take nearly one full day to recover to the same degree. Resiliency not only equates to better sports performance, it means better multi-use functionality as well.
