Dance can be physically demanding, but a true sprung floor can reduce strain and allow dancers to focus on creating art rather than battling fatigue. Tarkett’s Inspiration provides high shock absorption, uniform response, and an optimized Dancefloor surface for grip.

Features Benefits Colors & Options

InspirationSprung floors are the pinnacle of dance surface performance and Tarkett’s Inspiration is no exception. The floor provides a high level of shock absorption, averaging 52% per ASTM F2569. More importantly, Inspiration has superior uniformity in all key performance properties. That means dancers can rely on their expectations of the floor in every location.

1 – Dancefloor Point-Elastic Surface: With Tarkett’s Dancefloor as surface, Inspiration provides an optimized level of grip for dancers with a point-elastic response that deforms only at the area of immediate impact.

2 – Uniform Structural Support: These 18 mm plywood planks provide stability and a uniform structure for resilient dance surfaces. They are made exclusively from birch, one of the most stable varieties of wood.

3 – Reliable Bonding and Assembly: Each plywood plank incorporates an interlocking tongue-and-groove edge for fast and reliable installation.

4 – Shock Absorbing Foam Cushion: This shock-absorbing cushion is 1/2” thick. In addition to providing high levels of shock absorption, it is also GREENGUARD certified as a low-emitting interior building material.

 Phthalate-Free Technology
    • Superior Sports Performance: Inspiration is a high performance dance floor specifically designed for the stage and studio needs of professionals. The floor does not have the polyurethane coating that is common to sports surfaces, which provides a surface with extra grip. It also generates a measure of shock absorption through a foam backing that reduces strain.
    • Phthalate-Free Manufacturing: Inspiration is manufactured with phthalate-free technology. The components used to produce Inspiration contain natural materials, no REACH restricted chemicals, formaldehyde and free of heavy metals.
    • Easy Maintenance: The embossed surface of Inspiration is designed to provide texture without creating areas which trap dirt, reducing the need for cleaning and saving maintenance costs.
    • Health and the Environment: Inspiration embodies Tarkett’s four categories of sustainability, providing not only superior sports performance, but stewardship of the environment and care for individual health. Inspiration uses renewable resources, incorporates natural materials and contains no formaldehyde.

  • Multi-Set Adhesive: For situations where moisture conditions are less of a concern, Inspiration can be installed with Tarkett Sports' Multi-Set Solvent Free Adhesive.
