Omnisports Diagram Omnisports 8.3 mm is a heterogeneous vinyl sports floor, meaning that it consists of multiple layers. Each layer or coating has unique function, such as increasing dimensional stability, reducing maintenance, increasing longevity, or providing sports performance and shock absorption. When these layers are combined using Tarkett’s virtually tension-free manufacturing process, the result is the ideal multi-use sports floor. The unique properties of Omnisports 8.3 mm allow it to be installed with the popular GreenLay™ system. GreenLay™ is 98% adhesive-free installation method that offers faster installation, higher moisture tolerances (92% RH per ASTM F2170), and easier recycling.

1 – Performance Protection: On the surface of each Omnisports floor is a photoreticulated polyurethane treatment with durable micro-particles that provides: easy maintenance with no stripping, protection against scratches, sole marks, rubber stains, and optimal surface friction for safety.

2 – Wear Resistance: Omnisports contains a pigmented wear layer made from pure PVC that carries a 15-year warranty.

3 – Dimensional Stability: A compact PVC layer with embedded non-woven fiberglass gives Omnisports superior dimensional stability.

4 – Structural Reinforcement: Combined with the PVC layer above, this vinyl layer forms the unique Strain-Splitting Core that is responsible for the Omnisports’ excellent indentation recovery and dimensional stability.

5 – Shock Absorbing Acoustic Foam: This foam layer has an extremely dense cellular structure, providing unrivaled acoustic performance, ideal shock absorption, and natural ball bounce levels.

6 – Perfect Adhesion: The backing of Omnisports is an engineered honeycomb texture for perfect adhesion to the subfloor.

  • Superior Sports Performance: Sports performance is a key reason Omnisports 8.3 mm is such an effective gym floor. It has Class 3 shock absorption and meets all the requirements of ball rebound, vertical deformation, and surface finish effect outlined in the ASTM F2772 standard.
  • GreenLay™ Installation: Omnisports 8.3 mm can be installed using the 98% adhesive free GreenLay™ system. This means faster installation, high moisture tolerances (92% RH per ASTMF2170)), easier recycling, easier subfloor access, and reduced cost relative to moisture barriers.
  • Consistent Surface Texture: Unlike some other vinyl flooring, Omnisports has the same embossed surface on both wood grain patterns and solid colors. This means consistent playability and the freedom to incorporate wood patterns with solid colors.
  • Easy Maintenance: The embossed surface of Omnisports is designed to provide texture without creating areas which trap dirt, reducing the need for cleaning and saving maintenance costs.
  • Fast Indentation Recovery: Any sports floor with significant shock absorption deforms at the surface under the impact of weight. This is usually noticeable when the weight is localized, like a chair or table leg. Omnisports unique structure allows it to recover faster than other vinyl flooring.
  • Fewer seams: With a standard roll length of 85 feet, Omnisports offers fewer cross-seams that competing sports vinyl flooring.
  • Phthalate-Free Manufacturing: Omnisports is one of the only resilient sports surfaces to be manufactured with phthalate-free technology. The components used to produce Omnisports are the same materials approved for food containers and children’s toys that can be placed in the mouth.
  • Healthier Indoor Air Quality: Omnisports 8.3 mm is FloorScore® certified by SCS Global Services and it is the first asthma & allergy friendly™ certified sports floor by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.  These certifications indicate exceptionally low VOC emissions as well as low allergen retention.
  • Comprehensive Warranty Protection: Omnisports is backed by a 15-year product and wear warranty plus a 10-year warranty for moisture tolerance, representing the highest level of coverage in the industry.
  • Possible Portability: In some cases, Omnisports 8.3 mm can be used as a temporary athletic surface for tournaments or special events, such as the recent Games for Hope at Montreal Olympic Stadium. For information on this type of application, contact a Tarkett Sports representative.
