Want to buy a modular sports floor?
Modular sports floors offer many possibilities. The sports-technical subfloors are used for sports at top level, but the sports floors can also be used for playgrounds and sports fields in public spaces. The floors are safe, can be assembled and disassembled quickly and easily, are suitable for (almost) any surface, can be moved easily and are easy to replace and maintain. In addition, the modular sports floors are used for various sports, such as football, hockey, tennis, pickleball, basketball (or 3×3 basketball) and handball.
Indoor hockey floor
The winter period is traditionally the start of the indoor hockey season. Hockey clubs start training indoors en masse and the artificial turf pitches remain unused. In recent years there has been a growing capacity problem because there are not enough indoor sports facilities available. Because of this trend, hockey clubs are increasingly opting for a blow-up hall or air dome. In many cases, these blow halls and air domes are equipped with modular sports floors, because the properties of these sports floors are extremely suitable for these facilities. The modular floor has a number of advantages, namely: the tiles always fit through the entrance of the hall, can be delivered in different colours, can be provided with sponsor messages and in addition, the tiles have an open structure, which makes them breathe, as it were. This should reduce noise and provide optimal ventilation. Ball speed is also high on these sports floors.
Sports floor tiles
The tiles of the sports floor have a size of 25 x 25 cm. This makes them lightweight, easy to place/remove and also easy to store. The tiles can be delivered in different colours and we also work out a lineation plan if required. We offer different types of modular sports floors, each with their own specific characteristics and properties. The subfloor is also important in determining which modular sports floor best suits your needs. In general, we can distinguish two types of modular sports floors, namely: indoor and outdoor sports floors. Take a quick look!
Standards for plastic sports floors
In January 2007, all European Union countries adopted the EN 14 904: 2006 standard. This standard includes a series of minimum technical requirements which form the basis for the development of a high-quality indoor sports floor. Within this standard, safety is one of the most important issues.
An EN standardised floor guarantees that it is safe to play sports on. The client can also assume that they are buying a durable product that will last for years.
For indoor sports floors, the most important factors to be taken into account are: impact absorption, uniform friction, vertical deformation, bounce capacity.
For outdoor sports floors, and also specifically for multisport surfaces, it is necessary that they meet the European standard EN 14877. This is a standard that regulates the specific properties of synthetic outdoor coatings. The European standard EN 14877 covers synthetic surfaces for the following purposes: athletics, tennis and multisport.
The normative tests for the flooring consist of two parts. The first part deals with the requirements for testing products in the laboratory. This is to ensure that they are capable of delivering the required levels of sports performance and player/surface interaction. In addition, it demonstrates that they are manufactured from superior materials. The second part describes the requirements for installed surfaces. This is to ensure that the sporting performance and player/surface interaction characteristics are appropriate for the intended use. For outdoor sports surfaces, the most important factors are: high drainage, UV resistance, compression, traction behaviour.
