Mats Inc., one of InstaFloor North America’s leading distributors, has recently had its Floorworks luxury vinyl tiles installed in an aerobics and dance studio using InstaLay 30hg – which is believed to be the first such installation of its kind.
The Team Super Fitness centre in Quincy, Massachusetts, chose the new InstaLay self-adhesive acoustic underlay for two main reasons:
- Being quick, clean and easy to work with, InstaLay significantly cuts installation times and costs. This meant the contractor was able to complete the installation of 2,000sq.ft. of new flooring over a single weekend rather than having to close the studio for an entire week.
- The InstaLay rubber crumb cushioning gives exceptional underfoot comfort and anti-fatigue characteristics. This produces a more ‘welcoming’ floor for the dancers and aerobics participants and a less tiring surface for all taking part – particularly the instructors who are on their feet all day.
- InstaLay 30hg with Floorworks 3mm LVTs have been tested for compliance with EN 14904 (The European standard for indoor multi-sports use). This system achieved the following performance results: Shock Absorption: 25.5%; Vertical Deformation: 0.98mm; Vertical Basketball Rebound: 100%.
The owners of Team Super Fitness were surprised by the speed of the installation, and the resulting short down time for the gym, and delighted with the finished result. The flooring contractor was also impressed by InstaLay, how easy it was to use and the amount of time and mess it saved.
