InstaSport Flooring

Sprung flooring for sports and dance floors

InstaSport’s versatile, sprung floor systems are ideal for all indoor sports flooring, dance floors and leisure applications. When combined with most proprietary sports wood, sheet flooring or seamless polyurethane surfaces, the finished floor is fully compliant with EN 14904, the minimum standard for indoor multi-sports flooring in Europe.

There are three types of sprung sports sub-floors available from InstaSport:

Sports Cradle and Batten System
Comprising special rubber crumb cradles, manufactured using recycled tyres, and timber battens. This system is particularly versatile and, being adjustable on site, is suited for use on uneven floors.

Sports Batten
Comprising a timber batten with a special profiled shock absorbing resilient layer, also manufactured using recycled rubber crumb. It is for use on level floors where the tolerance is 3.0mm over a 3.0m measured distance.

Low Profile System
Comprising a special profiled shock absorbing rubber crumb layer bonded to 18mm plywood. The main advantage of this sub-floor system is that it is only 28mm high and designed for installation on level floors where the tolerance is 3.0mm over a 2.0m measured distance.

All three systems can be finished with a sports wood, sheet flooring or seamless polyurethane surface.

These combined systems produce either a Combined-Elastic (Type C) or Area-Elastic (Type A) sports floor that also meets the strict criteria stipulated by many sports governing bodies, such as Sports England (see link below for Design Guidance Notes document in which InstaFloor was involved). The systems are also designed to withstand the loadings from users and equipment as defined in BS 6399: Part 1.
