Our high performance InstaSport SP18 sprung sports floor was installed at the new Life Arena sports hall in Uppsala, Sweden.
This resilient, impact energy absorbing system uses specialised, environmentally-friendly sports cradles, manufactured from recycled rubber crumb. It has a 60 year guarantee.
This high standard sprung system meets the requirements of EN 14904 and achieves the highest A4/C4 category for area elastic and combined elastic sprung flooring, which protect athletes from injury.
Timber battens were placed in the rubber crumb cradles and the versatile system could then be accurately levelled and adjusted to the required floor height. This overcame any uneven areas in the sub-floor and also avoided the need for messy levelling screeds. The sprung undercarriage was then overlaid with 18mm plywood and finished with a Graboplast Extreme 8mm sports vinyl floor covering.
Designed, supplied and rapidly installed by Velox Track & Field AB, this 1,100m2 sprung sports floor is extremely durable, requires very low maintenance and will help all those using this impressive new sports facility to avoid injury.
The sports hall will play host to a variety of different sports, including floorball, a type of floor hockey with five players and a goalkeeper. This is very popular in many countries and originated in Sweden in the early 1970s.
