AIR CHANNEL STAR

Wide-body, low-profile, engineered sleeper anchored uniformly to concrete substrate for enhanced stability.

Engineered sleeper enhances performance, flexibility and uniformity and provides dramatic improvement over softwood subfloor components.

“Posi-Anchor”™ built-in depth stop prevents shockpad over-compression, providing uniformity and stability.

Optional 7/16″ (11mm) resilient EPDM Bio-Pad,™ for shock absorption and vibration control.

Continuous subfloor provides uniformity and strength for large bleacher loads and portable backstops.

DIN-certified - meets or exceeds all six DIN 18032-2 criteria for ball bounce, shock absorption, deflection, area of deflection, rolling load and surface friction.

FLOOR SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY

Continuous Subfloor

Continuous Subfloor technology creates a consistent and uniform playing surface that is ideal for facilities that have heavy equipment or loads that could impact the floor. A Continuous Subfloor minimizes the risk of damage to the floor surface and subfloor under exposure to excessive weight.

Sleeper System

Robbins Sleeper Systems feature the classic “sleepers” beneath the maple surface, a gym floor design that originated in the early 1950’s. Sleeper Systems can be an economical option that also provides resiliency that can be tuned with various pad options for comfort and performance. The sleeper design also allows proper airflow beneath the maple surface to minimize entrapment of moisture due to flooding or other water leaks.

Anchored Resilient

Robbins Anchored Resilient gym floor systems are permanent floor systems that are anchored to the substrate. Anchoring a sports floor ensures stability and a uniform playing surface that is less likely to have “dead spots”.

FIRST GRADE

SECOND GRADE

THIRD GRADE

Highest grade is the clearest, most uniform in appearance and is practically free of all defects. Slight shadows and color variations may occur with the use of some finishes.

The most common grade has more variation in color than 1st grade. Clear or white boards can be mixed with amber ones. Slight streaks and knots are admitted, but not on the ends or edges of the strips.

This grade presents a greater variation in color and contrast, accentuates the wood grain and enhances design options, including the Boston Square® option.
