FLOOR SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY
The built in Self Blocking feature limits floor deflection and is designed to “bottom out” under heavy loads. When heavy equipment like scissor lifts are driven over a sports floor, the floor can only deflect or bend so much before damage occurs. Self Blocking is built into the floor at the factory level to ensure proper subfloor construction that lowers the risk of damage from heavy equipment.
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”.
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.
