Synthetic athletic floors have come a long way since they were first introduced in the 70s. Today’s synthetic floors are not only durable and multi-purpose; they are now designed with performance and safety in mind. Available in several different material types, thicknesses, and compositions, CBA Sports can help you determine the synthetic system that is right for you.
As with any technical installation such as synthetic floors, expertise and experience are vital in assuring the job is done right. CBA Sports has been designing and installing synthetic floor systems since 1992 and is certified by our product manufacturers to give you peace of mind that your job will be done right the first time.
Synthetic floors can be classified into three distinct categories:
- Sheet goods – These systems are sometimes also referred to as rolled goods and can consist of a rubber or vinyl surface with a variety of backings. The seams are either chemically or heat welded depending on the system to ensure a uniform installation. These floor systems can provide years of low maintenance play and multipurpose durability and come in both a wood faux and solid color option.
- Full pour urethane – This process is comprised flow applied polyurethane installed in layers or “lifts.” The durometer or “softness” of the floor can be tweaked by the thickness poured and the type of urethane used. This installation type will provide the facility with a monolithic, seamless floor system that is preferred by many facility managers.
- Hybrid systems – Pad and pour systems essentially take from both the sheet good and poured urethane categories to combine one system. By adhering a recycled rubber base mat then applying a poured urethane lift, this system gives the cushioning that our customers desire along with the durability that they require.
