TILES & ROLLS AVAILABLE
At TVS Gym Flooring, we have the widest range of studio flooring on the market with specialised and multi-use surfaces available. Whether you want a surface for HIIT and Zumba or a martial arts or dance studio, we can recommend the right flooring for your use case with a complete design and installation surface.
The most important aspect of studio flooring is cushioning. This determines the types of sport and activity that can be performed. For example, you wouldn’t practice judo on a hard vinyl surface, but you would do HIIT and Zumba workouts.
The first question we have when sizing and specifying studio flooring is what will the floor be used for? The second question is what level of performance do you want? Once we know your use case and performance requirements we can recommend a few things.
We are a leading supplier of vinyl and polyurethane (hard) surfaces and soft surfaces like EPDM rubber rolls and floor tiles. We cater for all budgets and can help you find that perfect compromise between price, performance and good looks. With vinyl surfaces we can adjust the elasticity of the surface to provide different levels of shock absorption and cushioning. This will allow you to build a studio with designated areas and we’d use markings to make these areas clear.
Traditional aerobic studios were designed for dance classes and feature some type of sprung floor system with a void however over the years industry trends have changed considerably and exercisers are using weights in these areas. Circuit training, high intensity interval training and body pump usually involve lifting equipment. It is therefore important the gym flooring surface is elastic enough to absorb these impact forces and safe enough to perform dynamic movements.
If your studio requires a hard floor that provides good cushioning, we recommend polyurethane. Polyurethane is an extremely high-quality material that is engineered for tough environments. You can lift, run, jump and train on a polyurethane floor, making it one of the most versatile types of studio flooring.
The polyurethane studio flooring we supply is EN14904 and DIN 18032-2 certified with quality assurance to ISO 14001. Put simply, the polyurethane floors we supply are the best you can get in terms of performance and resilience.
If your studio requires a softer surface, perhaps for yoga or HIIT, then we recommend rubber. Rubber is available in tiles or matting. Rubber tiles are thicker, making them better-suited to areas that require significant impact protection. Rubber matting is better for covering large spaces like dance and material arts studios.
Another type of studio flooring is foam tiles, however foam is not considered equal to rubber for commercial spaces. You are best off with rubber. Rubber is stronger than foam and much more resilient (in other words it lasts longer).
We can adjust the performance of studio flooring by changing its layers. A studio floor is usually made from two layers minus the subfloor. The first layer is a foam or rubber underlay and the second layer is the top surface. The underlay is available in a wide range of densities and these change the way the floor feels to use.
The top layer is also available in different thicknesses. A thicker rubber floor will deaden impacts while a hard surface will feel nicer to jump and skip on. The right characteristics for your studio flooring depends on what activities will be performed.
We supply studio flooring for all manner of studios, including yoga studios, HIIT studios, dance studios, martial arts studios and functional fitness studios. No two studios are ever the same, so we provide a bespoke design service. We will design your studio to meet the needs of your users with a high-performance floor.
We offer studio flooring for all manner of budgets and we have experience working on projects of all sizes. The service we provide is all-inclusive, with design, installation, recycling and aftercare included. Get in touch to discuss your project today.
