There are many options available to you when you’re deciding on the best gym flooring. At Sussex Floor Restoration we specialise in the restoration and maintenance of your hardwood floors, leaving them looking as good as new!
In this blog, we are going to be looking at why hardwood flooring is one of the best solutions for commercial gym floors.
The Importance of Gym Flooring
Choosing the correct flooring for your fitness space is not just all about the aesthetics, it is mostly about the practicality of the space and the safety of everyone who uses it. The purpose of a commercial gym is to provide a space where people can come to exercise effectively and safely. Any flooring that stops this from being a reality will negatively impact the performance of your business.
One simple method that could help to reduce the wear of your wooden gym floors is to introduce matting in several areas. Protective PVC matting placed underneath some of the gym equipment can help to provide extra grip as well as protecting your beautiful flooring from scratches and damage.
Wooden Gym Floors
There is no denying that wooden gym floors look great in a fitness space. However, they can become damaged easily if proper care and maintenance aren’t carried out regularly. One of the best solutions for a wooden floor in a gym is to install a layered product that is built up over a composite rubber under layer for maximum shock absorption. This flooring solution will provide the necessary strength and durability that is required in this environment, whilst also showcasing the timeless look that only wood can exhibit.
At Sussex Floor Restoration we provide maintenance packages that are quick and cost-effective. Depending on the size of your commercial gym, the maintenance coat can be completed in less than a day. The most common service that we provide is a lacquered finish, where your floor will be deep-cleaned and then cut back ready for a fresh coat of lacquer. We do this by using a light abrasive on the floor to remove small scratches, and then we apply the professional lacquer.
After serious hard use, or simply a lack of maintenance, a full restoration of your hardwood floors may be necessary. A restored solid wood floor will last 5-10 years before needing another full restoration. A full restoration of your wooden gym floors entails full sand to remove the previous finish, plus the application of a professional sealant and lacquer. We would highly recommend opting for our annual maintenance package in order to reduce your costs over time.
