For the past 30 years we have been specifying, supplying and installing sports flooring all over the UK & Europe. We have had the pleasure of installing sports surfaces at national and worldwide sporting events such as the Commonwealth Games, Olympic Games and many televised sporting events.
No matter what type of sports flooring project we are working with, our detailed method of consulting, specifying and installing remains the same. It is vitally important to us that the sports floor is safe to use and offers the users performance, whether it's a primary school child or an Olympian.
Most of our sports flooring installations happen in the education sector and the two key considerations are type of user and type of activity.
We have a range of sports flooring solutions, many of which are Sport England EN 14904 compliant. Sports flooring choices include polyurethane, sports vinyl, sports linoleum, timber sports floors, rubber crumb, rubber tiles, macadam and acrylic.
All of our sports surfaces are supplied, installed & line marked in-house and we offer a logo installation service.
Indoor sports hall flooring has been a core part of our business for many years. We have installed and refurbished many thousands of metres of indoor sports surfaces throughout the UK and Europe, all to a very high standard.
We work very closely with our manufacturing partners which allows us to offer a vast range of EN14904 compliant sports surfaces. All of our installations come with a manufacturer’s warranty and an installation guarantee by Recreational Coatings Ltd.
Our in-house teams install the following surface types; Sprung Timber Flooring, Sports Vinyl Flooring, Sports Linoleum Flooring, Sports Polyurethane Flooring, Sports Textile Flooring and Acrylic. We also offer our own developed Area Elastic and Combined Elastic flooring systems which are EN14904 compliant and come with a variety of finishes. We take into account all types of activity held in these areas including bleacher seating, roller sports and wheelchair use.
Our dedicated teams undertake each element of any refurbishment or new installation project including the sub floor preparation, sports flooring installation, game socket & post installation, skirting board installation, door cutting, trim installation and line marking. This enables a time efficient service to reduce down-time for our customers.
We fully understand the impact a good sports surface has on the users and our consultative approach will enable you to make an informed decision about the right sports surface for your facility.
This is where it all started over 30 years ago! Back in the 1980's and 1990's outdoor tennis courts were commonplace all over the UK and this formed a big part of our business. Nowadays there are less tennis courts but the MUGA is clearly on the rise.
The flooring choices for MUGA's include macadam, polymeric, textile and rubber surfaces. There are even loose lay MUGA tiles that can be installed and removed in a matter of an hour or two.
We not only install MUGA surfaces, we also line mark and install logos to finish the area off.
We understand line marking and paint application and have been doing it for over 30 years. After all, a poorly line marked sports hall can ruin the entire appearance!
As part of our service we can offer a colour dimensioned line marking drawing so you can really visualise the space.
We install game lines on all types of indoor and outdoor floors on either new or ‘old’ sports surfaces.
These game lines can either be installed on a new surface or over existing game lines to ‘freshen’ them up.
We use only the best flooring paint available on the market and a big part of our business is the testing of new products to keep up with the latest technology.
Heavy base games posts are a big cause of floor damage in many sports halls. We work with a leading manufacturer of sports equipment to enable us to supply socketed games posts which we supply and install.
At the survey stage we ensure that your sub floor and sports floor is suitable for socket installation. Our in-house core-drilling team will ensure the longevity of the sockets.
We offer a sanding and sealing service for Granwood and Timber floors. We use the very latest sanding and dust control equipment making the process safer which enables us to carry out works in term time if required.
Our initial survey will highlight any surface repairs which we will undertake prior to sanding. We only use sport specific seal coatings on our refurbishment projects and we take care to match the original seal to ensure continuity of colour and quality.
We have installed Sports Floors for the Olympics, World Championships, European Championships and UK Championships.
We are able to look after the court transportation, installation and up lift making the process hassle free for the client. Our service includes the line marking and branding of the court to really create a wow factor.
