Benefits of MaxMat+ and MaxFlor+ for hockey arena flooring

These are the main benefits of rubber flooring for hockey arenas:

  • Durability. MaxMat+ and MaxFlor+ are particularly effective for hockey arenas because of their high abrasion resistance. It is incredibly difficult to cut, mark or scratch, making it a valuable and durable material for areas with heavy foot traffic over long periods of time;
  • Versatility. Rubber is an extremely versatile product and can be used in many areas of an hockey arena: hallways, rink perimeters, players’ and referees’ rooms, players’ benches, in the lobby, and common areas of the arena;
  • Resistance. These rubber surfaces can withstand the heavy impacts of hockey sticks and skates. Their durability makes them the ideal choice for any arena!

  • Anti-skid. By installing a rubber floor, hockey arenas can reduce the risk of accidents due to its non-slip properties, especially in wet and slippery conditions;
  • Reduced noise transmission. The remarkable elasticity of rubber acts as a sound absorber when skates and hockey sticks are hit, absorbing reverberated noise;
  • Ease of maintenance. Cleaning and maintaining your rubber floor is easy and simple! For regular maintenance, simply scrub with a mild, PH-neutral soap, then use a damp mop or microfiber cloth to remove all soap residue. And, if you have a very large surface to maintain, a self-cleaning machine can do the job in no time.
