Action (MFMA) – Hardwood sports flooring




Recreation centre



Hardwood maple sports floor systems are the most traditional athletic surfaces, in part because they have been in use since the invention of basketball in 1891. This flooring is certified by the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA), an organisation which ensures the conformity of the hardwood flooring and that it meets the established standards. Originating from maple trees with a closer and more uniform grain, which gives it a higher density and makes it remarkably strong and extremely durable. Additionally, its resilient characteristics make it perfectly suited for sports usage.

These flooring systems are designed to enhance the natural shock absorption quality of maple hardwood. They offer what we call “area elasticity”, an essential feature needed for sports and other athletic activities. It is therefore perfectly suited for basketball courts in gymnasiums for primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, recreational facilities, squash and racquetball courts, aerobic exercise rooms, dance studios, church and religious facilities, family life centers and many other multi-purpose applications.

These specially designed systems are engineered to provide a uniform grip and traction while still offering the other necessary sports surfacing qualities such as resilience, durability, flexibility, and easy maintenance.

  • Comfortable and safe
  • Shock absorbing structure underneath the floor


Floating systems are exactly what they sound like, they “float” over the concrete slab, and are not mechanically fastened to the concrete in any way. Floating systems are typically recommended for installations where system movement is anticipated. Generally, floating floor systems are more budget friendly. The main advantage of a floating floor installation is that it does not puncture the vapor barrier installed on top of the concrete slab. Through subfloor components and various elastomeric pads, these system’s key benefits are shock absorption and resiliency. However, for large areas, they do not provide the stability of fixed resilient systems and are not suitable for heavy rolling loads such as bleachers. With older lumber sleeper styles and dimensions, the system can sometimes be susceptible to dead spots because of vibrations. As a general rule, it is recommended that no fixtures, equipment or bleachers be anchored through floating sports flooring systems and into the concrete slab.


Fixed resilient systems are mechanically fastened to the concrete slab and have a combination of components that allow varying degrees of additional resiliency within the subfloor system. Fixed resilient flooring systems are typically recommended for locations where system movement is not anticipated or desired. Combining features of both floating and fixed systems, fixed resilient systems provide the stabilizing benefits of an anchored subfloor and the resiliency of floating systems. This type of system is ideal for large areas with heavy rolling loads such as bleachers and offers exceptional athletic performance. Generally, this is the design that excels at meeting today’s performance standards; MFMA-PUR, ASTM F2772, EN 14904, and DIN 18032.
