Comparison of sports floor types

The tactics of a true champion: no compromises

Aside from the various manufacturer-specific properties, there are basically two types of sports flooring: area-elastic and point-elastic sports floors. In between, there are the hybrid forms of combined-elastic and mixed-elastic constructions. The difference shows in the deformation properties and the effects on the suitability for the particular building.
