Model: Athens 50
(Area-elastic sports floor)
Model Athens is a real Gold Medallist. This sports flooring system was installed for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games in the "Faliro – House of Handball” competition venue with a Taraflex Sport M as the floor finish. Although being a budget floor, the systems high performance is outstanding and both official representatives and players were impressed.
Model Athens consists of two components: the HARO elastic layer and two layers of load distribution panels, which should be laid onto an even sub-floor. The slab should be level in accordance with DIN 18202:1997-04, Figure 3, or it must be levelled subsequently. This can be done, for examply, with dry or liquid levelling compounds. The panels are made of high-quality Northern Birch plywood. The elastic layer is laid out loosely over the entire hall, then the load-distribution panels are glued and stapled together.
Subsequently, the synthetic surface is glued to the load-distribution panels. The construction height of model Athens is only 38 mm and therefore the perfect choice for renovation projects. Athens fully meets the requirements of the German DIN V standard 18032-2; April 2001, EN 14904. It is subject to the quality control RAL GZ 942 and a national technical approval (“bauaufsichtliche Zulassung”) has been granted for this product.
