Sports parquet

HARO sports parquet has been approved for first-level competition and is used at Olympic Games and World Cups!

With over 50 years of experience in the manufacture, sale, installation and care of sports floors we can look back on a vast range of applications and projects - from the Olympic Games in Munich 1972 to professional basketball clubs, universities, fitness centres up to double and triple school sports halls.



Wood species

HARO sports parquet is available in four different wood species: Canadian Maple, Beech, Ash and Oak, our Fitness Series additionally in African Oak and Merbau. The factory grading displays the natural diversity of the wood’s colour and texture, thus giving a unique look.

The hardwoods Canadian Maple, Beech, Ash and Oak have proved to be ideal for the production of sports parquet. The factory grading displays the natural diversity of the wood’s colour and texture, thus giving an unique and resistant
look – the perfect choice for sports and multi-purpose applications. Wood is a natural product and reacts to changes in air humidity. The right indoor climate of approx. 40 - 60% air humidity counteracts undesired swelling or shrinking of the wood. This swelling and shrinking is reduced significantly with the HARO sports parquet, provided as a multi-layer parquet with Birch plywood base layer. Regular care according to the HARO care instructions guarantees a long life-span of the HARO sports floors and ensures the ideal performance properties in accordance with German DIN standard V 18032-2; April 2001.

Finishes

It is the quality of the finish that counts. The surface finish is the floor’s actual wear layer. It must be perfectly fitted. HARO offers two different surface finishes. The proven HARO PERMADUR Finish has ideal properties for most sports disciplines and a multi-purpose use of the hall. HARO SST Special Finish with depth impregnation was developed primarily for squash and racquetball courts.



PERMADUR Finish

The PERMADUR Finish closes the pores on the wood’s surface. Dirt and dust have no chance to settle on the smooth surface and can simply be wiped off. The factory-applied finish is particularly abrasion and scratch resistant and yet flexible. This results in a much longer life-span of the sports floor, compared to conventionally finished parquet floors. Compared to open-pored surface finishes, HARO PERMADUR Finish is particularly durable and easy to maintain.

SST Special Finish

The SST Special Finish was developed particularly for squash- and racquetball courts. The risk of slipping or sliding due to sweat drops on these courts can almost be eliminated with an SST Finish. A special sanding process ensures a perfect grip as stipulated by DIN 18038 while the depth impregnation optimally protects the sports parquet.
