Outdoors and indoors - World premiere: the first portable outdoor sports floor with indoor qualities

HARO SPORTS, 12.07.2012

Rosenheim – World-wide professional athletes as well as organizers trust in the portable sports floors by HARO Sports Flooring. Now for the first time the company from Rosenheim presents a portable outdoor court for 3 x 3 basketball – which used to be known as street basketball – the number one trend sport. HARO Sports Rome Outdoor fulfils the same DIN standards as its role model, the portable indoor sports floor Rome 20. This means a force reduction of more than 53 % and at the same time a ball rebound of nearly 100%. Moreover, it can be installed and removed again within just two hours; perfect for events and sports festivals.

But the portable outdoor sports floor by HARO Sports Flooring, a world-wide leading manufacturer of portable and fixed-installed, elastic coating sports floors, can also remain installed outdoors over a longer period of time – for example on an outdoor court during summer – as it is resistant to moisture. Due to its ideal surface condition it does not get slippery, even if it rains during the game. This ensures an undisturbed playing experience.

First use at the "Sportfestival" in Munich
Could there be a better place to test a new sports floor than a sports festival? On the occasion of the popular sport event “Münchner Sportfestival” on 1st July 2012, the city of Munich invited its residents onto the Königsplatz in Munich to get some exercise. According to the motto “Be involved and discover your sport”, more than 70 sporting activities were waiting to be tested for free. The participants of the 3 x 3 basketball could feel like a pro on the court measuring 15 x 17 m. After all, the portable sports floor HARO Sports Rome Outdoor offers the same good properties as its indoor equivalent. And those are used world-wide in competition arenas for international games, championships and Olympic Games.

HARO Sports Flooring expects the new outdoor floor to be ready for serial production by the end of 2012, as the materials which were used up until now, such as wood, have to be replaced by ones that are suitable for use in any wind and weather.
