Model Helsinki is a so-called area-elastic sports floor. It must be installed on an even sub-floor. The slab should be level according to DIN 18202:1997-04, Figure 3, or it must be established subsequently. This can be done, for example, with dry or liquid levelling compounds.
The construction height of Helsinki 20 is only 40.3 mm and therefore a perfect choice for refurbishments and renovation projects. Model Helsinki provides both a high shock absorption greater than 66% for the athletes’ safety and a ball rebound of 95% for a successful game.
Model Helsinki 20 features a 18.3 mm-thick HARO sports parquet consisting of a premium choice parquet top layer supported by a top-quality plywood core layer and solid spruce finger strips. The 5.6 mm parquet top layer receives a factory-applied PERMADUR finish for a superior performance and surface protection. Helsinki 20 fully meets the requirements of the German DIN V standard 18032-2; April 2001, EN 14904 and is officially approved by the Federation of International Basketball Association (FIBA). It is quality-tested according to RAL GZ 942 and meets the requirements of ÖISS 2005.
