Geometrik: Easy to install sports flooring!

Geometrik offers a wide range of sports flooring solutions to meet each space’s specific requirements. By choosing the most appropriate sports flooring and with the proper preparation work, installing these floors is extremely simple.

 

7 Tips for perfect application results

  1. Before installing any sports flooring, ensure the base is completely dry, clean and free from deformations;
  2. For roll sports flooring, after unrolling, the flooring needs a resting time of at least 24 hours to allow it to flatten out and acclimatise to the room temperature;
  3. Planning is essential. Thoroughly measure the space before installation so the flooring cuts and adjustments are accurate;
  4. Estimated glue consumption is approximately 1 kg per m2 of flooring when installing with glue;
  5. If an underfloor heating system is available, switch it off 24 hours before installing the flooring and wait 7 days before turning it on again;
  6. When using bi-component glue, the mixture lifespan is between 20 to 25 minutes. Mix the glue in small quantities while installing the floor, using a suitable mixer;
  7. Flooring should be installed at room temperatures between 15 o C and 25 o C, which should never drop below 0 o C when the glue is drying.

 

Extra Geometrik tip

To test floor moisture levels before installing the sports flooring, use plastic applied to the whole base to be covered. To ensure full watertightness, close the ends with adhesive tape. The floor will only be ready for sports flooring installation when the plastic is completely dry after 24 hours. Repeat the test until this happens.

When creating and maintaining quality fitness spaces, numerous variables should be considered. Above all, a balance between user comfort and safety, profitability and durability in the space is important. It is therefore essential to choose suitable flooring for the different group classes as well as other sports activities.

 

Different group classes need distinct sports flooring!

When considering which fitness flooring to choose for different group classes, we have a range of options. Depending on the type of sports activity, flooring surface material requirements vary.

Weightlifting rooms

Weightlifting plays a role in several body-building group classes. In these spaces, heavy weights regularly fall on the floor. This requires good impact attenuation and vibration absorption capacity. Alpha Tiles meet this level of demand, providing athletes with greater safety.

 

Functional training classes

Functional training can include a wide range of equipment and exercises. This type of group classes needs sports flooring that’s strong and versatile enough to adapt to different activities. Trail artificial grass is a solution combining strength and versatility with easy maintenance.

 

Self-defence classes

weightlifting platform

How to create the best weightlifting platform in your gym

In addition to the bars and weights, the weightlifting platform is mandatory equipment for the practice of this modality. Individually at home, in gyms, or in crossfit boxes, weightlifting has been gaining a large number of fans. As it works several muscles of the body, it is a very complete exercise which is not limited to strengthening just the arms and legs.

Weightlifting (or weight training) is a highly effective sports practice for strengthening the whole body. Official weightlifting competitions are known to have started in the late 19th century, however, the origin of this modality has been lost in time, with records of its practice dating back to the oldest civilizations.

Weightlifting is probably one of the oldest sports in human history. Today, it is based on a  rigorous set of movements which intensively work almost all the muscular system.

 

The importance of an appropriate weightlifting platform

It is common for the athlete, when weightlifting, to easily drop the bar on the ground, causing a huge impact. For this reason, the sports flooring on which the exercises are carried out is of added importance. Apart from resistance, the chosen flooring must have good shock and vibration absorption.

An appropriate weightlifting platform is therefore one of the essential requirements for this type of sport. As such, this flooring solution must guarantee stability and, above all, safety for anyone doing these exercises in order to avoid serious injury.

At Geometrik, we are dedicated to the creation of sports flooring designed to provide the ideal conditions for the practice of complex exercises with heavy loads. The weightlifting platforms and muscle strengthening spaces are part of our portfolio.

A plywood structure Woodlifting - which is highly resistant, is applied in the central area intended for weightlifting. Its additional coating offers perfect conditions for traction-slider exercises for the athlete’s greater comfort.

High-density rubber tiles - Alpha Tiles - especially developed for shock and vibration absorption are applied in the side areas. These also help to minimize noise, contributing to a more comfortable experience for all users of the space.

Due to the increased needs that each space may require, there are also other sublayer solutions that can be applied in order to improve levels of isolation and protection.

 

To sum up, weightlifting is one of the most demanding activities in terms of equipment and flooring. Quality material and an appropriate weightlifting platform are mandatory in any space intended for this sport.  Talk to our experts  to find out more.

Agglomerated polyurethane foam: 5 Advantages of applying it in gyms

Gyms are spaces with high demands at various levels, especially in terms of safety and comfort. The choice of suitable flooring combined with an agglomerated polyurethane foam, for example, offers surprising advantages.

There is currently a wide range of possibilities in terms of sports flooring for gyms. Depending on the needs in each zone or room, it is possible to set up a multisport space with different types of floorings.

In addition to the sports flooring itself, it is also possible to add an appropriate sublayer for the space’s specific needs. There are several options available made from recycled rubber, agglomerated foam, or even cork. The important thing is to make the correct assessment of the requirements in order to adapt the materials to each situation.

 

5 Advantages of agglomerated polyurethane foam

5. Resistance and flexibility

Applying such a sublayer under the sports flooring is an additional guarantee of resistance. The combination of the properties of polyurethane and foam also offers greater flexibility to the flooring. All of this will contribute to a higher degree of comfort and safety, this way improving the experience for all the athletes.
