Cushioned Multi-purpose Indoor Sports Surface
Proflex Multisport is a site applied, cushioned multi-purpose indoor sports surface.
The system comprises a two-pack polyurethane adhesive, a prefabricated rubber mat, a two-pack polyurethane pore filler, a 2mm self-levelling polyurethane wear layer and a two-pack water-based polyurethane top coat.
*Varying thicknesses of cushioning mat can be supplied on request.
Proflex Multisport remains point elastic due to the resilient nature of the prefabricated rubber mat together with the polyurethane wear layer and top coat.
Proflex Multisport can be used for a number of sports and activities including badminton, tennis, netball, 5-a-side football, basketball, gymnastics, training, dance and aerobics.
The cross section (see diagram left) shows the key components in the Proflex Multisport surface system.
EN 14904 - Surfaces for Sports Areas
In recent independent tests, Proflex Multisport scored a pass in every relevant section of the standard. These included: friction, shock absorption, vertical deformation, vertical ball behaviour, resistance to rolling load, resistance to wear, specular gloss, resistance to indentation and resistance to impact.
The test results show Proflex Multisport to satisfy the requirements of EN 14904 Surfaces for Sports Areas: Indoor surfaces for sport use - specification.
The substrate is usually high density macadam, concrete or a wooden base which is of suitable specification and construction for the expected loads and activities.
The prefabricated rubber mat is then adhered to the substrate using a specially formulated two-pack, solvent-free adhesive.
A two-pack PU compound is applied as a pore filler, for the resilient and durable two-pack polyurethane wear layer, resulting in a smooth surface for the final water-based PU roll coat.
Activity lines are then applied in appropriate colours.
The materials used in these surfaces are environmentally friendly, using recycled rubber for the cushioning mat, together with solvent free adhesives and water based polymer coatings.
