#500 Series Elite Springflex Hardwood Floor System


The most fantastic dance floor ever. Real solid hardwood flooring just like "Dancing With the Stars" floor.  Resilient for all dance, aerobic, gymnasium and sports. The unique, 100% free-floating construction of the hardwood dance floor with a cushioning suspension system enables it to be moved or reconfigured, protecting your investment and assuring future options. The factory applied multi coat polyurethane finish seals the hardwood for superior durability. This provides a hygienically safe traction coating which will not support the growth of bacteria or mildew and requires very little maintenance. This floor system is the easiest and fastest hardwood dance floor system to assemble. No nails are used and all clips are totally invisible when fitted to the back of the boards. Many owners install the floor themselves. The "Quick Clip" system was engineered to provide a simple yet effective method of installing Elite Springflex hardwood flooring over any solid level subfloor. This includes existing flooring such as concrete, clipboard, carpet, tile, sheet vinyl, ceramic or wood. Since the floor is completely prefinished, typical installations take less than two days with no fumes or odors to disrupt the operation of your facility. The floor is available for use immediately after the installation. Hardwood board width is 5" tongue and groove, 7/8" thick, 6' length and weighs 3.2 lbs. per square foot. Color is Harmony Natural Beech. *Samples are available for $25.00 each. Sample cost is deductible from any Springflex Floor System order placed within 60 days from date on sample invoice.

DIN Standards for Springflex Hardwood Dance Floor Systems


The Springflex Floor System is a high performance and low profile flooring system. The total finished floor thickness including the foam subfloor is only 1-1/8 inches to 1-3/4 inches in increased height depending on foam thickness. Springflex floors constructed with 3/8 inch foam and steel clips exceeds all world recognized DIN standards, providing excellent resilience, and high shock absorbency. The floor system has been successfully tested in accordance with the minimum requirements of DIN 18032, Part 2. Testing performed by the Otto Graf Institut. See DIN standard chart below as measured my Otto Graf Institut, Germany.

What are the DIN Standards?


The DIN standards were developed in Germany and are recognized worldwide as the best method for evaluating sports floors. The standards were developed to ensure that dance and aerobic athletes received the greatest degree of safety and performance from a flooring surface when participating in dance and aerobic exercise.

Certification Test Results for DIN standard 18032 Part II Test results as reported by Otto Graff Institut, Stuttgart, Germany

Floor TestDIN StandardSpringflex FloorMeets/ExceedsExplanation
Shock AbsorptionMinimum 53%54.20%XInsufficient shock absorption causes activity related injuries to ankle and knee joints. Correct shock absorption reduces fatigue and significantly lowers the risk of injury.
ResilienceMinimum 2.3mm2.52mmXInadequate energy return in a floor causes sore ankles and a surface too "hard" for safe, strenuous activity.
Surface FrictionMinimum 0.5
Maximum 0.7
0.5XRotating and pivoting motions create strain on joints without proper friction coefficients to minimize stress. On a friction scale of .1(ice) to .9(fly paper) .5-.7 is the DIN Standard. At .5 springflex is perfect, even providing for the demands of platform and other high impact routines.
Impact IsolationW500

W500

XWithout proper impact isolation, participants' movements can interfere with each other, creating the possibility of injury. The standard allows for 15% deflection, 20" from the point of impact. Springflex exceeds that by providing over 86% isolation at 20".
Surface StabilityMinimum 1500N1500NXProper foot stability is essential to reducing foot roll-over and other injuries to participants. This is a fundamental advantage of the Springflex floor system compared to vinyl surfaces.

#800 Multi-Flex Dance Floor


The new #800 Multi-Flex Dance Floor is the ideal solution for those who want a suspended floor with a vinyl surface. The floor installs quickly and easily. The 5 1/2 inch wide tongue and groove boards come with specially designed Evazote 50 foam strips already attached to the bottom. Simply glue the boards to each other and the subfloor is finished. When the boards are glued together they form a smooth, undetectable joint making a totally smooth, flat surface for your vinyl floor. And because the boards are glued instead of nailed or screwed, you won't feel any nail/screw heads or holes through the vinyl. Now you can apply the vinyl floor covering of your choice, either permanent or temporary. The Multi-Flex Dance Floor provides progressive shock absorption yet withstands heavy loads. The design provides even suspension on all points on the floor. This means you won't find hard or soft spots on this floor. It has been tested with 45,000 test loadings without loss of it's elastic characteristics and the tongue/groove connection in the floor has been stressed 100,000 times without damage. In short, it's designed to last. It passes the DIN 18032 Section 2 test for dance/sports floors and was approved by the Norwegian Building Research Institute. Because the finished height of the Multi-Flex Dance Floor is only 1 1/8 inches (not including the vinyl covering of your choice) it makes an excellent choice for refurbishing an existing building. Boards are 5 7/16" wide tounge and groove, 1 1/8" thick, 7' long and weigh 3 lbs per sq. ft. *Samples are available for $25.00 each. Sample cost is deductible from any Springflex Floor System order placed within 60 days from date on sample invoice.
