In this blog post, we will cover everything you need to know about Pulastic sports flooring and why it may be the best option for your sports facility.

What is Pulastic sports flooring?

Pulastic sports flooring is a high-performance sports surface that is made of a durable, seamless polyurethane material. Unlike other synthetic surfaces, Polyurethane is a resin that is poured on-site with no welds or join marks visible on the finished surface.
 It is designed to provide exceptional shock absorption, energy return, and ball bounce, making it a popular choice for sports facilities around the world. The Pulastic system is comprised of several layers that work together to provide the perfect playing surface, including a base layer, elastic layer, and top layer.

 What are the benefits of Pulastic sports flooring?

There are many benefits to using Pulastic sports flooring for your sports facility, including:

1.     Safety - Pulastic sports flooring is designed to provide excellent shock absorption, which reduces the risk of injury to users.
2.     Durability - Pulastic sports flooring is incredibly durable and can withstand heavy use over time.
3.     Versatility - Pulastic sports flooring can be customised to suit a wide variety of sports, from basketball to volleyball and more, and comes in various colours.
4.     Lifecycle – Unlike sheet materials, if the Pulastic surface is looking like it needs a new lease of life, it can be sanded and repoured. At this point, you can choose a new colour if you wish. This will bring your floor surface back to good-as-new.
5.     Performance - Pulastic sports flooring provides excellent energy return and ball bounce, which enhances the performance of athletes.
6.     Maintenance - Pulastic sports flooring is easy to clean and maintain, making it a great choice for sports facilities that see a lot of traffic.

 How is Pulastic sports flooring installed?

The installation process for Pulastic sports flooring is a multi-step process that should only be done by trained professionals. The process typically includes:

1.     Site preparation - The site must be prepared by ensuring that the surface is level and free of any debris.

2.     First layer - A base layer of material (SportsDeck and/or specialist shockpad) is installed to provide a stable foundation for the Pulastic system. Advice will be provided depending on the shock absorption required.

3.     Seamless layer - The seamless polyurethane is poured over the entire surface, which provides a joint free, flexible sports floor. The resin can be tailored to your requirements to ensure the correct hardness for your facility i.e. roller hockey.

4.     Surface layer – This layer is applied and provides the colour and wear surface of the floor system. This is an exciting part of the design process as multiple aesthetics can be achieved. This also ensures the floor meets all the requirements for slip resistance in the EN14904 standard.
