Flooring Solutions for Your Indoor and Outdoor Sport Surfaces
Few flooring surfaces are subject to the kind of intense and frequent use as sport flooring surfaces. Not only do these floors see heavy use, but they also need to look good use after use while still providing plenty of support for those who use them. They have to absorb shocks from impacts and cushion joints against injury. Sports flooring can be a major investment for athletic teams, schools, playgrounds, daycares, gymnasiums, fitness centers, arenas, cities, fitness centers and more. At Blackrock Industrial, we can help you get the sports flooring you need.

Things to consider before making your choice include:
Safety and comfort
Even a seemingly minor injury can be career-ending or life-altering. Modern flooring for sport surfaces is designed to be safe, resilient and properly shock-absorbent to protect joints from stress and injuries. Rubber-based and urethane-based flooring for sport surfaces are especially good when it comes to both indoor and outdoor flooring with minimal risk of injury and maximum performance.
Sports flooring tends to see heavy use, and that means you need something that’s easy to clean without seams that can accumulate dirt or accumulate water damage.
Floors need to be able to withstand long periods of use, scuffs, heavy foot traffic, frequent impacts and more. Rubber floors are an excellent solution for multi-purpose rooms while inlaid platforms can protect your sub-floor and your investment.
In the past, gyms were often single purpose, but today’s gyms are more multi-functional in design. Sports flooring has evolved to reflect that with materials that can accommodate everything from basketball and volleyball to pickleball and racquetball.
Blackrock Industrial Flooring Solutions
The most common sports flooring solutions include epoxy flooring, polyurethane based flooring and rubber-based flooring, and we offer all three for your convenience.
Epoxy flooring is a seamless flooring solution that resists moisture, stains and microbes and can stand up to heavy daily use. It’s easy to maintain and is available in a variety of aesthetically appealing finishes.
Polyurethane based flooring is among the most durable type of sports flooring. It’s popular in multi-purpose sports facilities and fieldhouses and can be customized to be used in gyms, fitness centers and other types of athletic facilities. A totally seamless flooring solution, it’s highly durable and resistant to abrasion.
Rubber flooring is extremely versatile and often used in weight rooms, training facilities and fitness centers. It’s affordable and cost-effective, easy to maintain, shock-absorbent and resistant to water and stains. It is not seamless, but it does have a seamless appearance. Multi-layer rubber floors offer maximum comfort and shock absorbency and are slip-resistant as well as antimicrobial.
