What is a Sprung Floor ?

A sprung floor is a performance floor designed to absorb and diffuse impact energy imparted to it by dancers or performers.  It returns or reflects a sufficient portion of that energy to make the floor feel lively, providing a small amount of lift.  The returned energy should not be so large as to adversely affect a dancers body. This balance helps to protect dancers from both fatigue and injury.

Do Sprung Floor Solutions sprung floors need to be attached to the existing floor ?

No. Sprung Floor Solutions floors are fully floating sprung floors. No part of the floor requires attachment to the substrate is rests upon and therefore no damage is done to the existing floor.

What floor sizes are available from Sprung Floor Solutions ?

Sprung Floor Solutions can configure floors of virtually any size.

Can a floor be configured differently than the original installation ?

Yes. Because our floor system is modular, its’ components can be arranged to different dimensions and shapes  .  If a larger floor dimension is required, additional floor panels, perimeter and foam can be used to create the larger array and if smaller dimensions are required, floor panels, perimeter and foam can be removed and stored until needed. Other sized floor panels, perimeter sections and tensioning cables or cable extensions sections may be needed to accommodate the new design layout.

Does Sprung Floor Solutions install the floors they Sell and Rent ?

Yes we do.  Sprung Floor Solutions offers installation services for all our sprung floor Sales and Rentals.

What surfaces can a Sprung Floor Solutions sprung floor be installed upon ?

Sprung Floor Solutions sprung floors can be installed upon virtually any level, solid surface including : concrete slab, existing flooring, risers, stages and ground.

What benefits does a Sprung Floor Solutions sprung floor provide ?

Safety for a dancers body with the stability and responsiveness of the performance surface are the necessities we incorporate into each of our sprung dance floors. While learning, rehearsing or performing, impact forces imparted to the floor by dancers from their jumps, leaps, stomps and general repetitive contact are very large. The floor must have the ability to absorb a portion of these forces, without making it feel too soft or unstable causing dancers to overwork themselves. If the floor does not absorb these forces sufficiently the excess energies are largely returned to dancers bodies through their feet, legs, joints, tendon, etc., with the potential of causing discomfort or even great harm. This can lead to a range of dance injuries that spans dancing “hurt”, to those that can end a career. Guided by the importance we place on “Safety in Performance” for dancers of all genres, performers and fitness enthusiasts, each Sprung Floor Solutions dance floor is designed to prevent injuries and counter fatigue, enabling more energetic training and performances.
