Synthetics are generally quite adaptable to specific needs and desires relating to athletic performance…
For years, multi-purpose areas and gymnasium floors have had two choices: Wood or VCT.
I understand the use of wood flooring for some gymnasium spaces but, many times the choice is VCT. Typically, the reason to behind selecting VCT is because of the price point. VCT, or as I like to refer to it “another layer of concrete,” is the worst possible choice for these rooms.
Safety and performance are the two most important considerations when selecting a gymnasium/multi-purpose floor and VCT meets neither one of these considerations. Advancements in synthetic floors now offer increased performance and improved safety with a nominal increase in price. Children and Athletes will benefit greatly because of these improvements.
