Plastic Flooring VS Solid Wood Flooring

Edit: Denny 2020-03-26

  Sports venues include basketball courts, badminton courts, volleyball courts, table tennis courts, gyms, etc., which basically refer to indoor sports courts. The floors paved in these sports venues are mainly wooden sports floors and PVC sports floors. In recent years, more and more sports venues have begun to choose PVC sports flooring, especially non-professional competition venues, sports stadiums, training venues, etc. are the first choice of PVC sports flooring.



  PVC sports flooring is the first choice for sports venues because it has advantages over solid wood sports flooring:

  Comparison of construction speed: general sports field construction. Take basketball courts as an example. Generally a standard basketball court solid wood floor construction takes 15-20 days, while PVC sports floor construction only takes 5-7 days to complete.

  Comparison of floor performance: solid wood floors are prone to cracking, deformation, moth-eaten, mildew, resonance, poor impact resistance, poor abrasion resistance, and a rebound rate of 90%; and PVC sports floors have good abrasion resistance, stain resistance, Antibacterial, easy to clean and maintain, no deformation, no crack, no arch, no moth, mildew, stable size, rebound rate up to 98%, safe and reliable, can effectively protect athletes from being injured.

  Color matching comparison: solid wood sports flooring has a single color, while PVC sports flooring has a variety of colors, suitable for different color needs, and easy to match, without being limited by the floor and the venue.

  Comparison of environmental protection performance: Due to the use of paint on solid wood sports flooring, the floor is not environmentally friendly and has formaldehyde release, while PVC sports flooring is 100% free of formaldehyde and harmful gas emissions, environmentally friendly and pollution-free.

  Advantages of PVC sports floor

  1. Comfort issues:

  The surface of professional plastic sports floor can be moderately deformed when impacted, like a sealed mattress with air inside. When you are wrestling or slipping, the cushioning effect provided by the closed foam backing technology can minimize the impact. Sports injuries.

  2. The problem of tremor:

  Tremor refers to the area where the floor is deformed by impact. The larger the tremor range, the more likely it is to cause a fracture. There are two types of tremor: point tremor and regional tremor.

  3. The problem of vibration absorption:

  The impulse formed by people during exercise will cause vibration on the surface of the plastic sports floor. The structure of the floor must have the function of shock absorption, which means that the floor should have the ability to absorb impact energy. The impact force is much smaller than on a hard ground, such as on a concrete ground. That is to say, when athletes jump and fall to the floor, at least 53% of the impact should be absorbed by the floor, so as to protect the athlete's ankle, meniscus, spinal cord and brain, so that people will not be affected during exercise. hurt. Its protective function also considers that a person cannot affect the adjacent people when they are moving on the plastic sports floor. This is the concept of vibration absorption, vibration deformation and extended deformation described in the German DIN standard.

  4, the problem of friction coefficient:

  Studies have shown that 12% of basketball players' injuries occur during a spin in place. The coefficient of friction of a sports floor indicates whether the floor has too much friction (which reduces the flexibility of rotation) or is too slippery (which increases the risk of slipping). Considering the athlete's mobility and safety, the friction coefficient should be the best value between 0.4-0.7. The coefficient of friction of plastic sports floor is generally maintained between this coefficient. The coefficient of friction of professional plastic sports floor is 0.57. It has sufficient and moderate friction to ensure the stability of the movement and maintain it in all directions of movement. Consistency and regularity of friction performance to ensure flexible movement and in-situ rotation without any obstruction.

  5. The problem of ball resilience:

  The ball resilience test is to drop the basketball from a height of 6.6 feet onto the sports floor to test the rebound height of the basketball. This data is expressed as a percentage, and the rebound height of the basketball on the concrete floor is used as a comparison standard to reflect the difference in rebound height. The rules for indoor ball games require that the ground be used for sports competitions or training, such as basketball and other ball sports, and the rebound of the ball. The ball's bounce comparison coefficient on the ground of the playing field should be greater than or equal to 90%. More professional plastic sports flooring has outstanding and stable ball resilience. There is no elastic dead point on the floor. Its rebound comparison coefficient can reach 98%.

  6, the issue of sports energy return:

  This refers to the sports energy returned by the plastic sports floor when athletes are exercising to improve exercise efficiency.

  7, the problem of rolling load:

  The load-bearing load and firmness of professional sports flooring must meet the requirements of competition and training. For example, when the movable basketball rack and related sports facilities are moved on the floor, the surface and structure of the floor must not be damaged. Described rolling load standards and concepts.
