Important part of any type of dance floor is the respite system. It can make you be resilient, can get energy in return and the absorption from this kind of floor. It should be done properly where the blocks can be of foam which create even point compression over the ballet floor entirely, exercise or tap floor while landing. Blocks of foam may be mostly liked to the cushion into the running shoes.
You can follow these four different respite methods given below:
- Closed cell and foam blocks agglutinate to the lower part of the subfloor:
- With this closed cell and foam blocks can provide you the best elasticity.
- This can be held functionally for amply over nearly 20 years.
- By this option application the height of floor can be increased by nearly 1.5” to 1.75” over all.
- These foam blocks with closed cell are the product of choice while thinking to build a modern improved sprung floor.
- Fully rolled padding below the sub floor:
- This fully rolled padding can provide thrust absorption but will not give much resilience or not return energy.
- In this padding, if it will be made of foams it can be last for long years, but just because of not having any unpadded free space, dancers sometimes have to face a tough time feeling resilience of the fully rolled padding floor.
- In this floor, height of the floor can be varied from 1.5” to 2.5”, which depends on thickness of foam.
- Strips of rubber below the subfloor:
- This rubber stripped floor is a least desirable floor, but still it can provide some resilience.
- Pleated basket under the floor:
- This pleated basket method can be considered as the best method for constructing. These floors are using in theatres and in dance halls for long years, but this floor does not used much anywhere.
- By this pleated basket styled floor, some spots lightly can be developed where there has no any structure with wooden support.
- Height of pleated basket floors can be varied from 3” to 4”.
Sprung wooden floors:
Wooden sprung floors have a identically profiled performance related hardwood surface which is recoat able and also refinish able. The custom design is increased by flexibility and by resilience for safety of dancers.
From portable floors of dance to theatres, studios of dance for more than nearly 100 years strung floor is getting more manufactured for high performance flooring systems.
Sprung dance floor is sometime referred as floating floor. That term is not so used to a floor that can raise floor with computer facility. In sprung floor the top layer is the surface of performance and this can either a material as natural solid wood or engineered wood or it may be a surface such as synthetic, vinyl or polyurethane. Sprung floor can exclude the surface which may be referred to the subfloor. Most of sprung floors can be require the level sub floor which is to be installed.
