Over 1750m2 our professional sports flooring was specified by architects Reaich & Hall. The building, which features a striking roof the shape of a long-range free kick by Brazilian footballer Roberto Carlos, is located within the campus of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.

The new state of the art building provides Scotland’s top athletes with world-class facilities for training and competing and offers extensive access to the local community. The 32x45m main sports hall features Junckers’ SylvaSport Premium fitted over UnoBat 45 undercarriage system, providing a high performing, high quality and safe flooring surface suitable for a multitude of different sports. All Junckers’ sports floors are area elastic and conform to the European standard EN 14904.  The flooring contractor was Courtcraft.

Solid Wood Floors for Schools – An Affordable Choice, says Richard Aylen, Junckers’ Technical Services Manager

Junckers’ sports floors are made in solid hardwood, one of the most durable surfaces available and virtually unbeatable in terms of lifecycle costs. All our sports floors comply with Sports England and Sport Scotland’s guidance for Affordable Sports Floors and are the ideal choice for schools, colleges and universities.

Performance

Junckers sports floor systems comply with EN 14904. Within the Affordable Sports Floor price range we can offer both Category A3 and A4 systems, exceeding Sport England’s minimum performance requirement.

Maintenance and Life Span

Every floor finish, including synthetics, will become damaged over time. The difference with a Junckers solid hardwood sports floor is that it can be sanded and re-finished eight to ten times during its life. With 12-year intervals between sandings, a typical lifespan of 60 years will comfortably be exceeded. Compared with a typical 15 year life of a synthetic or “engineered” floor there really is no comparison in terms of life cycle cost.

Contractors in our Approved Contractors network scheme can offer an inspection service including periodic inspections of the floor and advise on care and cleaning. Junckers offer a comprehensive range of high quality, professional maintenance and finishing products to keep the floor in optimum condition throughout its lifespan.

Capital Cost

The installed cost of our floors falls comfortably within the range for Sport England’s Affordable Sports Floors.

Environmental Considerations

A hardwood floor is one of the most environmentally friendly sports floor finishes you could hope to find. All Junckers’ timber is from properly managed forests with FSC and PEFC chain of custody certification. Timber is harvested from old, established forest areas which are constantly replanted. Our floors are BREEAM A+ rated in the BRE Green Guide and we have EMAS 111 and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification. In addition, our products have low (E1) formaldehyde emissions under EN 14342. Out timber floors are carbon neutral and at the end of their lives they are very easy to recycle, in contrast to materials made from fossil fuels.

Retractable Seating Systems

Junckers’ flooring systems are perfectly suited for use with retractable seating, hundreds of examples in the UK alone are testament to this fact. Our floors may be strengthened in a simple way to cope perfectly with load bearing, which leaves the sprung quality of the floor unaffected. A solid hardwood floor will not be marked or damaged by wheels, and surface tracking, rucking or scuffing is non-existent with a Junckers floor.

A safe, high performing sports floor with the right environmental accreditations and unbeatable lifecycle costs which falls within the guidelines for Affordable Sports Floors set by Sport England – a Junckers sports floor is hard to beat.
