Athletic Floors by Academic Specialties
Did you know there is a complex science of safety and performance going on inside the athletic flooring in your gymnasium or rec center?
It may just look like a beautiful wood floor that oohs and ahhhs students, players and patrons. But underneath the floor is years of engineering, testing and innovation to provide the highest level of performance and safety for athletes.
Did you know that safety and performance are not easy goals to accomplish simultaneously in a gym floor?
A concrete floor is hard and fast which athletes like for speed and ball bounce. Unfortunately, concrete is hard on joints and muscles. A trampoline is soft and forgiving to cushion a fall and reduce injuries. But have you ever tried to bounce a ball or run on a trampoline?
Academic Specialties is an athletic flooring specialist for all types of indoor and outdoor athletic floors. We design floors that maximize speed and desirable ball bounce characteristics in a floor that is resilient to reduce muscle fatigue and injury. Athletes perform best on game day on a fast gym floor. They practice best and longer when they play on a resilient gym floor that absorbs body weight better, reduces muscle fatigue and reduces injuries. Over the years, we have received compliments from many professional basketball players on our gymnasium floors for the high performance and reduced muscle fatigue they experience.
Performance, safety, aesthetics and budget are important criteria to consider for any athletic floor – indoor or outdoor, wood, synthetic or rubber. We help our clients design facilities for basketball, volleyball, wrestling, dance, yoga, weight rooms, running tracks and all track and field events.
