Gym floor covers are extremely important to protect the participants in several different situations. These floor covers are designed to cover either the entire floor of a gymnasium or only part of it, depending upon the situation. If there is an activity going on in the gymnasium, and it is raining outside, the rain being tracked in can make the floor slick. This can create a slip hazard for everyone that is walking on the floor. A gym floor is normally covered with many layers of wax, and when water gets on the surface, it becomes slick. This could cause some serious injuries for someone who could slip and fall, especially the elderly.
Quality gym floor covers are made from materials and craftsmanship that is designed to last a long time. It is a very good investment for gymnasium owners. It also protects the gymnasium floor. When water is being tracked in on the floor, it can damage the floor. When people are walking on the gymnasium floor, someone may have a rock stuck in the bottom of their shoe. The rock could cause a deep scratch. This deep scratch can cause some major damage to the floor, costing the owner money for the repairs.
When a gym floor has to be repaired, it takes many man hours to do the job. The simplest repair, removing the old wax coating, with the hopes there is no damage to the floor underneath, is the least amount of work and expense the owner can do. If there is damage to the floor underneath the layers of wax, then the floor has to be replaced or repaired. After the repair is done, the floor must be very smooth and even. Then it is time to apply a seal type coating. Then there will need to be layers of wax coatings applied. The first coat will need to be applied and will need time to dry. A second coat will need to follow once the first coat is dry. This is a lengthy process causing the gym to be closed while this process is being completed. This will cost the owners of a gymnasium a large amount of money to repair.
