Still performing as well as the day it was installed in 2009.

A recent visit to the Oxford University sports hall revealed the 700m2 Maple Boflex Stadium Sports Floor, installed in 2009 are still performing as well as the day the floor was installed.

Facilities Manager Shaun Fleming commented that “the floor performs day after day”. The floor is maintained by resealing every eighteen months.

Boflex Stadium, which conforms to the highest European standard (EN14904), has a low floor height of just 28mm and comes with built-in shock absorption which is equally suitable for children’s games and activities as it is for tackling the weight of heavy bleacher seating.

Key benefits

  • Progressive shock absorption
  • Almost impossible to overload
  • High-level performance
  • Finished floor height 28mm

Boflex carries the unique combination of a built-in shock absorption material and a stable construction that can withstand almost unlimited loads. This makes the floor system ideal for venues with multi-purpose usage (schools for examples) and large arenas. The uniform performance suits children as well as adults, with good bounce and friction. Even after twenty years, Boflex performs as day one.

Tests conducted by SINTEF (formerly The Norwegian Building Research Institute) shows that Boflex surpasses all its rivals and performs exceptionally well when being used by children and adults protecting body joints from shocks.

Boflex offers flexibility to accommodate your needs. Due to its extremely low building height, it is well suited for renovation purposes. The floor system is suitable with underfloor heating, for rolling loads and allows both hardwood and elastic surfaces (Boflex Champion).

Tests show that the system can withstand an almost unlimited load, due to the special built-in foam under-structure that can never be compresses more than 50% making the system suitable for tackling the heavy weight grandstands.

Boflex must be installed on an even and selfsupporting sub-floor, or on top of an existing floor.
