The natural winner

The natural winner

It is the composition of ingredients that makes Marmoleum Sport so unique. It meets all the requirements of an ecologically superior product construction and combines a wealth of positive performance characteristics, the end result of the material composition as such.

Linseed oil obtained from the seeds of the flax plant is the main component of Marmoleum Sport. Together with natural rosin, limestone and woodflour the linoleum substrate is created, which is coloured by adding natural or nature-based colour pigments.

This still flexible substrate is pressed onto a jute woven fabric and then, in large drying chambers, transforms into a tough, durable sports flooring. Using green energy, the production process of Marmoleum Sport is a very environmentally friendly process.

Applications and underlay

Marmoleum Sport can be used as floor covering for several types of sports flooring systems according to EN 14904. The 2 most commonly used are area elastic and point deformation.

Area elastic (type A) sports flooring system
Marmoleum Sport is perfect for use in area elastic (sprung) sports floor constructions. Area-elastic floors minimise the risk of injury by spreading the force of an impact over a larger area. The combination of a sprung system with a Marmoleum Sport floor covering provides increased force reduction and vertical deformation. This makes it suitable for more demanding sports. The construction of the sprung undercarriage determines the exact performance values.

Point elastic (type P) sports flooring system
Marmoleum Sport can also be used to create point elastic flooring systems. Marmoleum Sport Elastic is a combination of Marmoleum Sport and a high-tech rubber underlay to cushion shocks directly at the point of impact. This helps to reduce the risk of repetitive stress problems associated with hard surfaces. Nor does the weight of the user determine the effectiveness of the cushioning effect, as with area elastic systems. Point elastic systems are therefore ideal for children’s play areas and lower impact sports. Important to note is that point elastic sports floors are more vulnerable for indentation issues than area elastic floors, therefore too heavy point loads should be avoided in order to ensure the longest possible lifetime of the floor.

Marmoleum sport elastic
Marmoleum Sport + an advanced rubber underlay = Marmoleum Sport Elastic Marmoleum Sport Elastic is a point elastic (type P) floor covering that consists of two layers that work together to provide a perfect base for low-impact sports. The shock pad underfloor is made of recycled rubber and foam particles, bound with polyurethane. The top surface is Marmoleum Sport. The rubber underlay and Marmoleum Sport re-installed separately. The underlay can be affixed directly to the subfloor, which makes it a simple and cost effective sports floor system.
