Kahrs Activity floor: a floor that is a real dream!

"An ideal surface that has everything a good floor needs for competition and training."

Helena Nahafahik-Cardoso, triple World champion in Aerobics

What is like?

When we go in for sports, we stay alone, though there are many people around. We want to be free, on the move, and live a full life. Everything that surrounds us is to help us and not to put obstacles in our way. This concerns the floor under our feet as well.

What should the floor in a gym be like? Or in a showroom? Or the floor in a public place exposed to heavy traffic?

The answer is simple: it should be a real sports floor.

This is a floor which answered the highest demands on resilience and shock absorbency, yielding and resisting when it should. Kahrs offers the collection of sports floors – Activity Floor – that create an optimal surface for all types of sports and are available in Oak, Beech and Maple.

Kahrs Activity Floor combines excellent energy-absorbing qualities with durability and good looks. This floor is able to withstand a load of scores of people running, bouncing, spinning, twisting and turning at the same time.

Tests carried out by the Norwegian Building Research Institute, show that Kahrs Activity Floor excels in all categories, such as energy absorption, deformation, ball bounce, rolling load, friction, etc.

Kahrs Activity Floor has a lot of technological benefits:

  • total thickness 30 mm, giving very low construction height;
  • wear layer 3.6 mm, can be sanded several times;
  • overlapping pressure distribution with HDF board across joints on long sides and short ends;
  • resilient expanded foam for energy absorption and springing;
  • unique Woodloc® joint locks the boards together without glue;
  • high-quality UV-cured polyurethane-acrylic lacquer to withstand wear and tear;
  • an interlocked board construction designed to minimize the wood's natural movement;
  • several layers of polyether with progressive hardness (for correct energy absorption relative to loading).

What is Woodloc?

Woodloc is an ultra-strong joint of floorboards, which makes the floor installation fast and simple. The tensile strength of this joint is more than 10 kN/m. The patented Woodloc® system provides perfect joints between the boards. This eliminates the need for additional floor battens or special fittings.

Thanks to the Woodloc® joint, the floor can be laid directly on the subfloor

The full installation of Kahrs Activity Floor takes several hours. Kahrs Activity Floor features a unique "all-in-one" construction, so the floor is ready for laying.

Oak, or Quercus, is a genus of deciduous trees, of which about 600 species exist on earth. The fruit of the oaks is a nut called an acorn, or oak nut.
You are owner of a gym or training center. Or you have a room at home where you exercise. Would you like the floor under your feet to be the best in every respect? Let’s examine the question.
