Sports flooring should be laid after keeping a lot of considerations in mind. Some of the parameters that are to be considered while laying sports flooring is the shock absorption, which is the quantum of impact that is absorbed by the floor, usually measured in percentage. Also, the vertical deformation needs to be considered that is the average distance the floor deforms under impact, measured in mm. Also, sports flooring should be able to withstand rolling load. In addition, other factors that need to be considered while opting for a suitable sports flooring is the ball rebound, measuring how much a ball bounces off the surface of the sports floor and the slip resistance which measures the level of grip the surface possesses. Earlier, the obvious choice for a sports floor was solid timber. However, with a lot of progress happening in technology and material science, the sports flooring is moving towards engineered timber and a variety of synthetic surfaces.
