Dance Floor Isolation Pads


Installing a performance floor for either gymnasiums, dance studios or sports halls can be an issue on solid concrete or very stiff floors.

Solid concrete and stiff floors provide many technical issues when installing a recreational performance flooring.

In Birmingham UK, Armadillo NV were approached by the Royal Ballet to develop an isolation solution for their dance floor. Rebound, noise reduction, damping and shock absorbing were all evaluated and tested the the University of Loughborough. The conclusion was the product, Armadillo DFP15, was installed in a grid formation to support a lattice work of pine wood spas to which a plywood deck can be attached prior to the finished flooring surface. Even better the pads were manufactured by Armadillo NV incorporating self adhesive backing for speedy installation with the minimal disruption to the Royal Ballet.
