Our Technicians Can Install Specialized Dance Floors
At Pacific Floor Covering LLC located in Honolulu, we understand the intricacies involved with installing a ballroom dance floor. Hardwood flooring is used for ballroom flooring, but the materials require a specialized design and expert installation. Sprung floors are made to absorb shock as a couple dances on the floor, helping to prevent injuries to their feet, ankles and legs. Our technicians will install the wood floor planks using rubber feet or matting that helps the flooring to absorb the hard steps of ballroom dancers.
Special Requirements for Ballroom Floors in Hawaii
In addition to absorbing pressure from dancing, our hardwood flooring installation team can plan to build a surface that makes less noise. Here are a few requirements for creating quality ballroom flooring:
- Easy to clean
- Slip proof when damp
- Helps to reduce noise
- The correct color of flooring in combination with the room’s lighting
- The tiles only depress slightly
- No sideway movement of the tiles or planks
- Made with the correct traction for dancing
- Helps to protect dancers from injuries during falls
- Returns energy to the feet while dancing
- A beautiful surface that is flat and even
Factors That We Consider When We Install a Ballroom Dance Floor
Our Pacific Floor Covering floor installers must also consider other factors when designing a ballroom floor because it might have heavy objects such as musical instruments, tables or chairs sitting on its surface. A ballroom floor requires a durable surface to protect it from the damages caused by high-heeled shoes. When measuring the surface for a ballroom floor, technicians must consider how the materials can expand against the walls or baseboards, making sure to leave a small gap for air circulation. Additional considerations are planning for doorways that may need wheelchair ramps or that have stairsteps.
Types of Wood Used for Ballroom Dance Floors
Only durable hardwood flooring is used for ballrooms because repetitive dancing can destroy the surface of flimsy tiles or cheap wood. Some of the wood varieties selected include:
