Omnisports Vinyl Sports Flooring
Omnisports vinyl flooring is quickly becoming one of the most popular gym floors in North America. Its performance characteristics make it ideally suited as basketball flooring, volleyball flooring, martial arts flooring, yoga flooring, and many other applications. The versatility of Omnisports even extends beyond sport activities; it can easily accommodate tables, chairs, or desks for conferences and assemblies. This makes Omnisports the perfect gym floor for K-12 schools, colleges, universities, and community centers, where any of these sports or events might occur on any given day. Omnisports 6.5mm and 8.3mm can now be installed utilizing our 98% adhesive free GreenLay™ system. This installation method increases moisture tolerance, reduces the cost associated with moisture barriers, and ultimately reduces installation time.
Omnisports is a heterogeneous vinyl sports floor, meaning that it consists of multiple layers. In the case of Omnisports, each layer or coating has unique function. When these layers are combined using the virtually tension free Tarkett vinyl manufacturing process, the result is the ideal multi-use sports floor.
