A sprung floor is a floor that is built with material designed to absorb shock, which suspends the finished surface above an existing hard surface such as concrete, hardwood or tile glued to concrete.
Any person who is standing in one place all day, dancing, jumping, or engaging in intense physical activity needs a sprung floor. Concrete floors and other unyielding surfaces can create physical problems, as they do not “give”. A good sprung floor absorbs energy and returns a small portion back to the user. It provides an even and consistent resiliency.
O’Mara Sprung Floors can be placed on top of tight weave carpet.
