Tarkett Sports installed a 7,319 sq. ft. wooden sports flooring solution in the fitness club of the Crowne Plaza hotel in Istanbul, a new prestigious 5-star-hotel.
This sports surface offers several a particularly strong sound insulation. The wooden sub-system of Multiflex M incorporates continuous highly cellularised PU (Polyurethane) foam backing that absorbs sound, especially in noisy, group classes. It provides great acoustic insulation and up to 20dB sound insulation. The floor also provides reduced sound transmission. Multiflex M offers improved acoustic comfort for foot impact movements, which tend to be louder when heavier athletes jump. By eliminating air gaps in the underlayer, Multiflex M reduces the potential “sound box” effect by preventing noise transmission to nearby rooms.
Multiflex M is further constructed with a highly dynamic foam-backed wooden sub-system topped by a reactive 14mm wood surface that combine to give 52% shock absorption in intense actions such as jumping.
Designed in a range of wood species that are suited to a variety of physical activities and help create different internal dynamics – from mellow mood to modern and elegant interiors. Each wood is unique in grain and pattern and offers a timeless range of shades, colors and emotions.
