Sanding and sealing your gymnasium floor as part of a full refurbish can make your gymnasium floor look as good as new but at a fraction of the cost, and with less waste of natural resources. In most cases there will be an excellent quality timber gymnasium floor which can be refurbished by sanding and sealing.

Many old wood gymnasium floors have not been sanded and sealed or refurbished for many years and have either a very worn seal (or no seal at all) resulting in the wood wearing and getting ingrained dirt and turning a dirty black colour. Or some gymnasium floors are sealed but not sanded so they have had several coats of oil based seal applied over the years which have "yellowed" with sunlight giving a dirty brown appearance. As more coats of seal are applied some areas can delaminate leaving sharp edges. The results are your gymnasium floor may be lacking in grip, beginning to splinter or suffering damage to the structure, and looking poor.

We sand and seal wood gymnasium floors to provide an excellent surface with good grip and an as new look (provided there are no deep indentations which cannot be sanded out). We sand all gymnasium floors with belt sanders (not drum sanders) to give a high quality smooth surface and finish with buffers. We have specialist extraction systems to leave minimal dust for a cleaner area and smoother end result and to eliminate time spent cleaning after. We seal gymnasium floors using seals that have been tested to exceed the requirements of BS7044 for providing a surface with the required grip.
