Junckers manufactures high-quality solid wood flooring for all types of sports courts and gyms, including basketball courts, dance floors, volleyball courtsfloors for fitness, futsal pitches, racquet courts, squash courts and multipurpose arenas.

With experience gained from manufacturing solid hardwood floors since the 1930s, Junckers has the technical expertise to design and supply the optimal performing high-quality solid sports flooring.

Our sports flooring solutions suit all indoor sport and activity areas, including, gym flooring, fitness flooring, athletic facilities, and multipurpose arenas. We have manufactured basketball floors and dance floors for many satisfied customers, and are a substantial supplier of sports floor systems all over the world.

Junckers sports floors perform with unique area-elastic characteristics and this gives athletes the ultimate freedom of movement, protects against injury and ensures that they can achieve their best. The hardwood floors are created for generations of use and it is not unusual to see Junckers timber sports floors in sport halls that are 50-60 years old.

Junckers wooden floors are made of 100% solid hardwood. There are no intermediate layers of alternative materials in the floorboards that can come apart. The floors have a full 7/8" (22mm) thickness of hardwood, and this makes them very strong and stable. The floorboards are made from two rows of staves assembled by means of a carefully machined double dovetail joint. A solution which uses the timber efficiently without compromising the quality.


To make it easy and fast to install the floor, Junckers sports floor boards have uniform lengths of 12' (3700mm) and cover approx. 5 square feet (0.5 m²). All floor boards are tongue and groove jointed all round.


Junckers sports floors are always supplied prefinished with urethane from the factory. This makes this hardwood floor ready to use right after installation. 
A prefinished sports floor eliminates the risk of human error when sanding and using urethane on site and avoids using urethanes of unknown quality. Sports floors sealed with urethane from the factory ensure high quality and save on site labour costs.


We take far longer than normal over the drying process to ensure that the movements occurring naturally in wood are fully controlled and kept to a minimum.

Our Beech and Maple sports floors are dried using Junckers unique press drying method. This process creates high strength and an indentation resistance of the floor board that will usually exceed that of similar boards dried using normal methods.


The urethane used for our floors is an extremely hard-wearing polyurethane, which is applied in several coats.
Junckers own product development team has developed this urethane and it is produced in our own manufacturing facilities in Denmark.


Our floors are easy to clean, maintain and are fully repairable.
On a daily basis, the floor only requires sweeping or a machine cleaning using as little water as possible.
To protect and ensure the long life of the floor we recommend occasionally a light sanding and re-sealing.

Hardwood sports floors: Unmatched durability with a natural touch

Hardwood sports floors are unmatched in terms of durability. Renowned for its toughness and resistance to damage makes hardwood the ideal choice for high-impact sports and frequent use. It has a natural touch that provides a natural feel underfoot which is why hardwood is commonly used in basketball courts, dance studios, gyms, and exercise floors in hotels and apartment buildings.
Versatile design

Versatile design and aesthetic appeal

With the ability to be finished in a variety of ways, hardwood flooring can accommodate the needs of any sport or fitness activity. The wood adds a natural and attractive look to the sports facility, making it more inviting and appealing to athletes, fans, and guests

The standard relates to both safety and sports technical properties and the most important key factors are described below.



Correct friction is important when ball players move rapidly on the floor, and the ideal friction rating is between 80 and 110. A friction value less than 80 makes the floor too smooth, and above 110 makes the floor too rough.

Friction for ball players demonstrated

Rolling load

The floor’s ability to withstand rolling loads is important for example where trolleys and retractable seating are used. Test results display whether the floor can withstand a rolling load of 1,500 N (approx. 150 kgs).

Vertical deformation

The floor’s ability to absorb shock depends on its ability to flex when exposed to a dynamic load. Test results display the floor’s vertical deformation in mm when exposed to a dynamic impact equivalent to that of light jogging.

Shock absorption

A shock absorbing floor minimises the risk of injuries. Testing measures the percentage of impact energy absorbed by the floor when landing a jump.

Ball bounce

A good ball bounce increases the ball control and the speed of the game. Test results display the rebound achieved by the floor as a percentage of the rebound measured on a concrete floor.

In spite of the good intentions of the European standard, there are no demands concerning strength and durability of a sports floor. Therefore Junckers has chosen to integrate two additional internal tests for evidence of these properties.

Fatigue test

This test is conducted on all Junckers class A4 floors. The floor is exposed to a series of controlled, dynamic point impacts of 3 kN (approx. 300 kgs) no less than 100,000 times, which efficiently simulates the equivalent of 25 years of normal use.

Point load testing

The demands on the floor’s ability to withstand point loads may be increased significantly when the sports floor is used for exhibitions, concerts and major sports events and where retractable seating is moved across the floor. These demands are simply not considered by the EN Standard. Therefore, Junckers sports floors undergo rigorous tests in order to ensure durable and versatile floors.
