Granwax products for Granwood Floors
We’ve all walked on a Granwood floor, probably without realising. If you’re in a school or college, leisure centre or community hall, it’s likely that there is one very close by. Around 70% of the UK’s indoor sport is played on a Granwood surface each week.
Who are they?
Granwood Flooring Limited is a 3rd generation family owned British company with over 100 years experience in manufacturing the unique Granwood Composition Wood Blocks in their North Derbyshire factory that is used to produce Traditional Granwood and Gransprung flooring systems.
What are they?
Granwood Blocks are environmentally sound, resistant to water, fire, wet and dry rot, extremes of temperature and humidity, termites, most chemicals and are guaranteed not to warp, twist, buckle or splinter.
Granwood Blocks are fixed directly to a concrete subfloor with either a sand and cement mortar bed or an adhesive.
Granwood Blocks are available in a range of 10 attractive colours so a little imagination can produce a very decorative and individual floor. Or a contrasting colour can be introduced into the floor at little or no cost to delineate a section of the floor without introducing the extra joints which are often a weak point with other types of floor. The colour in a Granwood Block is evenly distributed through the block and not just applied to the surface.
The Gransprung flooring systems were developed over 20 years ago and have received widespread approval since their launch. Combining the proven multi-sport, multipurpose Granwood Block surface with a fully sprung undercarriage has produced an all round sports floor that caters for the widest range of sporting and general activity.
The Gransprung flooring systems have undergone extensive testing and have successfully achieved full compliance the European wide CEN standard for multi-sport indoor sports floors, which was published in 2006 as British Standard BS EN 14904:2006, making them ideal for both recreational sport and sport played at the highest level as well as specialist activities such as gymnastics and aerobics.
Gransprung floors also have a ‘Reaction to Fire Classification’ of BFL-s1 when classified in accordance with EN 13501-1:2002.
The Gransprung flooring systems offer you all the advantages of a sprung timber floor without the usual disadvantages, high maintenance costs or fire risk. The Granwood Block’s ability to withstand water allows ‘wet’ cleaning methods to be utilised meaning that Gransprung floors are quick, easy and so economic to clean and degrease thus ensuring our floors should always maintain the tractional qualities so important for sporting use.
These ‘wet’ cleaning methods also allow our floors to be refinished at a fraction of the cost associated with other types of flooring which need machine sanding, grinding or completely resurfacing.
