About Sports Floor Sanding

Sports Hall sanding and refurbishment is one of our specialties at RH Wood Floors A sports floor is completely different to the floor in your home.  The majority of older Sports Floors are 2 ¼” solid Maple wood floors and can look fantastic when refinished. The wood may be the same as the wood laid in your home but there is a world of technology that goes into a sports floor. 

Sub Floor

There is an element of “give” to protect players back, knees and ankles. While you may not realize it, every time your foot hits the floor of a basketball court / gym floor / sports hall, etc. it sinks slightly and springs back. Of course you don’t notice this but it is hugely important for your bones and joints. Modern floors generally achieve a European DIN rating for slip resistance and vertical deformation.


It is so important to select the correct sports floor varnish when you are finishing the refurbishment of your school gym or sports hall. There is a legal requirement to ensure that the floor has a proper slip rating, this will help negate the liability of slips and falls.

Line Marking

We will also complete whatever line marking you require, whether it is a DOE standard 9 court layout covering Badminton, Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball or whatever you need completed to an international standard. We will always advise the best options available to you and give you examples.

We finish all our sports floors with an EU rated anti slip varnish with international line marking as standard

What Our Clients Say About Us

"Have used RH Floors on two separate occasions. The first time to restore some old parque floors and the second time to recondition some newer oak floors. I was very pleased with both jobs. What impressed me most was Russell and his team’s professionalism. They turn up on time, were polite and efficient and cleaned up after themselves, having completed a high standard of work . Any queries or questions were dealt with immediately. I have no hesitation in recommending RH floors and I will be using them again in the future." Mike A
