Keep A Great New Floor Great
As a rink owner, you can count on refinishing your rink at least once a
year - and that's if you follow a good daily maintenance program! To keep
you floor looking great, plan on an annual "face-lift."
Just as it takes an expert to install a quality floor system, we
believe that same expert is your best guarantee in maintaining the quality
of your investment.
The Wall family has been the undisputed leader in construction of maple
floors for over 30 years. With a history of quality craftsmanship, we are
your best choice for maintenance and refinishing. Our annual service
contracts guarantee that the "new" stays in your floor investment, which
means no more guessing when or what kind of maintenance is required to
permanently keep your floor in its best condition. Tradition and
smoothness stay consistent from day one - the most important factors in
A sound maintenance program and annual service assure a quality
skateable surface. Properly scheduled maintenance is absolutely essential
in prolonging the life of the floor, and also means protection of your
rink floor investment for years to come.
Floor Systems, Inc. in conjunction with the manufacturers of products
used for your floor, guarantee the material and workmanship for a one (1)
year period from the date of installation. Any defect arising from
workmanship or materials will be corrected free of charge subject to the
condition described as follows: Floor is to be used for its intended
purpose. Floor must be maintained according to industry standards and as
described in MFMA Care Card. Warranty does not cover abuse, faulty
construction of building, separation of slab, or failure of other
contractors to meet specifications, normal wear and tear, fire, water or
chemical reactions, improper ventilation, excessive moisture or dryness.
Sub Floor - The General Contractor or the Owner shall furnish the concrete or
asphalt sub floor, troweled smooth and level with the maximum variance not
to be more than 1/8" in any twenty (20) foot diameter. The complete area
under the entire designated rink floor space shall be damp proof. Taking
into consideration the terrain, soil texture and elevation of the rink
floor above the surrounding area. It is desirable that the area
surrounding the building slope away or that adequate drainage be provided
at the entire building perimeter.
Working Conditions -
The Owner shall turn over sub floor; fully cured (45 days minimum for
concrete) broom clean and with all general lighting ceilings, and painting
work completed so as floor can be installed without interrupting building
temperature of 65 degrees and relative humidity of less than 50%. This
should be maintained one week prior to installation and from then on.
Installation - The Free Floating Floor System can be specifically designed for
your needs and budget. However the basics of what makes this system
unequaled by any others are incorporated in every installation. Each floor
begins by scaling the sub base slab with a layer of Cold Floor Asphalt to
protect the floor from moisture. Then for additional moisture protection
and sound proofing, a 1/2" layer of Styrene covers the entire floor area.
Next a double layer of Plywood (Waferwood and Hemlock can be used) is
installed to provide a solid nailing base. Finally the Maple Hardwood is
laid and nailed individually in the patter (Log Cabin, Fan Shape, or
Rotunda) selected. When flooring is completely installed, the entire
surface is finely sanded several times, and specified floor coatings are
applied. Then floor is ready for use in 2 to 3 days.
