Application

Harlequin Activity permanent sprung floors are fitted by Harlequin's own Contracts Division as part of a total package to ensure the floor is correctly installed and is fully compliant with current regulations and standards.


  • A polymer damp-proof membrane is laid across the subfloor onto which is placed a layer of cellular polyurethane of proprietary density. Two layers of moisture-resistant semi-flexible panels are then installed and staggered, so that the joins do not coincide.
  • The top layer of panels is bonded to the one below with a non-setting adhesive and fastened mechanically.
  • The damp-proof membrane is folded onto the surface and secured to form a damp-proof seal.
  • Then the selected Harlequin vinyl performance surface is installed and adhered. The seams are welded to form an unbroken surface and, finally, the gap between the flooring and the wall is filled with a composite skirting profile, screwed to the edge of the floor structure to form a flexible seal to the wall.


Description

Harlequin Activity is a fully floating sprung floor system using Harlequin’s proprietary ‘triple sandwich’ construction method. The layers provide consistent shock dampening across the floor and offer the same feel and energy return

to one or several dancers. There are no fixings to the walls or subfloor and it is suitable for all genres of dance.


The system can be adapted to withstand heavy loading including retractable seating. Harlequin Activity has been tested for impact sound reduction with a variety of different Harlequin surfaces, according to BS EN ISO 140-8. Results ranged from 22–24 dB.

Harlequin Activity can be installed with a choice of vinyl surfaces:


Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for ballet, contemporary, modern and theatrical use, aerobics, zumba, hip-hop, jazz, street, salsa, percussive including flamenco, Irish and tap, multi-purpose use, concerts and for operatic performances.
  • Harlequin vinyl surface - for all types of performance, but particularly dance.
  • Warranty for reasonable wear and tear covers 10 years.
  • Area elasticity providing 'give' or flexion over the section where a performer lands.
  • Point elasticity offering compression at the point of contact.
  • Not suitable with underfloor heating.


Tested in accordance with EN 14904-2006:

  • Shock absorption: 64%.
  • Vertical deformation: 3.8 mm.
  • Area deflection: 7.2%.
  • Rolling load: >1500 N.


Maximum distributed load:

750 kg/m².


Maximum dynamic load:

350 kg/m².


Components:

  • Top surface: Chosen vinyl performance surface, e.g. Harlequin Cascade.
  • Top panel: moisture resistant semi flexible board.
  • Lower panel: moisture resistant semi flexible board.
  • Cellular layer: cellular polyurethane.
  • Damp proof membrane: PE membrane.
