“The heart and soul of a dance studio is the floor”
Concrete floors and other solid surfaces are the mortal enemies of the dancer and dance teacher. They have no resilience or shock absorption; they are an invitation to ankle, knee and hip injury and can permanently damage growing bodies. Correct shock absorption reduces fatigue and significantly reduces the potential for shin splints and other common injuries. It reduces the strain that comes with turning and pivoting movements, and, with the correct top layer, increases foot stability & reduces rolling.
STM Studio Supplies has been developing, testing and gathering feedback from all sources to be able to present the most cost effective sprung flooring in Australia.
We have devised a system that reduces your financial outlay whilst still providing your dancers and teachers an appropriate and safe dance surface.
This product was developed to stop rugs moving on carpets, and works equally well for securing vinyl dance floor to carpet. Rug-Lock is washable, and foil backed for easy installation.
Simply lay on the carpet, peel off the backing, and carefully roll the vinyl out onto it.
Removes just as easily by reversing the process.
We recommend taping of joins on the vinyl, preferably undertaping.
Free of plasticizer, it is non-ageing and non-rotting.
Recommended for heated floors also.
Use your remnants to hang posters on the walls!
