Air-Channel® Star with Subfloor    

Robbins Air-Channel Star system combines anchored laminated sleepers to provide a system with dimensional stability and superior performance.  The Air-Channel Star sleepers are laminated and engineered to be less susceptible to physical changes due to moisture compared to solid softwood sleepers.  Air-Channel Star is a proven performer and an excellent choice for your gymnasium project.
