Bio-Channel® Classic for Performing Arts

 

The Bio-Channel Classic Performing Arts Stage Design is the proven choice for theater and performing arts facilities. Facilities such as the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati, OH, Tempe Center for the Arts in Tempe, AZ, and The
Borland Center in Palm Beach, FL have relied on Robbins Bio-Channel Classic for years to provide a solid performing foundation for their dancers and performers.

Bio-Channel Classic for Performing Arts is a proven choice for theater stages when the floor must meet the performance demands of dancers, as well as withstand the impact from set design construction and equipment. Bio-Channel Classic combines the structural and dimensional stability of an anchored flooring system, with the safety and comfort of resilient flooring for dancer safety. A plywood sleeper floats on 7/16”(11mm) Green Bio-Pad within a steel channel that’s anchored to the concrete floor, creating a uniform surface with the right amount of vertical deformation and shock absorption. For the surface, Robbins MFMA maple is typically selected. However, other surfaces such as tempered hardboards or vinyl may be utilized. Please consult your Robbins  Regional Sales Manager for the correct system build up.

Danzaire

[rbaction]

DanzaireTM                  

 Robbins professional theatrical system, DanzAire is a “sprung” floor designed specifically for ballet performers with dancer input to create the world’s most comfortable and safe performance surface.  Robbins unique dance floor design clearly unites legendary performance with all the qualities necessary to withstand the rigors of even the most demanding venues, delivering long-lasting, superior performance characteristics that traditional sprung floors cannot. Outstanding uniformity, vibration control, impact force reduction, and deflection allow performers of all levels to concentrate on their art, not the fear of falling or injury.

System Feature Build up (From top to bottom):

  1. Finish – MFMA approved floor finish.
  2. Sealer – MFMA approved floor sealer.
  3. Flooring – Commodity 25/32″ Random Length (RL) Northern Hard Strip Maple or upgraded 1/2″(13mm) or 25/32″(20mm) Continuous Strip® XL Finger-Jointed(FJ) Northern Hard Strip Maple.
  4. Flooring Fastener – 1 3/4″ (44mm)staples or flooring cleats.
  5. Subfloor – 1 layer of nominal 3/8″ x 24″ x 96″(9mm x 60cm x 2438mm) Exposure 1,rated subfloor sheathing.  Subfloor will be glued and fastened together.
  6. Anchor- Anchor spike and retainer.
  7. Subfloor – Laminated Danzaire panel with built in resilient layer.
  8. Vapor Barrier – 6- MIL polyethylene.

System Benefits:

  • Significantly enhances “comfort’’
  • Provides unparalleled uniformity in feel and performance
  • Tightly controls magnitude and timing of deformation
  • Damps vibration, quickly limiting effect on neighboring performers
  • Minimizes floor system vibration in general and specifically in the natural frequency range of soft tissue packages, providing comfort and reducing fatigue
  • Separates the input vibration frequency (i.e., the skeletal deceleration (frequency) from the natural frequency of soft tissue packages 
  • Induces small Electromyography (EMG) muscle activity response
  • Limits the amount of flooring set into motion upon impact through excellent deformation control
  • Provides outstanding acoustics
  • Eliminates excessive rebound e.g., “trampoline effect” 
  • Prevents “hard & soft spots” through uniform suspension across the entire floor
  • Uniformity, vibration control, and force reduction dramatically reduces the potential for injury, while also enhancing performance 
  • Provides excellent stability under theatrical loading

System Height

  • 2 3/4″(70mm) with 1/2″(13mm) thick Flooring
  • 3″(76mm) with 25/32″(20mm) thick Flooring

Eclipse® SB (Anchored)  

If your facility may be subjected to heavy loads, the Eclipse SB system is for you! Eclipse SB takes the standard Eclipse system and adds a floor load handling feature to it.  The “SB” stands for “Self Blocking”.    This limits the overall deflection of the subfloor during heavy loads.  Essentially, the resilient subfloor is designed to “bottom out” on the concrete slab during excessive loading from bleachers, portable basketball goals, and heavy equipment.  However, the system performs like the standard Eclipse system during athletic play.

System Feature Buildup (top to bottom):

  1. Finish – MFMA approved Finish
  2. Gamelines – Compatible Gameline Paint
  3. Sealer – MFMA approved Sealer
  4. Flooring – 25/32″ Commodity Random Length(RL) or upgraded 25/32″ Continuous Strip® XL Finger-Jointed(FJ), MFMA Northern Hard Maple Strip Flooring
  5. Flooring Fastener – 2″(51mm) staples or flooring cleats.
  6. Subfloor – Assembled double layer Eclipse subfloor
  7. Anchor – Anchor spike and sleeve
  8. Resilient Pad – 7/16″(11mm) Resilient Pad.
  9. Vapor Retarder – 6-mil polyethylene film

System Benefits:

  • Handles heavy loads, the ‘SB’ feature allows system to bottom out during excessive loading.
  • Superior performance, meets all requirements of MFMA PUR, DIN, ASTM and EN standards.
  • Complete uniformity of game play performance.
  • Economical

System Height:

  • 2″ (51mm) with 25/32″(20mm) thick Flooring
  • 2 1/4″ (57mm) with 33/32″(26mm) thick Flooring

Sportwood® Ultra-Star    

You expect a lot from your athletic floor.  Durability.  Attractiveness.  Comfort and Safety.  And you know better than to think that, when it comes to floor coverings, “one size fits all.”  So does Robbins.  That’s why Sportwood Ultra Star is the perfect floor for you — no matter what you require.

Sportwood Ultra Star is solidly constructed of beautiful MFMA Parquet edge-grain northern hard maple and features an adaptable, “tunable” underlayment. 

Elastomeric urethane adhesive bonds the maple Sportwood to layers of stabilizing load-distribution subfloor, sitting atop a matrix of our EPDM rubber Bio-Pads or alternate resilient element .  These pads can be adjusted, or “tuned,” to your desired level of shock absorption — making Sportwood Ultra Star ideal for any number of activities.  Whether you need shock absorption security for aerobic, basketball or other sports, or simply want a comfortable multi-use surface for cafetoriums or other facilities, simply specify the amount of resiliency needed, and Robbins will take care of the rest.  The load- distibution subfloor, plus the resilient shock-pads, allows Sportwood Ultra-Star floors more “give” — meaning less chance of foot, leg or back injury.  In addition to this safety feature, Sportwood Ultra Star is the most dimensionally stable maple parquet product on the market, able to withstand even extreme moisture conditions.

  1. Finish – MFMA approved floor finish
  2. Gamelines – Gameline Paint
