Rod floors are a great training aid for gymnasts and cheerleaders. They are stiff enough for your bigger athletes, but soft enough to help younger/smaller athletes too. Coaches find that this floor increases the learning capabilities of their athletes which allows them to progress faster. They are common in Gymnastics, Cheer and Tumbling facilities across the US. The tubular fiberglass rods ensure a fantastic amount of spring with increased safety. They are sold in 4’ X 6’ sections and covered by two pieces foam (not included in rod floor cost). The rod floor units (without foam) are 8” tall when assembled.
These floors are also used in the sport of Power Tumbling, where tumbling is performed on these elevated spring runways that help tumblers propel themselves higher than a basketball goal as they demonstrate speed, strength and skill while executing a series of acrobatic maneuvers. Top-level contenders will perform explosive somersaults with multiple flips and twists. Coaches and gymnasts appreciate this rod floor because it offers a phenomenal amount of spring, it decreases injuries, virtually no maintenance is required, and it is very easy to set up.
A Competition Size Rod Floor is 84 feet (21 sections). Rods are covered by a layer of Carpet Bonded Foam (1 3/8") over a layer of 1.875" to 2" (50mm) polyethylene (aka Trocellen) foam with Scrim. The Scrim side is placed directly on the rods for these floors. The Scrim will prevent the rods from chewing up or tearing up the bottom of the foam. You can make yours a custom length if you like (divisable by 4').
We offer our customers the Ross Rod Floor. These Rod Floors do require simple assembly to be done once received. We would recommend that the legs be zip-tied to connect unit to unit if you select the Ross Floor, but this is optional. (Zip ties are not included.)
The Ross Rod Floor is the tumbling track floor recognized by the Federation of International Gymnastics.
See video of assembly process here.
The fiberglass rods are spaced evenly across the top. The rods will each withstand greater than 6,000 pounds per square inch of force. Once the foam layers are in place, you may also want to consider the option of a vinyl floor skirting for the perimeter.
