  • The expert advice I received from Harlequin’s flooring specialists helped us select the ideal floor for our new space, a Harlequin Liberty™ Sprung Floor with a Harlequin Reversible™ vinyl surface. We miss our old space, but Harlequin Floors helped us to look forward to our new location. Thank you to everyone at Harlequin from the bottom of our hearts!”

    Harlequin Floors are comfortable as soon as you stand on them. You can work for longer on them too. If you get tired after an hour on a different floor, you can work for two, three or four hours on a Harlequin floor.”

    "The great thing about Harlequin Hi-Shine is how resistant it is. It withstands a lot of punishment but remains looking good. We’ve been using Harlequin flooring since 1997 and the reason we come back time and time again is because we know the products and the customer service is excellent."

  • “Having taken class, rehearsed and performed on Harlequin Floors during the course of my professional career, there was no question as to which flooring system we would install to replace our studio floors in both our academy and high school programs. It had to be Harlequin! Harlequin’s state-of-the-art flooring keeps my students in tip-top shape and ready to take the stage.”

    “To ensure our diverse, musically oriented community of aspiring dancers had flooring that fully supported not only their dreams but also their feet, we selected Harlequin’s Cascade and Standfast, accompanied by its Activity and WoodSpring sub-floors, for our seven studios and 300-seat Studio Theater. We could not have been more confident in our choice as Harlequin Floors has more than met our flooring needs.”

  • “If there is an event where people will be performing there is a good chance they’ll be using Harlequin Floors. Many designers will either opt for, or even request that Harlequin be used because the company maintains its solid reputation for producing high quality performance flooring. This fine quality prompted us to purchase Harlequin Standfast heavy-duty floors for a recent multi-venue stage event.”

    “My new studio space had limited ceiling height, but I wanted to be sure my floors were resilient enough for everything from pre-ballet to pre-professional. Harlequin’s Allegro dance flooring was the answer to my dreams. It cushions the falls of the little ones, and gives plenty of spring for the advanced dancers without raising the floor height!”

  • "We chose Harlequin’s Liberty™ panels with Harlequin’s Cascade™ surface - to provide a firm structural and flooring foundation which is equally as important as a strong technical foundation."
