Harlequin WoodSpring® is a permanently installed sprung floor system that is a modern update of the traditional ‘basket weave’ construction originated in the 19th Century. Harlequin’s modern interpretation blends a traditional construction approach with the technology of today’s materials. The “spring” in basket weave construction comes from the natural flexing and recovery of the triple layer of battens, which is enhanced by shock-absorbent elastomer pads.
Harlequin WoodSpring is comprised of a triple layer of wooden bearers laid at right angles to one another onto shock-absorbent elastomer pads attached to the underside of the bottom layer. The bearers are then covered with a dual layer of semi-flexible panels and covered with either a Harlequin vinyl performance surface or solid hardwood. The selection of lumber, batten and pad spacing, insulation and installation are proprietary to Harlequin Floors and critical to long-term performance.
Harlequin WoodSpring must be installed through Harlequin’s Contracts division.
