REGUPOL sets the benchmark in sports floor construction - New installation technology offers advantages in the construction of running tracks
The sports floor manufacturer REGUPOL presents a completely new and innovative laying technology for running tracks. By eliminating an entire work step, the customer saves installation time and material. REGUPOL calls this innovation “4.0 technology”.
With the application of this new 4.0 technology, REGUPOL achieves the cost-saving elimination of a complete work step in the installation of its hybrid sandwich running track systems. The track system consists of a prefabricated REGUPOL base mat, on which a high-quality wearing layer of polyurethane and broadcast EPDM granules is applied on site. The special feature of this construction: The optimally adjusted sports-physical properties of the track are guaranteed at every spot of the track due to the factory fabrication of the base mat.
Until now, indispensable during the construction of sandwich track systems of all types and all manufacturers: The sealing of the base mat in order to prevent the penetration of the self-levelling PUR wear layer during installation. Thanks to REGUPOL’s 4,0 technology, this step is no longer necessary. After bonding the REGUPOL base mat to the subbase, the liquid PUR wear layer is poured directly onto the base mat. Thanks to the special new installation technology, every gram of polyurethane remains on the surface and does not penetrate the base mat. In addition, the adherence of the wearing layer to the REGUPOL base mat improves. All sport-functional properties of the base mat, which are always identical due to the fabrication in our REGUPOL plants, remain unchanged.
Peter Breuer, Head of Sales for Sport Floors International at REGUPOL, summarizes the advantages of the 4.0 technology as follows: “For our customers all over the world, this installation technology represents a saving of three essential aspects: Material, installation-time and costs. Installation- and durability risks due to adverse weather conditions are also reduced significantly.”
For more than five decades, REGUPOL has been building running tracks and other sports floors for all areas of use and sports levels. REGUPOL was one of the first companies in the world to build running tracks from Germany all over the world and still does today. With the innovative installation technology 4.0 REGUPOL once again sets standards in the quality and function of sports floors.
