Robbins Timber Flooring

TVS Group is proud to announce that it is the UK-based partner for Robbins Sports Surfaces. Founded in 1894, Robbins is best known for its work with America’s multi-billion-dollar basketball league, the NBA. The family-owned firm is a preferred supplier to 15 of the NBA’s Arenas and 22 of its training and practice facilities. The difference in quality is evident, with 22 of the last 27 NBA championships being won by teams who play and train on Robbins Floors.

Robbins is one of only a few MFMA-approved, FSC-certified, Rainforest Alliance-certified manufacturers of solid maple floors in America, guaranteeing peace of mind when buying one of our floors. The solid maple floors are also one of the best long term investments in sporting performance; due to their construction and very nature, a Robbins/TVS floor should last for over 40 years with correct maintenance.

Robbins timber flooring is the best choice for professional sports. It is used in the NBA (National Basketball Association) for this reason. Every hardwood panel is perfectly made with flawless finishing and incredible attention to detail. Their hardwood sports flooring systems are designed to optimise the biomechanical interaction between the athlete and floor. They have several product lines available for a wide range of sports and flooring applications.

The range includes MVP® for maximum vibration protection, BIO-CHANNEL®, ECLIPSE™, BIO-CUSHION® CLASSIC, AIR-CHANNEL® STAR, SPORTWOOD® ULTRA STAR, ALL-STAR™ PLUS and DANZAIRE™. These flooring systems have different levels of cushioning to suit different sports, from dancing and basketball to netball.

We are a UK-based partner for Robbins Sports Surfaces. We’re able to supply the complete range of Robbins timber sports floors with design and installation included. Get in touch to find out more and we’ll send you a few more details.

University of Glasgow Installs Robbins Bio-Channel Star Flooring System

TVS were approached by the University of Glasgow Sport Department and the brief from the university was to make this an iconic venue for higher education sporting competition, with a dream of being among the best sporting surfaces in Scotland.

Out of the systems available, the Robbins Bio-Channel star system was selected  due to concerns over the temperature range, airborne humidity and location of the sports facility.

The University of Glasgow joins the University of Kent in the TVS Robbins family. Glasgow now host what we believe the best basketball and multisport floor in Scotland.


The first facility in the UK to install a Robbins MVP flooring

Kent is the first UK university to have a sustainably sourced Robbins solid maple wood floor installed by its UK-based partner TVS Sports Surfaces.

Robbins, which was founded in 1894, is a preferred supplier of competition and training surfaces to 80% of teams in the billion-dollar NBA. Of the last 27 NBA Championships, 22 were won by teams who play or train on the company’s courts.

The TVS/Robbins partnership was chosen after an exhaustive evaluation by the University of Kent, with quality and longevity being major factors in the final
decision along with the need to meet stringent international and UK sports standards.

The substructure work was undertaken within a week and the new flooring, using maple from both the USA and from Canada, was completed by TVS Sports Surfaces on schedule.

Engineered Timber Sports Flooring

Engineered timber sports flooring is the best choice for gymnasiums, school sports halls, sports centres and fitness centres. It’s significantly cheaper than hardwood but mimics the appearance of hardwood with a hardwood top layer.

Engineered timber is manufactured with a hardwood top, softwood middle and plywood base. It feels the same as hardwood underfoot and it looks nearly identical. This is not the same as laminate which is a different product entirely.

We specialise in specifying, designing, supplying and installing engineered timber sports flooring to any specification. Whether you need sports hall flooring or flooring for a gymnasium, we will make a fit-for-purpose engineered floor that meets your style, budget and performance requirements.

Engineered timber sports floors last around 20 years but they can last much longer if properly cared for. They require only regular cleaning and buffing to remove shoe marks. A high-quality engineered timber sports floor from us will look like new for years to come.

Timber Sports Floors For Any Budget

At TVS Sports, we pride ourselves on offering a solution for every budget. No matter how much you have to spend, we will be able to work something out. We offer a wide range of timber flooring systems with design and installation included.
