At first glance, this appears to be a real hardwood basketball gym floor, but it is really the newest creation called PlankFlex. It is a 4”x36” interlocking modular tile surface that has a plastic base with a vinyl tile inserted into it in the shape of a wood plank floor. The benefit of this design is that this surface can be installed indoors in areas where traditional hardwood flooring cannot as this product is not impacted by moisture. The product is heavy, giving it a solid feel when bouncing a basketball on it yet it is cushioned enough to make playing on it much more comfortable. It also has a heavy duty wear layer to be able to hold up to the heavy use a gym floor receives. The best thing is it can be installed at a fraction of the cost of a real wood gym floor.
