What is an AirBase Sprung Subfloor?
AirBase means resilience and safety for dancers.
An AirBase is a Gerstung sprung subfloor created 50 years ago for Gymnasts, Athletes, and Dancers. It is a sturdy base that supports the top surface of vinyl or wood. The AirBase consists of a layer of hardwood plywood, supported by Energy Blocks™ that provide both absorbency and resilience to the dancer. The Gerstung Energy Block™ compresses and recovers quickly - better than anything on the market. The result is an even, shock absorbent, resilient floor providing lifting power and safe landings.
The Top Surface, is what the dancers feet touch. Top surfaces are selected according to the type of dance being done in the studio.
See our selection of Top Surface Vinyl/“Marley.”
