BSW tests the safety properties of its flooring products in its own testing facility. Testing procedures are based on the HIC value (head injury criterion) defined in EN 1177. This value defines the maximum fall height up to which critical head injuries are averted for an uncushioned fall. The safety heights of the regugym® flooring for climbing halls are stated in the technical data of the individual floor versions.
Long service life
When used and cared for properly, the wear layer of the regugym® flooring for climbing halls retains its functionality over many years. The Variofoam® and Regupol® elastic components leave no deformation recesses even when put to intensive use, and provide appropriate cushioning in the long term for the controlled impact of climbing athletes when abseiling.
BSW offers six different flooring types for climbing sport. Each type is rated for certain focal use. Furthermore, BSW also adapts the elastic and wear layers to individual requirements.
Complete flooring system
The range of regugym® flooring for climbing halls is made up of four complete flooring systems, with two for top rope and lead climbing and two for outdoor walls. They consist of multi-layer elastic structures with variable elasticity that provide a seamless covering for the floor. All flooring systems have already proved their worth in numerous climbing halls.
Together with the six complete flooring systems, other solutions can also be developed as flooring for specific buildings and uses. BSW produces the composite foam Variofoam®. This is the actual elastic layer and is available in numerous densities and thicknesses which in turn can be combined together in several layers. Numerous other flooring solutions are also available for outdoor use, going over and beyond the standard programme of the regugym® flooring for climbing halls.
The wear layers of regugym® climb 40 PU and 45/30 PU consist of polyurethane and are given a colour finish. 17 basic colours are available together with a choice of 15 line colours. Different sections of the floor can be distinguished by using different colours. See our BSW Flooring Designer.
