Dalla Riva Sportfloors was born in 1982 thanks to Luigino Dalla Riva who started with small jobs on the parquet in his small workshop in Montebelluna (TV). Over the years, sanding, various colors, planing, painting have become increasingly frequent and these processes become the basis for perfecting on sports wooden floors. A few years after its birth, the small Montebelluna-based company specializes in sports wooden parquet, a niche sector at the time. The company laid the solid foundations in the early 2000s when it moved to the building in Vicolo Boccacavalla in Montebelluna (TV) where 500 square meters of offices and more than 1000 square meters of warehouse became the company’s backbone. Of fundamental importance was the internal technical staff throughout the history of Ariana. The guarantee of the installation of sports parquet and the certainty of assistance over time have distinguished us over time. Over the years Dalla Riva Sportfloors has tried to perfect its products to optimize the performance of athletes. Starting in 2004, the company became an associated partner of the FIBA (International Basketball Federation) and then grew and became a technical partner. In 2018 the company of the patron Dalla Riva Luigino takes another step forward and moves to the new headquarters in Via Vittime del Vajont n.7 in Caerano di San Marco (TV). A new and innovative building with avant-garde offices and a spacious warehouse become the focus of the activities.
Dalla Riva Sportfloors follows these five guiding principles:
1 – Installation is entrusted to our personnel
The gym sports floors, in fact, were realized by specialized, professional workers.
2 –Intervention speed
Our lengthy experience, matured in over 35 years of activity in the field, allows us to carry out rapid interventions. For example, to lay a new 700 square metre floor, we require only four working days, including markings and accessories. For major refinishing, Dalla Riva uses a special machine able to sand up to 300 square metres per day.
3 –Certification of sports floors
Dalla Riva’s sports floors are certified at the highest levels to guarantee our customers and above all the users-athletes full respect of all of the fundamental parameters. Our products have properties and requisites that allow them to be legitimately referred to as “sports floors”, thanks to the following sections:
–FIBA (International Basketball Federation);
– Classe 1 of reaction to fire of the Interior Ministry;
– New regulation fire reaction for the entire package EN la 13501 classification Bfl-S1 (EN ISO 9239 and EN ISO 11925);
– Regulations EN (European regulation);
– Certificate of Thermal Conductivity entire package (parquet and substructure);
– Thermal flow evaluation.
4 –Materials used
From the choice of sports parquet floors to the finishes: attention to the smallest detail at every stage. Hardwood floors, by nature, have characteristics that make them ideal for playing sports. They are able to reduce the force of magnitude of impact from shoes inherent in all sports activities. The cost-duration ratio, additionally, is more advantageous for wood floors than for other materials. A simple sanding, planing and varnishing suffices to renew the playing surface. Following the technical standards pertaining to the quality of the materials used, especially in the substructure (cushioning and plywood), uniform ball bounce is guaranteed at every point of the floor, which is important in every sport. The collaboration with our technicians is constant in order to create a product that can meet the current standards and ensure reliability even in the most important events.
5 –“Turnkey” sports floors
We deliver sports floors ready to use, delineating the field lines according to the rules of the sports federations. We are able to guarantee perfectly executed markings, thanks to the dispenser that distributes two layers of adhesive tape on the continuous lines and circles, in order to avoid colour smudging.
In all of the sports arenas, the sports floor is personalized according to the dominant game;
for example, if the dominant game is basketball, the paint (or three-second area), the center circle, and the lateral bands are fully coloured;
for volleyball the entire playing rectangle (9 x 18 m) is painted in a colour chosen by the club;
the penalty areas are coloured in five-a-side football;
and the regulation circles for roller skating, according to the size of the gym.
