An intervention with attention to the smallest details carried out by our technicians in the historic PalaPerucatti sports hall in Siena, where the home team, Virtus Siena, will play home games in the Serie C Gold category.
The sports flooring had to be completely changed and many processes were necessary before the new parquet was installed.
To be precise, the works involved the removal of 3 floors below: two in wood and one in linoleum tiles. Subsequently, the screed was leveled in order to make it easier to lay the sports parquet. To solve the problems of rising damp, our technicians have installed two layers of vapor barrier (nylon).
The management of the Sienese team, advised by Mr. Dalla Riva has chosen and considered appropriate a sports parquet with oak essence with remarkable characteristics in terms of elasticity.
In this facility, only the white basketball signs will be present. Of strong visual impact are the colors of the three-second areas, of the center circle and of the side bands made with bright red RAL 3028.
Mr. Dalla Riva expresses all his satisfaction at the end of the works: “It is never easy to carry out this type of work as three types of flooring have been removed. Finally everything is ready for the new season. I also add that even if we have been absent on our social networks in the last few weeks, I guarantee you that we have continued with our work throughout the month of August. In the coming weeks we will unveil our new prestigious works with first-rate materials ”.
For Dalla Riva Sporfloors Lithuania is like home; also this time we are protagonists in the Baltic country with a prestigious supply. More than 1350 m2 of 22 mm solid hevea parquet for the multifunctional system. Our sports floor chosen is the FIBA approved Compact 45, made up of a substructure with joists with mattress and solid wood parquet for a total of 47 mm in thickness. The sports flooring has characteristics of strength and durability over time being sandable more than 5 times for a total life of 50 years.
In the futuristic Lithuanian gym, basketball with 8 baskets dominates unchallenged for a total of 4 basketball courts: one main central and three cross for training. There are also the futsal track in red and volleyball with three fields (one central and two transversal). An important presence of all sports in this facility which will be used every day by different clubs.
There is also a partition wall to maximize space and obtain independent fields: competitions can be performed transversely and simultaneously. The retractable telescopic stands are also of considerable impact, all to increase or decrease the playing space. In short, a real sports hall in which we are proudly present.
Our presence in the Baltic country has been stable for years; we have reached the major cities such as Vilnius and Kaunas, without neglecting the towns such as Kelme, Rietavas, Silute and Telsiai where basketball is the master.
Following the flooding that took place towards the end of last year, the historic Palasport of Abruzzo called “Palasenna” needed some restoration works. Always the star in the best sports halls on the Peninsula, Dalla Riva Sportfloors could not miss in this splendid multifunctional setting.
Specifically, the processes performed were:
A total of 950 square meters where 5-a-side football will dominate in blue (until 2017 the home team played in Seria A), but basketball (white color) and volleyball (in red) will also be present.
Recall that our company has also been the protagonist of the works previously carried out in 2014; the Municipal Administration has focused on the safe and has still chosen the quality of our floors.
As can also be seen from the last photo, the essence of our oak does not present knots on the boards, the shade is homogeneous and uniform (without the light-dark effect) on the entire flooring.
This sports hall also adds to our long list of high-level systems, an unequivocal sign of the reliability of our company.
In Piedmont there is no way and there are no rivals regarding sports parquet in “palasport” and sports halls in general; we have always been chosen in high-level systems.
Also in this case, regarding the sports flooring, our company was chosen because it was considered the best in Italy by professionals in the sector; once laid … it is no longer reinstalled …
The quality of our FIBA approved parquet and certified with the European standards EN 14904 (surface sports areas) and EN 13501 (reaction to fire), attention to detail during the installation operations carried out by our internal technicians, the use of professional machinery at the forefront, the reliability of our company and the quality of the materials used and sought have proved to be a winning choice for the client.
The product chosen is Playwood Rubber Wood 22, flooring chosen for the homogeneity of the ball rebound on the entire surface designed specifically for basketball; it consists of a 15 mm elastic mat, a 12 mm cross-fiber distribution surface and the 22 mm solid hevea parquet. Sturdiness and durability over time are the characteristics that distinguish it.
The main sports in this facility are basketball (white track) and volleyball (red track). The peculiarity is the coloring of the side bands, the center circle and the three seconds areas of fir green (RAL 6009) which gives an aggressive tone to the entire playing field.
This sports hall stands as a reference point in the entire Piedmont region and especially for sports clubs in the Verbano-Cusio-Ossola province. We remember that in this area we have been protagonists with our processes in the gyms of the municipalities of Domodossola (3 systems), Druogno, Omegna (4 systems), Ornavasso, Varallo and Verbania (4 systems).
A maintenance with attention to the smallest details carried out in the sports hall of Camisano Vicentino (VI). For our company it is a return to the Vicenza sports facility; in the year 2000, in fact, we made the sports flooring with the supply and installation.
The smooth surface covered 1100 square meters and was subsequently painted with a three-coat cycle certified to the European standard UNI EN 13501 (reaction to fire) in class Bfl-s1.
One of our technicians, satisfied with the work, comments: “Dalla Riva has been providing professional machinery for the execution of the work for years. In this case, the simplicity of the intervention is given by the seat sander with man on board which, thanks to its constant speed and the dragging unit, operates homogeneously over the entire surface. Physical, mental and comfort comfort is fundamental for us operators in this type of processing. I am proud to be able to use these cutting-edge equipment that facilitate our work. We certainly do not use vintage and “inherited” manual sanding machines “.
Even in this period of recovery, post lockdown due to COVID-19, we do not stop and we operate in total safety. Our internal technicians, following the anti-contagion protocols, completed the work in just 6 days.
In the multipurpose facility of Vicenza, basketball will be practiced, traced in white, with the FIBA blue colors and volleyball traced in red.
Special mention for handball, traced in black; in fact in this sports facility the Handball Arcom Emmeti plays and trains, a company affiliated to the FIGH (Italian Handball Federation) which plays in Serie A2 group A.
After 12 years, the work was necessary to restore the paint of the sports parquet of the sports hall located near the sea in Zinola, in the municipality of Savona, according to UNI EN 13501 (reaction to fire). Specifically, a sanding with different abrasive papers was carried out, a three-layer painting of skating paint in compliance with European legislation and the tracing of the hockey signs, the skating rims, the departures of the skating race and finally also the futsal ones.
On worn and particularly deteriorated parquet our company carried out the sanding in a deep way, removing about 1 mm of surface.
At the end of the work, our technical expert in sanding comments: “The first roughing took place with 36 grit abrasive paper and we sustained a consumption of 7 pieces. We then carried out the second passage with 50 grits (5 pieces), the third passage with 80 grits (7 pieces) and the last passage with 120 grits (7 pieces).
The numbers were important in this process:
We are proud to add another prestigious reference in the city of Savona which succeeds that of the gym in Via Trincee. In the homonymous province we also remember our works in the municipality of Vado Ligure and Varazze.
At the end of the work we noticed sorry faces of our internal technicians; we do not work so often in a seaside resort and with such a beautiful landscape.
Our company scores an important reference in the province of Naples, to be exact at the PalaPuca di Sant’Antimo sports hall. A work done in detail that in succession with the disposal and transport to landfill of the old flooring and the installation of the new sports parquet signed Dalla Riva Sportfloors. All this in 6 working days for a total of 700 square meters of new playground flooring.
The FIBA blue coloring of the three second areas and the two-meter boundary strip is of great impact, just like at the PalaBarbuto in Naples, made by our company last year on the occasion of the XXX Universiade. Also for the same international exhibition, we made the sports parquet at the PalaTedeschi in Benevento.
It’s now clear that for some years our company has placed sports halls and sports facilities of some importance as its main target, as in this case. The sports floors of the best buildings in Italy are of our signature and we can only be proud of them.
The patron Dalla Riva Luigino comments: “Fitness gyms with a simple mat and just as much parquet are certainly not left out but we are consulted on important structures. As a reference point in Italy for sports parquet floors, this is the only goal we set ourselves, trying to improve our products more and more “.
Furthermore, in the coming summer, we will be present in the Campania region with two other future projects.
