Section 09 6466 - Wood Athletic Flooring is a new Section based on products previously specified in Section 09 6429 - Wood Strip and Plank Flooring.
The new Section expands the content and focuses specifically on wood flooring for indoor sports. The Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA) is referenced as the material quality standard; mill membership and installer accreditation can also be included for quality assurance.
System types include fixed or floating floors, cushioned sleepers or subfloor systems, pre-engineered systems anchored using channels, retainers, or clips. The wood strip or parquet flooring in this Section is northern hard maple. Other species can be added with careful editing, but maple is by far the most common material.
