Preventing tape damage on a maple sports gym floor is simple and easy. Don’t use tape. There is no such thing as “Gym Floor Tape.”
Using tape on your maple sports floor can damage not only the paint on top of the maple, but will also rip up the floor’s finish, causing damage to the gym floor itself. Tape will pull up paint, but the problem is the adhesive in the paint is stronger than the adhesive between the two coats of finish on your floor. Ripping up tape from your floor will cause both finishing coats underneath to be destroyed.
Gym floor inspectors can investigate your maple sports floor to see if your gym floor has been damaged by the use of tape. Using tape and destroying the finish can result in athletes losing control and mobility on your floor, as well as further peeling and chipping of the floor itself. Gym floor inspectors recommend never using tape, no matter what kind!
Gym Floor Inspectors can identify tape damage on maple sport gym floors, and document all of our findings in cases of litigation. Gym Floor Inspectors are the only unbiased, completely third party, inspector in the industry.
