Sprung Floors By Show Works


Show Works has changed the sprung floor industry in Australia. Why shouldn’t dancers in Australia have access to affordable sprung floors? They
are available overseas so why not here? With our unique set up, (Show Works is the designer, inventor, manufacturer and distributor all under the one roof) we save heaps of overheads and pass the savings on to you!

SprungFloor by Show Works is manufactured from 18mm B-C/C-D grade structural plywood; the closed cell pads that provide the force reduction are specially imported. We have not been able to find a comparable rubber in Australia (believe me, we have tried!).

Our floor is supplied in an uncoated form; this allows you to set your budget by choosing how you want to finish it.

Potential floor finishes include

  • Floor paint – Check with your local paint expert
  • Clear sealer – We recommend Bona Traffic
  • Dance vinyl – Show Works are national distributors of Tarkett Dansfloor.Experience tells us that no two dancers are alike so why should we decide the finish? The choice is yours!
