forever marley

Forever Marley gives dancers and performers an exceptional, seamless, and long lasting dance surface that lessens the risk of surface related injuries by providing a uniform performance floor. The term “marley floors” has come to represent any vinyl surface rolled out over an existing floor. Those vinyl surfaces have a number of issues the dance community has just learned to deal with over time. Forever Marley eliminates these issues and provides an alternative that is more durable and versatile for the space.

rosco dance vinyl

This highly portable vinyl floor is excellent for situations where a permanent dance floor cannot be installed. Dance Floor is lightweight (less than 2 pounds per linear foot, 255 pounds per roll) and flexible, so it can be rolled and unrolled as needed. This makes the floor ideal for situations such as touring dance companies, and theatres without a permanent dance floor. The matte non-skid finish provides the controlled slip dancers require.

Dance Floor is reversible with black on one side and your choice of white or grey on the other.

Tarkett Cushioed Vinyl Floor

Dance is a unique physical activity that has specific performance demands when it comes to flooring. Dancefloor meets those standards in a precise way. The 3.5mm floor does not have the polyurethane coating that is common to sports surfaces, which provides a surface with extra grip. It also generates a measure of shock absorption through a foam backing that reduces strain.

l'air dance vinyl

For theatre or Studio, L’AIR’s own professional dance vinyl is the finest, most durable dance vinyl available – engineered with the same dedication to purpose and quality as our suspended sprung flooring. L’AIR dance vinyl is designed for years of service without the typical bubbling, buckling, and wrinkles associated with lesser quality products. Dance vinyl is suitable for permanent or semi-permanent installation and ideal for ballet, jazz, tap, modern and general stage use.

heat welding

Head welding seams in a resilient sheet or flooring can provide a virtually “seamless” floor for your facility. Many flooring installers cannot offer this service due to the specialized nature of the work. Here at Fosters we can provide this specialized service to fit your flooring needs.
