Compare SignaWood Beech to Traditional Maple Floors:

SignaWood Beech: Traditional Maple:

Customized Performance: SignaWood features beautiful and strong pre-finished beech tongue-and-groove planks joined by a unique clip system, supported by an undercarriage that is tailored to your specific needs. Our certified sports flooring experts will determine which of our undercarriage systems best suits your needs - from a simple foam underlayment to a high performance engineered sleeper system.

Most traditional maple sports floors don’t offer a choice of undercarriage.

Quick, Clean, and Quiet Installation: SignaWood flooring arrives factory-finished, eliminating the need to acclimate, sand, seal, and finish. This cuts down installation time by 4 to 5 weeks (depending on undercarriage system)and prevents disruption to the rest of your facility due to the sounds and odors caused by sanding and finishing.

Traditional maple gym flooring systems must sit on-site acclimating up to 2 weeks prior to installation. Once installed piece-by-piece, and sanded with noisy and dust-causing machinery, they are finally sealed and finished with multiple layers of urethane allowing toxic fumes to permeate the facility.

Low-Profile Systems: SignaWood offers the lowest profile “sprung” wood flooring options, allowing for easier transitions to other floors and an easier accommodation to any ADA ramping. Our Clip System creates a dimensionally stable floor while eliminating the need for thick plywood subflooring. Because our beautiful beech planks are precision milled to 12’ lengths, the placement of end-joints is consistent and predictable. This allows us to use sleeper-type subfloors with less material than other systems that require sleepers to be placed closer together or use solid sheets of plywood. This reduces materials and installation time, and prevents “dead spots.”

Maple is milled to random lengths using lower milling standards. In order to support each strip head joint and prevent “dead spots”, each plank must be nailed to thick plywood subfloors that require 85% more materials than the SignaWood Clip System.

Longer Lifespan: SignaWood pre-finished 7/8” Beech flooring is 18% thicker than a sanded-in-place 25/32” maple floor, allowing it to withstand more maintenance sanding and refinishing when in use.

Maple gym floors must be sanded down to a ¾” thickness after installation, before it can be used. This means fewer sandings and refinishes, or a shorter lifespan.

Environmentally Friendlier Flooring: SignaWood Beech is harvested using a select-cut technique, targeting individual trees rather than entire forests, and a 100%+ reforestation policy. For every tree we cut down, new trees are planted in its place, ensuring good forest management. Any part of the harvested tree that cannot be used for flooring is used to fuel the production mill’s on-site power plant, with extra energy donated to surrounding cities. 

Maple is most often harvested by cheap and easy clear cutting techniques, which devastates old growth forests and their wildlife. While many maple mills are struggling to catch up to recently imposed environmental laws, none can match the zero waste policy in place at our Beech mills.

Our certified sports flooring expert will visit your facility to perform moisture tests, compare flooring samples, and confirm that SignaWood is the right solution for your athletic flooring needs. They will then determine which undercarriage system will produce the shock absorption, vertical deformation, and ball response that your particular facility requires. Because Signature Harwood arrives on site pre-finished, preparation is minimal and installation is much faster and easier than most hardwood flooring options. You expect your athletes to perform their best, and you should expect no less from your gym floor.
