Spring Floor Construction

  • Normal construction of a Spring Floor involves two (staggered) layers of 1/2 inch plywood. Customers looking to create a “heavy-duty” spring floor could consider using a 5/8 inch BOTTOM layer with a 1/2 inch TOP layer. This would be suitable for college-age athletes. There is no need to go beyond 5/8 inch — using two layers of 3/4 inch plywood is overkill and will result in the boards being too stiff.
  • The manufacturer recommends using TWO layers of 1/2 inch BCX Plywood on top of Palmer Power Springs. (BCX plywood is sanded on one side of the plywood panel). For added strength, the layers should be staggered so the top layer covers the “seams” of the bottom layer. OSB Board is NOT recommended because it breaks (shatters) too easily. If you choose to use OSB Board — it is suggested that the BOTTOM layer is 1/2 inch BCX plywood and the top layer is 1/2 inch OSB.
  • 6-foot x 42-foot SPRING FLOOR – To create a 6’ x 42’ Spring Floor for Tumbling, the following materials would be needed:
    1. 315 Palmer Springs (308 Needed but should have a few extra on hand just in case).
    2. 21 Sheets of 4-foot x 8-foot x ½ inch BCX Plywood (the wood has to get cut down to 4 foot x 6 foot) – for two (2) layers of staggered plywood.
    3. ONE Roll of 6′ x 42′ x 1 3/8″ OR 2″ Carpet Bonded Foam.
  • The option of using wood screws or bolts (with washers on both ends) to hold together the two layers of plywood depends on the application.
