Greatmats' elite is an affordable and professional dance studio underlayment flooring system that includes a foam bottom layer, topped by plastic athletic tiles. This dance subfloor option provides a cushioned floor for dancers in home and professional dance studios while its hard, plastic surface provides a firm foundation on which to lay marley dance floors.

The bottom layer is made from 1/2-inch thick interlocking EVA foam tiles that provide a cushioned underlayment surface. This base layer is easy to install as the universal interlocking system allows you to lock the tiles together in any direction. The interlocking design also allows you to transport and install the flooring in manageable weights and sizes. They are also easy to cut to fit around posts, corners or for wall-to-wall installations.

When used for advanced ballet and pointe, our customers recommend using our rubber underlayment instead of the foam tiles, called Plyometric Rolled Rubber. The rubber material comes in 4 ft. wide rolls, cut to custom lengths as needed. The material is 3/8-inch thick, and weighs about 1.8 lbs. per SF. No glue or tape is needed for installation of the rubber material.

The foam mats are durable and will last for years while the non-slip that surface will keep your second layer of subflooring from shifting underneath the marley surface material.

The second layer is an extremely durable layer of 5/8-inch thick raised polypropylene tiles that are capable of handling 20,000 pounds per square foot of static load. These hard 1x1 foot snap-together tiles, will fit tightly together and will not separate at the seams. They too can be cut to fit any space.

Install your marley floor on top of the hard, plastic tiles. Marley dance flooring sold separately.

This system is an easy and affordable dance studio subfloor system that requires no adhesives or special tools to install. Both layers of this professional dance studio subfloor system are free floating and can be un-installed and removed if needed.

This system is great for dance studios that cater to families or community events. If the area in which you are installing your dance floor is used for multiple purposes, you really have a 3-in-1 flooring solution.

With all three layers installed, you'll have a great all-purpose professional dance floor with both cushion and support.

Use just the black plastic center flooring layer to create an indoor athletic court. This layer is paintable and can be used as a surface for basketball or volleyball courts, as well as being used alone as a dance floor capable of handling street shoes without damaging the surface. A 3mm rubber underlayment is recommended under these flooring tiles when used as athletic flooring over hard surfaces as alone they do not provide significant shock resistance. This tile can also be installed over carpeting for multipurpose installations.

Your foam bottom layer can be used alone to turn the space into a play area for kids. It will soften your hard floor and provide extra warmth and comfort for your little ones. Waterproof, stain resistant, low odor, lead free and latex free, it's the perfect flooring for kids. Keep in mind that the primary purpose of the Dance Studio Subfloor Elite system is to provide proper support and cushioning for your marley dance floor. As such, you're foam bottom layer will likely form some indents from the weight of the other flooring sitting on top of it and may not have the same aesthetic value as foam floors used strictly for kids play areas. This does not, however, harm the functionality of the foam flooring.

When you want to return your space to professional dance studio form, simply put the layers back together, and you are in business. Both layers of the dance studio subfloor elite are easy to install, disassemble and reinstall. Both subflooring layers can be cleaned using a damp mop and common household cleaner. If using the layers separately, be sure to allow all components of the subflooring to dry completely after cleaning and before re-installing your professional dance flooring system. While both layers of the Dance Studio Subfloor Elite are waterproof, moisture can become trapped beneath or between the tiles, especially with a marley surface on top. Allowing everything to dry before reinstalling will help prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

Should this dance flooring system be installed in an area where moisture is already present, such as basements, be sure to check periodically to make sure that moisture is not becoming trapped beneath the dance studio subfloor.

The Dance Studio Subfloor Elite system is an economical alternative to sprung floors. This cushioned dance flooring solution should not be installed over carpeting.

Product Questions:

How does this floor sound with the marley on top for a hard tapper - will it hold up
The tap is very good as the marley is installed on top of the hard plastic tiles, it will last for many years in a commercial studio.
I received the Adagio Vinyl flooring for my top layer and the vinyl tape. I understand how to tape the pieces together, but I am unsure of what to tape it to on the sides? I purchased the foam mats and the court floor tile. So do I tape the vinyl to the court flooring or the cement?
When installing this dance sub floor elite product, tape the vinyl to the plastic tiles. Leave the vinyl marley dance floor 2 inches short of the edge of the plastic tiles in order to tape half on the vinyl and half on the tiles.
Will the plastic tiles remain in place once they are put on top of the foam mats? The concern is if the Marley is being taped to the tiles, what is to stop it from moving around, especially if this is not installed wall-to-wall.
We have many installations like this and we don't have any experience with the plastic tiles shifting. They tiles have enough resistance against the foam so that no movement occurs.
Would this be good under laminate?
We are not sure about laminate, its good under our Adagio marley material.
Does this price include both the foam and plastic layers. Can these layer be bought separately?
Yes the price includes both layers and yes the products can be purchased separately.
