How to Store Marley Dance Floors and Vinyl Rolls

By Brett Hart Created: September, 2017 - Modified: October, 2023

If you belong to a dance company that tours often, you know the importance of having a quality dance floor to perform on. In many cases, that involves bringing your own marley flooring with you. But transporting that precious cargo isn't always the easiest. When stored or transported improperly, your beautiful floor can become bunched, wavy, creased, or worse yet, torn.

Properly preparing your Marley roll for transport or storage can save you a lot of headaches from trying to flatten out your floor again - or possibly even having to replace the floor.

One thing to keep in mind is that vinyl flooring rolls should not be stored rolled up on their sides without a center pipe or core tube for it to be rolled around.

Wavy MarleyThis will cause your Marley vinyl roll to flatten and, when unrolled, the flooring will be rippled - in some cases, irreparably - especially when stored improperly for extended periods of time.

The best way to store or transport your Marley when not in use is to roll it up either around the cardboard tube it came with or a PVC pipe of similar diameter. Using releasable vinyl tape, tape the roll tightly together and store the roll on end in an upright position. This will prevent distortion or warping of your flooring and leave it in the same condition as when you unroll it for your next use.
