Liberty is a modular sprung dance floor system composed of sprung floor panels laid in brickwork fashion and available for either permanent installation in dance or drama studios or as portable stage panels for touring. Designed for safety and suitable for a range of dance disciplines, when combined with a Harlequin dance surface Liberty provides the ultimate floor, allowing performers to concentrate on their art without fear of falling or injury.

  • Area elasticity providing ‘give’ or flexion over the section where a performer lands.
  • Uniform suspension across the whole floor eliminates ‘hard spots’ experienced with traditional wood floors.
  • Consistent shock absorption dramatically reduces injury risk and enhances performance.
  • Quick and simple to install with flexibility for re-configuration.
  • Guarantee for reasonable wear and tear covers five years.
  • Harlequin Liberty permanent sprung floors are fitted by Harlequin's own Contracts Division as part of a total package to ensure the floor is correctly installed and is fully compliant with current regulations and standards.

The system can be adapted to withstand heavy loading including retractable seating.
