Are You Spending Too Much on Your Gym Floors?

Gym floors are some of the most expensive floors in your facility. Finding a cost effective way to maintain them can be difficult. Buckeye’s Reflections® Wood Floor Program can reduce costs, provide excellent durability, and extend the life of your wood floors.

One of the simplest ways the Reflections program saves money is through the training it provides. With Reflections, employees can be trained to prep and recoat gym floors. For daily, weekly, and as-needed procedures, the Reflections Maintenance Wall Charts guide employees in proper gym floor maintenance procedures. The program provides comprehensive in-person and online training with tools like the Reflections Maintenance training videos. These videos provide employees with valuable information, covering topics like burnishing wood floors and vacuuming mats.

Buckeye uses the most innovative methods to help save time and money. When you’re ready to coat your gym floor, the Buckeye Reflections Wood Floor Program covers the proper techniques for applying both oil and water-based wood floor coatings including recommended product coverage, dry times, cure times, recoat windows, and more. With Buckeye’s latest and most innovative preparation method, the Gym Bond/Autoscrubber prep method, facilities can save up to 60% of the typical time and labor spent on prepping wood floors.

Gym Bond

A complete program is the best way to extend the life of your wood floors and maintain their beauty, performance, safety, and durability. The Buckeye Reflections® Wood Floor Care Program combines Arena® water-based wood floor coatings and Coliseum® oil-based wood floor coatings with proper procedures to achieve beautiful, longer-lasting wood floors. The Reflections program also includes specialty products, one of which is Gym Bond, a water-based urethane bonding agent.

Gym BondGym Bond is formulated with exclusive technology to provide maximum adhesion when applied to previously coated maple wood floors before urethane wood floor coating application. When applied, Gym Bond drastically reduces peeling from tape on a gym floor and increases adhesion when applied both under and over gym floor paint and decals. Only one coat of Gym Bond is required and it covers 1,800 square feet per gallon.

Gym Bond is a low-VOC water-based bonding agent, making it safer for the environment. It also has a very low odor, excellent leveling, and dries quickly with no ambering. A floor coated with Gym Bond may be recoated with a Reflections water-based floor coating in 2 hours or a Reflections oil-based floor coating in 4 hours.

Other specialty products in the Reflections Wood Floor Care Program include Screen Clean® Ready-To-Use Floor Prep Cleaner, Tenacity® Pre-Cleaner, Buckeye Green Light Daily Cleaner, and Floortonic® Burnishing Liquid. In combination with Gym Bond, these other specialty products maximize your floor coating adhesion and make it easy to use the equipment already available in your facility.
