Granwood blocks are used in both Traditional GRANWOOD and GRANDSPRUNG floor systems. Both systems are multipurpose and offer multi-sport capabilities (basketball, volleyball, aerobics, dance etc.). GRANSPRUNG is an area elastic sports flooring system maintaining advantages of Traditional GRANWOOD flooring while achieving an energy impact absorbing playing surface.
