Harlequin Cascade Vinyl Performance Floor
Harlequin Cascade has delighted generations of professional dancers, artistic directors, technical and stage managers. The silky-smooth embossed surface provides excellent grip and is often described as giving ‘warmth’ to a dance performance. It is widely used as a ballet floor but is also a popular choice for many other dance styles.
Adding to its high-performance features, Harlequin Cascade now comes with BioCote® antimicrobial protection to help keep the floor hygienically clean by creating a dance surface on which bacteria and other microbes cannot survive.
BioCote® technology works alongside existing cleaning practices to reduce the presence of microbes that can cause irremovable staining, bad odours and material degradation. By reducing microbes on the surface of the floor, BioCote® creates a more hygienic product by providing antimicrobial protection that will last for the lifetime of the flooring.
In addition to protecting the quality of the flooring, integrating BioCote® antimicrobial additives throughout the material helps to improve the hygiene of the floor by reducing the risk of microbial cross-contamination.
