Omnisports PurePlay is Tarkett Sports’ top of the line multi-use gym flooring. It offers Class 3 shock absorption according to the ASTM F2772 standard. Omnisports PurePlay is the ultimate resilient flooring for basketball, volleyball, and many other sports, while at the same time accommodating non-sporting events with ease.


Omnisports PurePlay is a heterogeneous vinyl sports floor, meaning that it consists of multiple layers. Each layer or coating has unique function, such as increasing dimensional stability, reducing maintenance, increasing longevity, or providing sports performance and shock absorption. When these layers are combined using Tarkett’s virtually tension-free manufacturing process, the result is the ideal multi-use sports floor.  The unique properties of Omnisports PurePlay is the first asthma & allergy friendly™  certified sports floor by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

1 – Performance Protection:

On the surface of each Omnisports floor is a photoreticulated polyurethane treatment with durable micro-particles that provide easy maintenance with no stripping, waxing or recoating; protection against scratches, sole marks and stains; and optimal surface friction for safety.

2 – Wear Resistance:

Omnisports contains a pigmented wear layer made from pure PVC that carries a 25-year warranty.

3 – Dimensional Stability:

A compact PVC layer with embedded non-woven fiberglass gives Omnisports superior dimensional stability.

4 – Structural Reinforcement:

Combined with the PVC layer above, this vinyl layer forms the unique Strain-Splitting Core that is responsible for the Omnisports’ excellent indentation recovery and dimensional stability.

5 – Shock Absorbing Acoustic Foam:

This foam layer has an extremely dense cellular structure, providing unrivaled acoustic performance, ideal shock absorption, and natural ball bounce levels.

6 – Perfect Adhesion:

The backing of Omnisports is an engineered honeycomb texture for perfect adhesion to the subfloor.


Phthalate-Free Manufacturing:

Omnisports is one of the only resilient sports surfaces to be manufactured with phthalate-free technology. The components used to produce Omnisports are the same materials approved for food containers and children’s toys that can be placed in the mouth.

Healthier Indoor Air Quality:

Omnisports PurePlay is FloorScore® certified by SCS Global Services and it is the first asthma & allergy friendly™ certified sports floor by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.  These certifications indicate exceptionally low VOC emissions as well as low allergen retention.

Comprehensive Warranty Protection:

Omnisports is backed by a 25-year product and wear warranty plus a 25-year warranty for moisture tolerance, representing the highest level of coverage in the industry.

Possible Portability:

In some cases, Omnisports PurePlay can be used as a temporary athletic surface for tournaments or special events, such as the recent Games for Hope at Montreal Olympic Stadium. For information on this type of application, contact a Tarkett Sports representative.

Superior Sports Performance:

Sports performance is a key reason Omnisports PurePlay is such an effective gym floor. It has Class 3 shock absorption and meets all the requirements of ball rebound, vertical deformation, and surface finish effect outlined in the ASTM F2772 standard.

High Moisture Tolerance:

Omnisports PurePlay offers easier installation options with higher moisture tolerances. Using Tarkett Sports’ Tarkolay moisture barrier system, no moisture testing is necessary. Tarkett Sports’ solvent-free Multi-Poxy adhesive offers 98% RH per ASTM F2170.

Consistent Surface Texture:

Unlike some sport vinyl floors, Omnisports has the same embossed surface on both wood grain patterns and solid colors. This means consistent playability and a uniform texture of all material selected, regardless of color.

Easy Maintenance:

The embossed surface of Omnisports provides a unique texture that doesn’t trap dirt, reducing the need for cleaning and saving on maintenance costs.

Fast Indentation Recovery:

Any sports floor with significant shock absorption deforms at the surface under the impact of weight. This is usually noticeable when the weight is localized, like a chair or table leg. Omnisports unique structure allows it to recover faster than other sports vinyl.

Fewer seams:

With a standard roll length of 85 feet, Omnisports offers fewer cross-seams than competing sports vinyl flooring.

Installation Options


Exclusive to Omnisports Multi-Use, PurePlay and Active+, GreenLay™ installation allows faster installation, creates less waste, improves recycling, and tolerates high moisture conditions (up to 92% RH per ASTM F2170). This 98% adhesive-free system has been used by Tarkett Sports since 1995 with zero failures when installed properly. To date, 12 million square feet of GreenLay™ have been installed worldwide.

Multi-Poxy Adhesive:

If a full adhesive installation is required, Omnisports PurePlay can be installed using Tarkett Sports’ solvent-free Multi-Poxy adhesive. With Omnisports, Multi-Poxy can tolerate up to 98% RH per ASTM F2170. Multi-Poxy is not only safer for the health of installers, it has a high resistance to moisture and superior bond strength.

Multi-Set Adhesive:

For situations where moisture conditions are less of a concern, Omnisports PurePlay can be installed with Tarkett Sports’ Multi-Set Adhesive.

HS Sports Spray:

For a quick and easy installation that can tolerate up to 90% RH per ASTM F2170, Omnisports PurePlay can be installed using Tarkett Sports’ solvent-free HS Sports Spray.


If conditions require a moisture barrier, Omnisports PurePlay can be installed with Tarkett Sports’ Tarkolay. This system requires no moisture testing. Tarkolay can help against cracks and joint issues with a subfloor by isolating the flooring system away from the substrate, at the same time removing the potential for vapor pressure to form.
