Trainer 3

Trainer 3 is the most widely used sports system in the Trainer Series of wood flooring. Instead of a sleeper system, it incorporates two layers of 15/32” plywood installed directly over a series of shock pads. Trainer 3’s plywood support creates a solid surface, while the shock pads reduce stress on lower extremities through shock absorption.

Performance Diagram The ClutchCourt Trainer 3 system is the most popular maple sports floor in the Trainer Series. Unlike other systems, Trainer 3 incorporates two 15/32” plywood layers that sit directly on 3/8” shock pads. This significant foundation gives the system a solid feel and consistent performance under high traffic.

1 – Shock Pads: These 3/8" rubber shock pads provide comfort and shock absorption to the Performance system. They are available in a variety of different constructions with different durometer measurements.

2 – Plywood: This layer consists of two 15/32” sheets of plywood, which offers a stable foundation for the system.

3 – Northern Maple: The surface of the Performance system is made of 25/32” or 33/32” Northern Maple from WD Flooring in Wisconsin, a MFMA maple flooring provider.

Maple Grades

  • Premium Grade Maple: Premium Maple includes only boards that are free of any discoloration or distinguishing marks. This grade yields a court surface with the most visually uniformity.
  • Second Grade Maple: By far the most popular grade option, Second Grade Maple creates an aesthetically unique court by blending some boards with visible grain marks and others that are unmarked.
  • Third Grade Maple: Third Grade Maple is the least expensive of the ClutchCourt maple grades. A majority of the boards included in this grade have distinguishing marks and unique grains, creating a court with distinct character.
