Alvas Matlay marley-type dance flooring is manufactured of specially-formulated poly vinyl chloride (PVC vinyl) with a non-skid matte finish. It is great for multi-purpose use, all forms of dance and most stage areas. Matlay is reversible with black on one side and your choice of gray or white on the other.
OUTDOOR USAGE PRECAUTIONS
On an outdoor surface, because of the “sun heat”, only the white side up of the white/black floor may be used. The gray and black floor gets too hot in the sun and can cause burns. Keep in mind possible inclement weather, as this could cause safety concerns as well. Sweat, any kind of humidity or moisture can cause a slippery surface. If it gets wet, it must be dried off before anyone gets on the floor.
Weight: Approx 2lbs per linear foot
Thickness: 0.044” (1.1mm)
Full Roll Dimensions: Approx 60′ x 6′ x 1/8” (Lengths will be longer than stated)
Color: Reversible Gray/Black or White/Black
Like all “Marley” or PVC vinyl sheeting, Matlay can be affected by temperature, humidity, applied pressure, etc. It will expand or contract to some degree. In extreme temperatures such as approx -20ºF, the Matlay could “cold crack” with impact such as dropping the roll. At approx 160ºF, it can cause minor shrinkage. If the rolls of Matlay have been exposed to extreme temperature, then bring them back to room temperature before unrolling them.
Installation is Semi- Permanent with top tape-down application. Nothing other than Alvas’ flooring tape is acceptable for securing the Matlay to the surface without prior clearance from Alvas’ personnel. See Matlay Stretching & Tape-Down Instructions.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
See Matlay Cleaning Instructions.
Ensure Matlay is dry, clean of any foreign substances (such as grease, oil, dirt, etc) and all tape is removed before rolling it up for storage. Matlay should be rolled evenly and tightly, and then stored horizontally on an even, flat and smooth surface with no heavy objects on top of it. Alvas Matlay Core (or equivalent) must be used. Alvas Storage Cart is an added handy option.
