The most important features to look for in commercial dance flooring
Is cost the most important factor to consider when purchasing a portable dance floor for your property? That depends on how you define “cost.”
Here’s the thing. The MityLite Magnattach® Dance Floor is one of the most expensive floors on the market. Yep! We just admitted that. But, before you go… let’s look a little deeper.
This blog will show how cost encompasses more than list price when it comes to purchasing a commercial dance floor.
Because it’s so quick and easy to assembly and disassemble, Magnattach will save you up to 90% in labor costs. The floor will not scratch, dent, or warp, which means you save on maintenance and replacement costs as well.
How to determine total cost in the first 5 years after purchase
|Running Total||Year 0||Year 1||Year 2||Year 3||Year 4||Year 5|
Cost Of Ownership Over 5 Years.
*Calculations are based on hosting 4 events per month with a 20×20 floor and a $20-hourly labor rate. Estimated cost savings with Magnattach versus a screw-type floor.
Now let’s take a look at the important features to look for in a portable dance floor.
