Get Ready to Rent a Dance Floor
Your local, ARA-affiliated rental store professionals want to help you rent just what you need to satisfy your unique portable dance floor needs. In order to do so, they often will ask you the following questions when you go to rent a portable dance floor.
What type of event are you planning? A black-tie event may call for renting a wood or a black-and-white dance floor, while a plastic dance floor certainly may suffice for a low-budget affair.
Will the event be outside? If so, you will need to either rent a waterproof dance floor or take steps to protect the dance floor. Polypropylene dance floors usually can stand up to water unlike most wood dance floors. However, you also can use a wood dance floor outside under a covered area if it offers drainage channels below it or if you install a plywood subfloor underneath it. Another possibility is to use a dance floor with a wood laminate finish.
Do you want the dance floor placed on an uneven surface? Rental store professionals ask this question to determine whether the installation will require the use of a subfloor.
How many people will attend the event? The answer to this question helps determine how big of a dance floor you will need to rent. Typically, no more than half of your guests will dance at any one time. In addition, you can estimate about two guests for each 3-foot square panel.
Once the rental store professionals set up your dance floor, the following tips will help ensure that it remains problem-free during your event.
- Routinely check the rented dance floor during your event to make sure that panels remain in good condition and do not separate. If you observe a problem, notify the rental store immediately.
- Do not disassemble and reassemble the rented dance floor panels yourself. When rental store professionals install your dance floor they make sure no gaps exist between the panels to reduce the risk of injury.
