ABOUT THE HOME STUDIO SURFACE  –

Your professional-grade, removable studio flooring solution made for pole dance

What it is

The Home Studio Surface (the ‘floating’ pole dance floor) is the leading professional-grade, removable flooring solution for pole dancers.  ‘Floating’ means that the Home Studio Surface sits upon the existing flooring and is not permanently attached to anything with hardware or adhesives. It can be efficiently removed, stored, and re-assembled.  Home Pole Studios’ ultra-lightweight, scratch-resistant panels make the Home Studio Surface the highest-quality removable flooring solution for pole dancing at home.

Professional Quality Floating Floors for Pole Dancers

Who can use it

The Home Studio Surface is designed for anyone who pole dances.  It can also be used for yoga, stretching, acro and more.  Whether you are a pole or aerial instructor, attend studio classes in person, or subscribe to online lessons and practice at home, you need somewhere to practice or host lessons.  Installation and assembly are straightforward and can be completed by one or two adults in just a few minutes (see our YouTube channel for assembly videos and more).

Design and Use

Our most popular size is made up of two 4’x8′ panels that join and lock together, creating an 8′ x 8′ dance floor measuring less than 1“ thick, providing you with 10’+ diagonals for floorwork and more.  Each panel is framed with solid wood, filled with an extremely lightweight shock-absorbing core material, then finished with a scratch-resistant laminate top for an incredible studio experience every time you dance, whether barefoot or in heels.  This design helps keep the Home Studio Surface flush and level under the tension of the pole, even on carpeted surfaces.  This is an important distinction from all-wood “sprung” floating floors, which are designed to bend/give under a dancer’s weight, making them ideal for ballet, tap, etc.  However, these types of sprung floors are not ideal for use under a removable pole, due to the tension required to safely install a removable pole, which can cause gaps, lips, and other discrepancies between flooring segments.  The Home Studio Surface is specifically designed to give you a smooth, continuous dance space.

Your pole can be placed anywhere on your Home Studio Surface, but you may wish to read our recommendations on placement for ideal usage.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does it come with a pole? 2018-01-31T04:31:36+00:00

We do not design, manufacture, or sell poles, but we have friends who do! There are a number of reputable companies that make professional poles for home and studio use. We highly recommend X-Pole, the world leader in pole and aerial fitness. [link to custom URL to be provided by XPole]

Can I use my Home Studio Surface on top of carpet? How about tile or concrete? 2018-01-31T04:53:21+00:00

The Home Studio Surface is designed to be used on any type of existing flooring: carpet, tile, concrete, or wood. For ideal performance, the floor you’re placing it on should be flat within 1/8″ across the space. Carpeted spaces with high-pile or unevenly-treaded carpeting, and subfloors that are not flat within the above specifications, may see a small amount of additional “give” in their floor and/or seam during some activities. Our product testers report that this has not significantly affected their usage. Many of our clients who use their surface on concrete have placed a layer in between the existing flooring and their surface such as a foam or rubber mat, both for comfort while dancing and protection for the bottom face of their Surface.

Is the Surface portable? 2018-03-06T13:43:24+00:00

The Home Studio Surface can be taken apart and stored, or moved to a new space, just like any piece of quality furniture that you have invested in for your home, lifestyle or business. Two adults can easily install, remove, and re-assemble the suraface. The Home Studio Surface is designed to give you a professional studio experience in your home dance space without renovations — an investment you’d most likely lose when you move. If you are in need of an all-in-one stage setup that you can bring along to performance gigs etc. (e.g. fits inside most cars), we recommend the X-Stage.

How is it installed or assembled? 2018-01-31T04:31:34+00:00

Installation is quite easy. You will need some basic tools, such as a measuring tape, and a hammer/pry bar/screwdriver (if opening shipment crate yourself). Locking the panels together will require a 7/32″ hex key (provided for you). Have another person there to assist you with transferring your flooring panels into your home or studio space, as well as assembling them. Each 4×8 piece weighs approximately 54 lbs. You’ll want to check out our YouTube channel for the install demo video & more. **

Where can I put the base of the pole? 2018-03-06T13:43:11+00:00

8′ x 8′ Surfaces: For best results, place the pole 8 – 12 inches away from the center seam. This will give you at least one, if not two, clear diagonals (over 10 feet long!) that you can use for splits, rolls, and other floorwork. Place the edge of the pole base no fewer than 24 inches from the outside edges of your surface. This is so that you have room to walk and dance around the pole. 
8′ x 12′ and larger Surfaces: For best results, ensure that the edge of the pole base is no fewer than 24 inches from the outside edges of your surface. This is so that you have room to walk and dance around the pole.

Can I use the Surface with any type of pole? 2018-01-31T04:54:40+00:00

The Home Studio Surface is built to accommodate adjustable-height tension-mounted poles of every size and brand. The Home Studio Surface works very well with all bottom-loading adjustable poles, including both removable and permanently-mounted designs. The Home Studio Surface’s current design does not accommodate poles that require screws, adhesives or other external fasteners that fix the base of the pole to the floor beneath. Do not drill, bolt, or screw into your Home Studio Surface as this may compromise the structural integrity of the item and will void the warranty.

How do I care for my Surface? 2018-03-06T13:42:58+00:00

Your surface is already sealed and finished, and does not need urethane or wax treatments.  Care for and clean as you would other laminate flooring:

  • Sweep regularly
  • Don’t walk or dance on the surface in traditional dress shoes, which can scuff — always use pole shoes or footwear with a rubber sole
  • Remove any dark scuffs with a soft dry cloth or tennis ball
  • Avoid spilling liquids on the surface and dry immediately if any occur
  • Spot-clean small areas where sweat or grip products may be left behind, by using a soft cloth with a cleaning product approved for laminate surfaces (check the label)
  • To clean the entire surface, do not “wet mop” but instead damp-clean with a pre-moistened pad, wringing out excess fluid first if necessary
  • Small chips can be repaired, and center seam(s) can be filled in, with wood putty/filler products available at most hardware stores
  • Do not drill or nail into the top of your surface, as this is likely to damage the wood-laminate surface, and may also damage the core material or compromise the structural integrity of the product
  • Bear in mind, this product was designed by pole dancers, so it has been created to withstand the force of some shoe impact.  To minimize the wear and tear upon your surface, be mindful of excessive force.  Finally, be aware that misuse or excessive use is likely to cause abnormal wear and tear, and could even cause irreparable damage.  (Dance safely, folks.**)

Beginning in 2018, we will be releasing an upgraded design-model that will better serve your home studio needs, and a NEW ordering/shipping system that will make ordering simpler and save you money on shipping.

Once an ordering period ends, fulfillment will take 8-10 weeks for production.  Because our unique high-quality products are made to order, each item is treated with the utmost care.  We do not offer rush ordering because we believe that quality is the most important factor when investing in your home studio.

How is it delivered? How much does shipping cost? 2018-01-31T05:43:31+00:00

Group shipping

Starting in the Summer of 2018 with our Model 3.0 Release Sale, we will be shipping to Affiliate locations in batches, which will allow the shipping cost to be shared and save you money on your order (when compared to individual crating and shipping costs).  Details will be available soon — join our list to be notified. [link to Join list/Contact us page].  You’ll be able to pick up your surface from the Affiliate, such as a local studio.  We recommend picking up in a truck, SUV, wagon, or van that can safely fit 4’ x 8’ panels. We recommend a layer of cushion around the sides during transport to avoid accidental nicks and scratches.  Studio owners, learn more about the bonus structure and benefits of our Affiliate program by clicking here.  [link to Affiliates page]  Affiliate Sign-up period ends March 31st, 2018.

Custom orders / non-group shipping

If you cannot pick up your surface at an Affiliate location, we understand and can arrange for individual crating and shipping.  For individual orders within the continental United States, crating + shipping will generally cost $325-$450 depending on what size Surface you order and where it is being delivered.  The freight service will contact you to set up an appointment, and you’ll need to be present at the time of delivery.  The freight service provides outdoor delivery and some assistance off-loading from the truck, so be sure to have another person there to assist you with transferring your panels into your home or studio space.  Open crates carefully so as not to damage the contents.

DELIVERY, ASSEMBLY and MORE

ASSEMBLY:  Put together your Home Studio Surface 

THE POLE: Re-install your pole 

XPOLES, all models: 

You’ll need to adjust your XPole height by winding it back down about two inches before re-installing it.  If your pole is adjusted such that you cannot twist it down two inches, you may need to remove an extension.  In that case, take out your smallest extension, and then use the adjusting mechanism to increase height until the pole fits again.

From there, follow installation instructions starting with the segment from 2:23-3:23, and from 13:00-end in the XPole Install video (2014 and newer models).

See segment from 2:35-2:55 and also 5:55-end in the XPole Install video (2013 and prior models).

LILMYNX, all models: 

Contact manufacturer and/or consult warranty (if applicable) on your pole purchase.  Most LILMYNX pole heights are not adjustable, which should be taken into consideration before changing the height of your dance space.  Home Studio Surfaces, as noted on our About page, are compatible with adjustable-height poles.  If you are planning to make the Home Studio Surface a permanent or semi-permanent part of your home studio along with a fixed-height pole, we recommend you install your Surface first and then measure the height for your pole.

Platinum Stages, removable multi-piece:

You may need to ensure your pole is on the shortest setting before re-installing and/or removing extensions.  See 0:38-end in the Multi-Piece promo video and consult manufacturer or warranty (if applicable) on your pole purchase.
