As part of its expanded range, Facility Shield offers the GymPro Eco-Roll, Eco-Tile, and Courtside Runner, three types of gym floor coverings developed for performance, durability, and environmental sustainability. These slip and stain-resistant floor coverings, optimized for acoustics, provide significant protection for one of the largest investments schools, churches, and other organizational facilities can make.
Gym floors are typically not used exclusively for athletic events: the sheer scale of the investment, the square footage they occupy, and their toll on school budgets make them multipurpose investments that require protection. Other uses might include graduation ceremonies, school dances, PTA meetings, or even concerts. Spills are always a consideration, but for speeches or lectures – for example – acoustics, too, become a factor: the number and variety of different functions typically dictate the parameters of any facility’s required floor coverings.
Facility Shield’s GymPro Eco-Roll, made from 100% recycled polyester topcloth, is an upscale alternative to traditional vinyl coverings. While helping to prevent scratches and scuff marks, its waterproof and non-slip backing means that liquids cannot penetrate the gym floor. Light, portable, and anti-microbial, it also does not wrinkle – unlike vinyl – and performs like carpet, improving the interior’s acoustics.
The company’s Eco-Tile offering, a top choice among universities, colleges, and high schools, is made from recycled plastic bottles and also serves to prevent damage and extend the life of any multipurpose gym floor. The Courtside Runner, designed for basketball courts, offers moisture-wicking and slip-resistant barriers that protect players and their equipment from the natural damage of highly trafficked floors. The top cloth reduces dust, absorbs perspiration, and improves safety and traction for players’ shoes.
Facility Shield also features specialty rubber matting, entrance matting, and anti-microbial, EPA-registered hygiene matting that prevents the growth of mold, mildew, fungus, and odor-causing bacteria. Gym floor cover accessories and storage racks are also available.
“The time for more environmentally and acoustically-friendly gym floor covering has arrived,” said a company spokesperson. “Our durable and aesthetically pleasing mats are made here in the U.S. and serve the interests of both athletes and facility administrators who use their gym floors for different kind of events.”
