Rocky Mount, NC - Just weeks ago, the city of Rocky Mount, North Carolina celebrated the grand opening of its new 165,000-square-foot, $48-million multi-purpose facility. The Rocky Mount Event Center marked the occasion with a free concert, one of many athletic and special events the venue will be hosting.
Among the facility’s impressive features is a large fieldhouse that can be converted to fit eight basketball courts, 16 volleyball courts, or a 4,400-spectator concert space. But transforming the new courts into a concert-ready setting meant sourcing gym carpet for the gym floor, and Covermaster’s Platinum CoverTile™ proved to be the ideal choice.
This fall, more than 70,000 square feet of gym floor carpet tiles and storage carts arrived at the venue. The high performance, heavy-duty gym carpet tiles are easy to install and remove, while protecting gymnasium floors from damage during non-athletic events. The sound-absorbing carpet tiles feature a stain-resistant surface available in four colors and are designed to lay flat throughout the product’s lifetime.
The highly-anticipated project is expected to bring an economic boost to the city, providing jobs and an anticipated increase in tourism dollars.
