Baltimore, MD -
It was going to take a lot of gym carpet to replace the aging gym floor cover at Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland — close to 25,000 square feet to be exact!
Alma mater of former NBA star Larry Stewart and home to the Coppin State Eagles, the school contacted Covermaster with a unique request. Not only did they need to cover and protect their hardwood basketball court, but the gym floor carpet had to be customizable to fit different floor configurations.
The answer was Platinum Easyroll Gym Carpet, a roll-out style of heavy-duty gym floor covering designed for non-athletic events. At ¼-inch thick, it cushions against chairs, staging and high heel damage, and also acts as an acoustical barrier in open areas. The school ordered 64 sections of six-foot-wide rolls in varying lengths, enough for complete floor coverage, no matter the event or bleacher setup. Twelve mobile storage racks and two heavy-duty power winders completed the recently-ordered system.
Easyroll gym flooring carpet are stain resistant and easy to clean. Each section is simple to roll out, and comes with the exclusive SecureLap seam system to prevent tripping hazards and liquid spills from damaging the basketball hardwood floor.
